We need the following information:
• 2D& 3D files
• Tooling life/Estimated annual usage parts
• Part material
Yes, we can sign the NDA before cooperation, so for sure we will keep them well and not release them to the third party without your permission.
Frist Trial Shotting Samples: normally we would provide our clients 10~20 shots samples.
Typically for Mould: T/T, 40% Deposit with P.O., 30% upon First Trial Sample, 30% prior to shipment; Part molding: 50% after PO confirmed, 50% after production finished.
We usually send the progress schedule weekly with pictures or videos.
Depending on size and complexity, simple molds can be completed in two weeks or less. The typical lead time is between 4-6 weeks, but some complex parts could take two months to design and manufacture the tool.
Virtually all thermoplastics are available on the market.
Yes, we routinely perform insert molding. We have designs calling for just a few to as many as 2000 inserts placed in the mold prior to the shot.
The number of plastic parts produced by a plastic injection mold can vary from several thousand to several million units. The main factors are as follows:
• The type of steel (aluminum, steel, etc.)
• The type of plastics (PP, PE, ABS, reinforced or not reinforced the material, etc.)
• The quality of the press
Thus, the lifetime of the injection mold depends on its quality and the materials used during its manufacture.
Yes, we do offer prototype tooling.
• Manufacturing time,
• The number of impressions: the simpler the design of the injection mold, the lower the price.
• The type of material used to make the injection mold. This depends in particular on the number of parts to be produced. In general, aluminum will be cheaper than steel.
• The type of injection required.
• The size and complexity of the part being molded
• The cost of materials
Overmolding is a unique injection molding process that results in a seamless combination of multiple materials into a single part or product. It typically includes a rigid, plastic-base component overlaid with a thin, pliable, rubber-like thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) exterior layer or other materials using either a single-shot (insert molding) or two-shot (multiple-shot molding) technique
Insert molding is a combination of metal and/or other plastics into a single unit.
