Design & Development Upmold
Design & Development
At Upmold ,We will assess your drawings and provide engineering guidance to help you design moldable parts that are optimized for manufacture. From tool design concepts to process development and validation, we ensure that all aspects of production meet the ultimate goal of producing high quality injection molded parts.
Product Design Assistance
Our suggestion on this steps to design the product features, specs and industrial design follow. Upmold is certainly in a position to help you develop your new projects or re-design current products and implement these steps on behalf of clients by meeting in person and teleconferencing with you and your sales & marketing and technical people each step of the way. some information should refer to Plastic Injection Molding Part Design Guidelines.

At Upmold,we are using the latest engineer software for part design and mold design,we use that such as below
Design For Manufacturability
DFM is a helpful tool that Upmold provides its customers to help minimize tooling costs and to help expedite the manufacturing process;this is a key step ,we should analyse carefully following our checking list that Upmold’s DFM includes below processes,please watch video to learn more details
Part size & weight analysis
Moldbase steel and spec
Injection machine size
Sink mark analysis
Engraving and Aspect spec
parting line analysis
Insert line analysis
Slide and retractor lines
Gate location and size

Mold Flow Analysis for Mold design
Watch Our Simple Report Sample
Moldflow analysis is a helpful simulation for mold design concept evaluated and optimized the design options,that guarantees us to build a high quality plastic injection mold successfully .through the simulation ,we can find out the best gate location ,cycle time simulation analysis, cooling checking, sink marks preventing ,welding line improving ,venting designing and injection parameter primary analysis;that is indispensable .
At this step ,Upmold uses the lasted engineer software to build the 2D or 3D mold structure and simulate that it is right and capable ;our designer should follow the ultimate confirmed DFM report to build mold structure,and assemble mold components that they are the customer’s mold standard .
Generally,We use these engineer softwares to build a model as bellow:
Pro-Engineer for product design model.
Unigraphics NX for3D mold design model.
Auto CAD for 2D mold design .
Moldflow for moldflow analysis and optimized simulation.
