Wall Thickness

Uniform wall thickness is critical in part design for an injection molded part. Non-uniform wall thickness causes dimensional control problems, warpage and other part integrity issues.

Production techniques on thin walls become quite complicated. For efficient, high volume production, we recommend a minimum wall thickness of 0.025 – 0.030 (0.635 – 0.762mm) on small parts, 0.040 – 0.050 (1.02 – 1.27mm) on larger parts.
