When you need custom parts and tools it is important to work with a company that specialises in the manufacture of parts and prototypes at affordable costs. Good companies should have several methods to choose from for manufacture and the experience to select the most project suitable, cost effective and reliable one. You also need to consider if they can deliver on time.
New parts and assemblies are crucial in manufacturing, engineering, marketing in just about every industry there is. You need to be able to rely on your vendor and have peace of mind the products they create are going to be reliable, functional and meet your or your customers’ expectations. There are several manufacturing methods used in making prototypes like CNC machining, 3D printing and rapid injection molding.
One of the benefits of rapid injection molding process is that it is cheap, effective and quick for both low and medium quantity production runs. Parts and prototypes are built quickly allowing you to validate design and functionality before going to production full production or get parts to market fast. Tools are built quickly based on the CAD drawings and designs provided by the client. The key to a successful product generation is the ability to get it right when you go to the production stage but also to have a solid quality control team performing inspections. The purpose of this group is to look over random products and then conduct a final evaluation before the items are shipped out.
If the company you currently work with does not do this or they are not effective then you need to switch because this is how recalls happen. Cheap injection molding can be accomplished and is an ideal method to use during the early stages of a project when you may need to make adjustments and have several runs conducted. Take advantage of quality prototype companies that have earned their ISO rating for quality and are known internationally as the best in the business. This will help to ensure that your company always has the parts and tools that they need to get the job done!
