Dedicated NPI Engineer Support
Your Link Between Sales, Design and Manufacturing.
Once a tooling order has been placed, our NPI personnel act as your link between sales, design and manufacturing. At the point of tooling order and CAD sign-off the NPI team is drafted in to carry out feasibility and DFM (Designed for manufacturability) studies to ensure the product designed works with our equipment and process in order to weight relief parts to reduce raw material usage where possible and achieve best quality.
CAD data is scrutinised looking at fit and function with the client and if has any concerns are raised about elements of the tooling process these can be ironed out early. We evaluate the CAD drawings readiness to be manufactured; is it feasible, and if not, we recommend changes that are needed.
Once tooling is delivered trialling can start, first offs are reviewed with QA (Quality Assurance) team who carefully look over mouldings taking note of critical measurement data to ensure general tolerances according to material properties.
The ultimate aim is complete PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) and get sign off.
Steps to success
Your 4-step development journey
Having identified your must have criteria we review any initial drawings or CAD files to ensure they can be tooled and moulded on our machinery.
Together we collaborate and share ideas, we explore initial ideas in more depth and make recommendations with a fresh set of eyes as we develop a concept.
Evaluate and validate
We scrutinise initial prototype parts and test against design criteria to ensure part performance aligns with customer expectations.
Your approved parts progress to tooling phase, first offs are run and approved prior to full production run and product delivery.
