The Process of Developing Your Idea or Invention into a Plastic Injection Molded Part
MOLDING FINISHED PRODUCT
PHASE ONE: DESIGN
In today's world, it is critical that you have a great looking and functional design for your idea. You cannot sell a light bulb that doesn't look like a light bulb or doesn't work as a light bulb. Our Industrial designers use CAD systems along with years of experience and knowledge to transform your idea into a 3 dimensional computer model. You want to get from an idea or concept to an injection molded plastic product that you can sell, right?
PHASE TWO: PROTOTYPING
A prototype is a real life physical sample of your idea or part. Having a prototype serves two functions. First, having a prototype allows you to test your idea and proves the functionality of your product. Secondly, a prototype allows you to get started on the marketing of your product. It can be used for photographs for the web or brochures, and they give you a physical example of your product to hand to potential customers. East Coast Plastics can take a CAD Model and produce an actual finished part you can hold and use for advanced selling and marketing purposes.
PHASE THREE: TOOLING
It's time to start tooling for production. You now have a proven design and product. Tooling can be one of the most expensive steps in the process. Having a dependable tool builder is essential. East Coast Plastics is one of the most experienced tooling manufacturers in the country. Injection molding tooling is a steel or aluminum block machined with cavities in the shape of your plastic part. Our experts help you through this process to insure high quality parts and the lowest production costs.
PHASE FOUR: MOLDING FINISHED PRODUCT
Molding is the point where your great idea or invention becomes reality. Plastic injection molded parts are relatively inexpensive yet that doesn't discount their importance to you. There are many different materials, all with different properties available to enhance your product. Color choices are endless. A typical run of parts may be as few as a hundred parts or as many as a million. The price of a molded part is a combination of raw material costs plus the time required to mold the plastic part. East Coast Plastics makes millions of parts everyday for hundreds of customers. We know how to take your idea and turn it into revenue for you. You have a team of over 100 individuals taking your product from START to FINISH. WE ARE YOUR SINGLE SOURCE PROVIDER.
