Lesson 3: Development Strategy

Once we’ve prepared the molding machine and peripheral devices in addition to setting up the initial mold, injection unit, and ejector movements, it’s time to begin process development. This lesson focuses on developing and executing a process development strategy.

In this lesson you will learn: the importance of performing a short shot study; other important pre-process development steps; and a step-by-step guide to developing and executing a process development strategy.
