What is Design for Manufacturability (DFM)


The purpose of processing design for manufacturability (DFM) is to make a better product at a lower cost. By simplifying, optimizing, and refining the product design, we can shoot down most of the potential issue before running Custom Injection Molding production.

Custom Injection Molding


We need to take these 5 factors into consideration during a DFM:


1.       Design

2.       Material

3.       Process

4.       Compliance/Assembly

5.       Production


Typically, DFM needs to start at the earlier stage of design, well before begin the tooling. Actually, DFM is to challenge the design to see if all the components, sub-system, system, assembly, function meet the expectations. If any other adjustments we can have to make the design more better and cost less. It takes quite some time and effort to go into a DFM.


As a manufacturer, TEAM Rapid offers free DFM tooling service to our customers. We understand how to optimize the design to cut down the tooling lead-time and cost, all these are base on without compromising the application and function. In the past 5 years, we served lots of customers worldwide to lunch their products by Rapid Tooling and Custom Injection Molding service. Want to know more about us? Contact our team at today!
