Our approach is designed to meet you where you are in your product's life cycle. Whether you're in initial design phases, developing tested designs, or are already manufacturing an existing product, you'll benefit from our industry and engineering experts, state-of-the-art equipment, and a meticulous approach to planning your project.
We will work with you from the beginning to help design in manufacturability, fit and function to create something great.
We’ll help tie up all loose ends and establish a long term plan as we help you ramp up into high volume production.
We’ll explain our process and answer any questions you may have.
First, we work with you to optimize your part design and set you up for success. We’ll consult with you to discover your needs, and diligently review and revise our plans to prepare for production.
Talk with our expert team about your plans, needs, budget and goals.
Our in-house engineers will review your plans to determine the possibilities, including material options, tolerances and features.
Beyond initial manufacturing, what is your long-term plan for the component? Our team can help.
Together, we’ll refine your design as needed for first-run estimates, taking into consideration the long-term production plan.
Based on design updates and prior reviews, we’ll generate an updated, accurate quote.
We won’t just send a quote for your signature. We’ll talk you through it, and find the solution.
We’ll start with a short run to optimize your design and our process for larger volumes.
We’re committed to not just producing your part, but to producing it as efficiently and precisely as possible. Our pre-production phase thoroughly vets your design and ensures all our ducks are in a row for long-term and/or high-volume precision production.
As we move into low-volume production, our in-house engineers ensure everything is in place to scale up production.
Checking the boxes prior to full-scale production includes establishing payment structures, storage and inventory plans, material acquisition plans, and more.
It’s critical to make sure all resources are lined up for production, including materials, personnel, equipment needed, facilities needed, and time required.
Packaging and delivery is a critical step. We’ll develop plans for efficient packaging at high volumes with a focus on protecting your components during shipping - including removal on your end.
We won’t move into full-scale production until everyone is satisfied and we’ve accounted for everything.
Your part has been thoroughly reviewed, planned, prototyped and reviewed some more - it’s time to kick it into high gear! We’ll continue to monitor and optimize your production for the duration of its life, with shipping and delivery designed to meet your needs.
It’s go time! Our careful planning, revising and reviewing process means we’re completely confident to produce your component at full-scale production.
Just because your parts in production doesn’t mean our job is done. Our team is continuously checking our process to ensure resources remain available, and to identify future challenges or optimization opportunities.
Our capabilities are extensive, and we’re driven by innovation. As we learn more about you, we’ll continue identifying ways to help.
We’ll work with you to choose the right schedule, carriers and freight methods to meet your timeline and budget.
