Product & Tool Trials
The trialling stage of a development project is an essential element of the evaluation process as you will receive finished components in the materials that have been specified. This offers a huge advantage over the 3D Print process as you can trial various materials and be provided with samples that are equivalent to the final production parts.
Your product trials will be completed utilising the tooling solution of choice for your project and be carried out by our experienced Mould Technicians. They are fully supported by our Toolmakers who will have manufactured the mould tool on site. The customer requirement will be fully detailed to ensure continuity of information flow and that all parties fully understand what is trying to be achieved from the trial.
During the trial stage our Technicians will look to optimise the conditions with a full evaluation of the process. Components will be assessed by our quality department to ensure they meet the standard required. On completion of the trial samples together with a First Article Inspection Report will be submitted for your own assessment.
The key factors of a Product Trial….
- Completed from in-house tooling solutions
- Experienced Mould Technicians
- Process optimisation
- Full in-house and customer liaison
- Ability to trial alternative materials
- First article Inspection Reports
- CMM capability
- Samples submitted for customer review
It is important that we fully understand what you are trying to achieve from the development process and be mindful of the full production requirements even at this early stage. This will ensure that the trial process can provide the optimum assistance in influencing any decisions made with regard to your own unique project.
