Undercut Part Design for Injection Molding

2021-08-06T15:40:15+00:00August 30, 2019|Tags: , , , , , |

Undercuts are part features that can complicate the ejection of injection molded parts. Examples of these protrusions and indentations include locking tabs, slots for switches, and screw threads. When a straight-pull mold is released, undercuts can interfere with the separation of the core and cavity. An injection molder can use additional tooling to facilitate [...]
