OEMs often require functionality and quality from the smallest products possible — which often forces engineers to creatively meet requirements. Increasingly, micro-molded plastic parts are a suitable solution. However, before putting these parts to use, designers must test concepts, investigate materials, prototype component options, and validate performance.

To help designers navigate this process, engineers from Accumold are presenting a technical webcast on Tuesday, December 14, 2010 at 2:00 p.m., to cover key issues and caveats OEMs should understand when working internally or with outside vendors on precision molds. The webinar will cover:

  • Micro molding/precision molding

  • Top design considerations for precision molded parts and micro features

  • Fine or micro feature performance and material selection

  • Prototyping technologies, performance, and technical limits

There will be an open Q&A Session with Accumold engineers at the end of the webinar. Visit machinedesign.com/node/87130 to register for the conference for free.
