Design for Manufacturability

After brainstorming the right solution for our client’s process or product challenges, we have to make sure of the feasibility of the solution. Our in-house thermoplastic engineering team applies “design for manufacturability” principles to determine whether the end result can be manufactured efficiently based on established specifications while being overall cost-effective. With our design for manufacturability and lean manufacturing methods, we determine the appropriate end result that will be functional, innovative, and aligned with your manufacturing production goals.

Holistic Design Process

Our streamlined process begins with information gathering and extends through concept development, material choice, mold design, process control, product qualification and production—even in-mold decorating. Our designers and engineers are involved in every step of plastic part engineering process, from CAD design to prototyping. This method helps us avoid costly changes to product design and injection mold tooling. In addition, we can identify potential problems before they affect costs or quality, which will help lower material waste, minimize unproductive processes and eliminate other inefficiencies.

Latest Tools & Techniques

We transform your ideas into practical, manufacturing-ready solutions. Our company uses the latest plastic design tools, technologies, and techniques:

  • Creo & SolidWorks®CAD systems
  • Creo Mechanica®
  • Mold fill, cool and warp, simulation and analysis
  • Mold, fixture and gage design
  • Draft and shutoff checks
  • Product cost and feasibility studies

IVP’s design processes help move our client’s project in the right direction to obtain the desired end results. We are here for you when the engineering and design stages are holding back your operational productivity.
