Product & Tool Design

Product & Tool Design

Your journey begins with a technical review with our Program Management, Design and Engineering teams to confirm your design specifications, material selections, product functionality, aesthetics, packaging, critical control points and specific customer requirements. If you don’t have access to a technical drawing, we have the capability to 3D scan your part to generate your drawing or we can model your product on our software.

Material

We are material experts and can help you choose the perfect material for your product and its application. We have excellent partnerships with our raw materials suppliers and if you are seeking something a little unusual, we can help. We usually mould in ABS, PP, PET, TPE, POM, HDPE and recycled plastics.

Design For Manufacture

We will look at the manufacturability of your product considering all tool design aspects including wall thickness, tolerances, draft angles, ribs, gates, runners, undercuts and bosses. We will examine whether your product requires a cold sprue or can it be designed with a hot runner, eliminating sprue and runner waste.

Tool Design

When designing of your tool commences, we offer mould flow analysis to predict how plastic will flow within the tool cavity, identifying fill performance and warpage issues. We highly recommended this analysis for complex designs with tight tolerances, as it saves on time and money and it may reduce quality and manufacturing issues once in full scale production.
