The project consists of the redesign of a collector, CAD development and FEM calculations.

The following modifications were proposed in the redesign:

  • The need to reduce the volume of plastic in certain areas to avoid the shrinkage effect.
  • Change the shape of the “rib” (offset to the inside diameter) to add steel in the cavity to reduce the volume.
  • Increase the thickness along with the injection, to avoid flow restriction and different flow velocities, which can cause weld lines in unexpected places.
  • Thickness increase to reduce injection flow restriction caused by uneven thickness.
