Here are a few tips you can easily implement to help to cut your development by up to 50% from conventional manufacturing.
- Utilize a Manufacturability Analysis – If Injection Molding is the right manufacturing process for your project, you can limit the amount of redesign work by quickly addressing problematic areas in your part while expediting the production process.
- Get a fast quote– With speed to market being a critical factor in a successful project, there’s almost no excuse to have to wait days or weeks to get a quote. Make sure your preferred vendor can turn your quote around in under a day. It will instantly shave days off your development cycle.
- Use a domestic supplier – It’s true! Sourcing from within the US is just faster and more reliable. Due to the relative close proximity and no language barrier, you will get almost immediate responses to questions or concerns, shipping times will be faster and more reliable and you won’t have to worry about quality or copyright issues.
