MTEC 7042 - Plastic Product Design

Manufacturing Part-time Studies Course

School of Energy

Course Details

This course focuses on the design of individual parts that go into making a product and how those parts are assembled into a product. The course begins by discussing the criteria for selection of the plastic material, how to analyse the requirements and the environment the product will be used in. Design guidelines for various processes are reviewed and applied in design exercises. Other aspects of the design such as assembly methods and surface finishing and texturing are reviewed. Part drawings are prepared in sufficient detail to work with molders and toolmakers, and guidelines for effective communication with venders are discussed.
