Design and Engineering
Available from Custom Mold & Design
Design for Manufacturability (DFM) – Custom Mold & Design’s team of engineers are readily available to work with your team to provide best-in-class component design support.
We begin this process by understanding your product requirements and how this information translates into appropriate part design changes. Subtle alterations can make the difference between molding success and a project that takes months to ‘develop’.
Speed to market is always key… but be wary of those manufacturers that do not ask for or suggest changes in the design.
Higher quality input leads to a higher quality outcome – teamwork is a crucial component of effective DFM.
In nearly every project, companies focus on mold delivery lead times as the pacing item. The truth of the matter is better DFM in the beginning of a project leads to a shorter overall project timeline.
The key to successful project execution and cost containment / minimization is the early involvement of the Custom Mold design team (e.g.; prognostic design consideration and development leads to the creation of robust processes).
Our engineering software systems include: Pro/Engineer, Solidworks, Solid Edge, Moldflow, CADKEY, and MasterCam.
Moldflow – Custom Mold & Design is well versed in the advanced usage of Moldflow software and techniques.
Tooling Design and Fabrication - Whether you want to participate in the mold design process or just get parts, Custom Mold & Design welcomes you as an integral part of the team.
