When you make a request at Rompa Group, you want to know when you will receive your plastic products with or without electronics and when you can release them. That is why we always ensure a reliable project planning, which we will communicate to you clearly. The duration of the process? That depends on various factors. We will discuss the four most important ones below.
1. The status of the product design
Do you want to reduce the time to market? In that case, it is a good idea to call upon Rompa as early as possible, and preferably while you are still at the drawing board. We will use our injection moulding expertise simultaneously to help you draft a product design. During the DFM process, we communicate on a regular basis and we will have a critical look at the producibility and the durability of the mould. If necessary, we also consider aesthetic and functional characteristics. Depending on the complexity of the product and the stage at which we are involved, this could save you weeks! Of course, it is also possible to supply us with a finished product design.
2. The complexity of the product
The more complex your product, the more complex the mould. The mould is a unique piece of steel, which is fully adjusted to your product. The design, production and testing of the mould is time-consuming. This process will take longer if sliding constructions are required, for example.
