How To Find The Best Rapid Tooling Partner?

Rapid tooling is a complicated business and you want to make sure that you are able to find someone who is reliable and value for money. On top of this, there are hundreds of companies offering similar services and prices located throughout the world. Here, we discuss what is important to look for in a moulding partner and the questions you should ask before agreeing to commence a project.

1.) Price: Ensuring that the price you are paying for the mould is both reasonable and good value are obviously important aspects of each project. It is generally the case that moulding operations in China are perceived to have a lower cost than companies operating in Europe, Japan and the U.S. While this is usually the case, it is always prudent to ensure that you are happy with not only the price, but also the quality of the mould and, of course, the final product produced. Here at NICE Rapid, we ensure that our prices are competitive and our service excellent. Can you find cheaper? Probably. Can you find a better end product and more attentive customer service? We don’t think so!

2.) Quality: Ensuring that the mould you have made is a high quality item is extremely important. The mould IS your product and from how it is manufactured to the way it is produced, these all have a bearing on the final product you sell to your customers. As we have discussed, price is an important consideration, but the advice from the rapid tooling engineers and project managers all goes into the final quality of your products. Our staff have many years’ experience in the project management and rapid tooling fields – we are able to provide you with advice prior to mould manufacture, in order for your project to run as smoothly and cost effectively as possible.

3.) Reassurance: Searching Google to find a moulding partner for your next project is usually the first step in the production process. However, just as we wouldn’t complete any important purchase over the internet without checking out the company first, this is the same for finding a successful moulding partner. Ask lots of questions and ensure that you are happy with the company before agreeing to anything. Reliable and reputable companies, such as NICE Rapid, will have no problem in providing you with references for their work, pictures of their machinery and factory and samples of their work for you to peruse before you agree to work with them. Any company who you do not feel comfortable with and is reticent to answer your questions is likely not up to the job. Please feel free to contact our staff at any time, whether it’s for an informal chat or technical information on starting your next tooling project.

Finally, we think that the most important aspects of any business relationship are honesty and trust. At NICE Rapid, we are happy to sign any confidentiality agreements that you require and hope that our open and friendly way of doing business is a refreshing change from what you might expect from a Chinese company. Try us and we promise you will like us!
