There are many great ideas that could make amazing impacts on various industries that never see the light of day. Often this is due to a lack of engineering experience and specific knowledge and expertise on how to turn a groundbreaking idea into a physical product that works.
When companies have an idea for an innovative product or even an enhancement of a current product, working with a company specializing in industrial product design should be a priority. It is important to make sure to choose the right design service with the tips below to make sure you cover the basics and beyond.
Consulting on the Design or Full Service?
Some industrial product design firms work more like a consulting firm. They will provide support, recommendations, evaluations, analysis and perhaps even run virtual tests on the computer models developed.
Other companies will provide these same services, plus they have the ability to move from the design phase into producing an injection mold and starting production. The second type of service is ideal when getting the product from idea to market as quickly as possible is essential.
Real World Experience With the Industry
The top industrial product design services for injection, dip or blow molding always use engineers and design teams with real world experience. These are professionals that have worked in the injection molding industry for years and have remained on top of the latest technology, materials, and practices in use.
Not only will this enhance the project and avoid common problems that people without experience in injection molding may easily overlook, but it also assists in streamlining the costs of the project. In some cases, molding may not even be the best option with extrusion possibly offering a lower cost of production and a superior end product.
