Part Design - Assembly of Components


This seminar is offered to engineers and designers involved in the design of injection molded components. This course provides an overview of various assembly methods of plastic to plastic components, and plastic to metal components. The techniques, which will be covered, are snap-fits, self threading fasteners, welding, and press-fitting. Advantages and limitations of each will be discussed in detail, as well as several examples with actual design calculations. This seminar will help educate the engineer/designer, which assembly method to use for their particular application, and allow them to design a cost effective and efficient joint the first time.
