We had a successful show at NPE2012 in the US. The show has attracted more new potential customers for Tung Lee mainly with interests in high precision plastic export tooling and production molding parts.
The selection of an injection molding supplier who doesn't match your ambitions can trigger unexpected and safety cost increase, production delay, missed opportunities and most important poor product quality that may lead to a loss of customers!
A potential supplier is one which can insure a good technical fit for your business and long term sound organization. Finding one who meets your all objectives is not hard but it does take some work and investigation. A successful long term relationship needs to be built rather than focus only on the lowest quote.
1. Think about your objectives
Is time to market a critical driver of success ? Are you replacing an existing product ? Does your
new product require many new toolings ?
Start with a list of objectives for searching your injection molding supplier.
2. Think about your ideal supplier
What are your expectations ? Do they work with professional engineering team for manufacturing?
Do they work on low volume production ? Do you want your supplier to have in house tooling ?
