Design or development of the original concept is probably the most important stage of any product. During this stage choices are made that will impact the product properties, technologies, and costs involved with its manufacturing.

Design for injection molding must include considerations that are specific to this manufacturing process.The product features and material will impact mold design and production efficiency.

In this beginning stage engineers should involve the mold maker who can make suggestions on how to optimize the design when possible in order to simplify the mold, reduce the mold cost and improve its efficency. The tool maker for example might suggest where to core out the product and reduce wall thickness which will save cost in raw materials and reduce cycle times . By simplifying the mold and reducing the weight of the part a smaller machine size might be used , which would imply lower hourly machine rates

Other features that will impact the cost of the molds are listed below:

Side features that will require side cores, splits or other methods to release undercuts or threads
Accuracy and tolerances required
Special fits with other matching products
Surface finish or special textures
Logos and other engravings
Esthetics requirements
Hinges or snap fits

The choice of the material will impact the final production cost of the product.
Some of the variables to consider when selecting the material are listed below:

Material typical shrink rates; in some materials shrink can be different for the flow direction and for the direction at right angle to it. This can create issues with part warping or distorsion.
Part shape (For long and narrow parts it is better to choose low shrink materials when possible).
Agency requirements such as UL or FDA.
Type of environment to which the final product will be exposed. Some plastic materials behave better then others when exposed to chemicals. In some instances resistance to UV rays might be a requirement.
Flame retardancy requirements. There are different levels of flame retardancy. Some materials are naturally flame retardant while others will require additives to comply with the requirements.
Some materials such as PVC will develop corrosive gas during production and not every injection molder is set up for it.
Hydroscopic resins will require the extra step of drying
Some resins must be stored in climate controlled environments, or may have a  short shelf life. Injection mold companies warehouse is climate controlled. Each lot is assigned a date code which allows inventory control.
All resins have minimum order quantities. Consult with Accurate to selec the one that best fit your needs.
The same product can be molded quicker with some materials then others.
Exotic materials can be very expensive and difficult to find.
When possible specifying a generic grade will alllow to selec materials from a variety of suppliers and possibly reduce the cost and lead time.

And for your recurring parts needs, remember to take advantage of our Stocking Program, which allows you the flexibility of maintaining parts continuously in stock, without invoicing you until the parts are shipped. This program keeps your most frequently used parts ready for delivery when you need them, Since certain replacement parts are requested more often than others, we have developed several specialized parts packages tailored to your injection molding machines.
