DDSP Design

Learn how to ensure your plastic parts are of a high quality and manufacturable. This module explores the design rules that contribute to good part design for plastics from both a manufacturing and an environmental perspective. Design for more advanced manufacturing techniques is examined. Includes good tool design, prototyping, simulation and 3D printing.

Objectives ……

  • Learn the basic part design ‘rules’ for plastics and identify key considerations for effective design for manufacture and assembly.
  • Learn the process of selecting materials and additives for your design
  • Examine advanced manufacturing techniques including in-mold decoration, co-moulding, co-injection and gas/water injection
  • Understand the basics of tooling including design features, ejection and gating
  • Explore 3D printing, prototyping and CAE simulation.
  • Understand design for the environment considerations

Date …………… Semester 1: DDSP Design           Thursday 13th & Friday 14th June 2024  

Venue ……….… Ellerslie Event Centre, Greenlane, Auckland

Audience …….... This module is suitable for those in plastics design, operational, production or technical sales roles within the plastics industry or those who specify the use of plastics materials for their organisation.
