corbel, layer, button?
Explanation:
Courge is another word for corbel ( a protruding architectural feature, named for a raven's beak).

I guess these terms describe the kind of feature produced by the injection process: an elongated one (courge), a flat one (nappe), a very small one like a button (pinpoint).

I haven't looked under injection moulding in "Google"--I assume you already did.

Good luck!

Try \"injection molding\" + \"corbel\" etc. in Google! It works.

Many thanks. I did search through Yahoo with "injection courge" and "injection mold" but, as I'm not a specialist, it wasn't really very understandable.
