Determining the thickness of parts is an important task in injection-molded plastic part design. In general, the thicknesses of parts should be minimized so that less material is used and at the same time the relevant quality requirements are also met. There are already a number of methods for thickness optimization in the area of structural optimization, where strength, stability, deformation, etc., are the primary concerns. In contrast to this, very little work has been done on thickness optimization that is oriented to part moldability and other molding-quality requirements. Without molding-quality-oriented thickness optimization, the plastic-part design will result in either a waste of material or poor molding qualities. As a first step to tackle this problem, this paper attempts to seek minimized part thicknesses by employing a Moldflow simulation based method. Briefly, it consists of an automated, iterative process of changing the part thicknesses, conducting a Moldflow simulation, retrieving the simulation results to assess the specified molding-quality criteria, until the design objectives are met. A route for part-thickness change is proposed, which is governed by the respective methods under several different situations. Three convergence criteria are proposed. A software prototype implementing the methodology was developed and presented. To illustrate the methodology as well as the software, a design case is also studied. The paper shows that the proposed methods are applicable to the molding-quality-oriented part-thickness minimization.
