Not all injection molding companies are created equal and, in some cases, choosing the wrong injection molding company can lead to excessive costs, low-quality parts and prototypes, and worst of all, lost profits.
By taking a little extra time to really do your research, you can avoid the frustration of dealing with an unreliable company and instead build a relationship with an injection molder who can provide you with exceptional service for years to come. We recommend you ask a few simple questions before choosing anu injection molder, so you can rest assured you’ve made the best decision possible.
What kind of service can I expect?
Working with an injection molder is about more than just the finished product, it’s about the quality of your experience as a customer. Even if you’re happy with the product, it’s not worth it to deal with the frustration of having insufficient support from your service provider. It’s important to establish whether an injection molder prioritizes customer service and communication before you agree to do business with them.
How much experience do you have?
Experience is an important thing to consider when you’re looking for any kind of service provider. The more experience an injection molder has, the more able they will be to handle a wide variety of projects and effectively handle obstacles as they arise.
What are your standards of quality?
A good injection molder will know how to effectively balance the efficiency of the manufacturing process and the quality of the finished product. When an injection molder cuts corners in the interest of saving time or money, it can leave you with a low-quality product that doesn’t work well for its intended application.
Do you have references?
One of the best ways to select a service provider is to contact references and check out reviews online. Getting some insight into the personal experience of former customers can give you a much better idea about what you can expect from an injection molding company.
Will you be able to provide additional services down the road?
If you have a growing business, it’s likely that your injection molding needs will also grow over the years. Find out more about the capabilities of your injection molder to determine whether they will be able to assist you with other projects and help you ramp up to higher volumes in the future.
