Design for Manufacturing (DFM) is critical throughout the design and development process, particularly when making the leap from prototype to production manufacturing. DFM seeks to exploit every efficiency available through optimizing product design for its intended manufacturing process.

It’s important to implement DFM early in the product development lifecycle to achieve optimal efficiency, productivity, and repeatability of injection molding for plastics, metals (MIM), and ceramics (CIM).

As injection molding experts, PTI excels in the discipline of DFM and encourages our clients to involve us early in the design process to realize the full potential of our precision Polymer, MIM, and CIM manufacturing processes.
