Injection moulding process is one of the common processes to produce plastic parts from simple to complicated parts. This paper focuses on the injection process analysis of a 25 tooth spur gear. Three runner system are proposed for the gear and each system will be analysed using Autodesk Simulation Moldflow Advisor. The most suitable design will then be chosen based on the results obtained from the simulation. The design undergoes cooling quality, sink mark, fill + pack, and warp analysis. Based on these analyses, Design 1 gave the better results compared to Design 2 and 3. From there, Design 1 runner system is chosen for the injection moulding mould which will be fabricated later in the research.
