Design for manufacturability is also known as design for manufacturing or DFM in short. In the industry of plastic injection molding. DFM is more often like”design for moldability“, as mold makers focus on the feasibility of injection molding process. A report (normally in PPT) on DFM to show customers how to optimize part design, our molding solution and potentially problem areas of your plastic parts.

（1） Generally, effect to the roundness by the gate type tend to be better in the following order.
Side gate ＜ Pin gate（double points） ＜ Pin gate （triple points） ＜ Center sprue gate
（2） Weld might influence the roundness, especially in GF reinforced grade, so take care of the gate location, try to mold under a good liquidity condition, and be careful of the mold gas vent.
（3） Deformation towards surface run out direction is often occurred by the shrinkage ratio difference between diametrical direction and circumferential direction. Other than taking balance in shape, there is a method that place a rib towards circumferential direction to strengthen the stiffness and remedy. The multi-point pin gate is relatively effective against the surface run out.
