Our experienced designers will evaluate your product from an ease of manufacture perspective and challenge those areas that may benefit from being simplified. When we review your part we consider the complexity and type of Mould Tool that will achieve a high level of repeatability.
Your injection moulder should be involved at the earliest stage to ensure the part is suitably designed for the moulding process, meets the project specification and takes in to account key design elements. It is important that your design is protected and we would recommend a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is in place.
