For a plastic part or assembly to perform as expected, proper consideration must be given to material selection, part design, tooling, and processing using a holistic approach.
In a lot of instances, design errors are mistaken as tooling, processing and material issues. Design errors are even sometimes misclassified as customer abuse.
The author conducted a Pareto analysis on the top 100 defects in molded parts that had the appearance of material, tooling, processing and customer issues and found that most of them could be traced back to fundamental issues in design.
Some real examples will be shown to drive home the point.
A possible solution to avoiding failures will be discussed.
