Injection Molding Complex Parts

Undercuts

Adding Undercuts and Side Action without Sacrificing Speed

 

A side action is used in the mold to create undercuts in the custom plastic part. They allow design features like interlocking snaps and housing ports to be successfully molded. While undercuts add cost, they allow design engineers to keep the functionality of the designs intent.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • – Requirements for successfully molding with undercuts
  • – Challenges you may face when incorporating undercuts into your design
  • – Tips and tricks for using undercuts
