When transitioning from prototype to production, many manufacturing methods necessitate subtle alterations in the design to promote satisfactory results. Injection moulding in particular carries with it an exhaustive list of design requirements such as Draft angles, ribs and spans. These requirements aren’t often known at early design stages and can often be unique to the exact production machine used. It’s critical to identify Design for Manufacture specifics early in the process to avoid costly revisions that can lead to significant delays in the design and production lifecycle.
By working with a range of in-house and carefully managed external manufacturing partners, our engineers quickly identify areas for modification and implement precise changes without altering the aesthetics or functionality of your designs. We communicate directly with your production manufacturer of choice and liaise with their operators and design engineers applying alterations to specification ensuring an uninterrupted transition from start to finish.
