DFM Analysis

The DFM Analysis Service allows product designers to identify and fix any problems that might happen in the manufacturing phase to reduce costs. Depending on various types of manufacturing processes there are set guidelines for DFM practices which help to precisely define various tolerances, rules and common manufacturing checks.

MoldFlow Analysis

MoldFlow provides simulation tools for injection mold design. By iterating molding simulations, our team can optimize product designs, mold designs and prevent multiple modifications to the mold, reducing costs and time. The MoldFlow Analysis include:
  • Plastic material analysis
  • Wall thickness analysis
  • Feed system analysis
  • Processing conditions
  • Filling process
  • Fill time
  • Pressure at V/P switchover
  • Temperature at flow front
  • Sink marks estimate
  • Average volumetric shrinkage
  • Weld lines
  • Defection—X, Y, Z—direction
  • Air traps
  • Injection Pressure & Clamp force
  • Summary

2D & 3D Design

With 2D & 3D design, we can help our clients figure out changes or improvements needed to the product. The software we use for this include:
  • AutoCAD
  • Unigraphics
  • Solidworks
  • Pro/E

Design Approval

TDL will evaluate the mold design and communicate with our clients until both parties approve the mold design. During the mold design phase, the following will be shared with our clients:
  • DFM Analysis report
  • Moldflow Analysis report
  • 2D mold design
  • 3D mold design
