When your prototype has to be Glass Filled Nylon


When your prototype has to be Glass Filled Nylon
Challenge:

Prototypes are required for product testing and 3D printed parts may not be adequate. In some requirements, prototypes must be made from the production material, in this case glass filled nylon. Part geometry must be the same as the final production parts so that the test results are valid. Actual production material for prototype testing is needed before commitment to high volume injection molds.

Tired of delays in time to market from prototyping to having parts approved for production?


Bridge Tooling - One tool 3 Destinations

For the majority of our customers the prototyping phase is only the beginning of the journey towards production.  A word of caution if you are using aluminum tooling (soft tooling) for your prototypes then the journey starts anew once you head into the development of “hard tooling”.  However, if you had used SICAM’s Bridge Tooling the move towards production is a smooth transition.

In a perfect world, every mold would be built and the first shots would be ready for production. Yet as anyone who has designed products, built tooling or purchased molded parts knows it is never that simple. Changes are going to occur during at some point and modifications will be required.
