What’ the important issues for this order?
Expertise in mould and product solution
Q. I have an idea for a new product, but not sure if it can be manufactured. Can you help?
A. Yes! We are always happy to work with potential customers to evaluate the technical feasibility
of your idea or design and we can advise on materials, tooling and likely set-up costs.
Q. My custom products have already been developed on CAD. Can you use the drawings?
A. Yes! DWG, DXF, IGES, Solidworks and Rhino files can all be used to generate quotes,
models and mould tools – this can save time and money in producing your parts.
Q. Can I test my idea/product before committing to mould tool manufacture?
A. Yes, we can use CAD drawings to make models for design and functional evaluations.
Q. What type of plastic material is best for my design/product?
A. Materials selection depends on the application of your design and the environment in which it will function.
We will be happy to discuss the alternatives and suggest the best material.
Q. What type of mould tool do I need?
A. Mould tools can be either single cavity (one part at a time) or multi-cavity (2,4, 8 or 16 parts at a time).
Single cavity tools are generally used for small quantities, up to 10,000 parts per year whereas multi-cavity tools are for larger quantities.
We can look at your projected annual requirements and recommend which would be best for you.
Q. I’ve decided to go ahead with my project. How long will it take to get my parts?
A. It can take 3-5 weeks to have the mould tool manufactured depending on the part’s complexity and
the number of impressions (single or multi). After we have received final approval by you of the new tool,
you can expect delivery of parts within 3-5 days.
