3D Data/Drawing

To quickly and accurately calculate the price of producing a tool, we must have the 3D data* of the part. In addition, we need a drawing or an exact description of the part function to determine tolerances. Should an order be placed, we will require this detailed information and, if possible, any connection parts for functional tests.

If only drawings or sketches are available, we can only estimate the price of carrying out the project. In special cases, we could make a quotation by reviewing existing sample parts. We would be pleased to generate 3D data from drawings for you, if necessary.

* If possible, please provide 3D data of the part in one of these formats: step, stl, VDA, IGS, Catia. We can handle other formats upon request.

Requested Material

We can produce parts from all thermoplastic materials.

If you have not yet made a final decision as to which material should be used for your project, we can certainly help you make a selection.

Should you have already selected a specific material to use, we require the following information:

  • Material: e.g., PA6.6, POM, ABS
  • Material Additives: e.g., 30% Glass Fiber Content, 15% Glass Beads, Talcum-Reinforced, PTFE
  • Color: e.g., RAL-Tones, Master Batch No.

Should you require a specific material, we would ask that you provide the exact brand name, e.g., Ultramid A3WG6, Hostacom, Bayblend T45

Since material prices can vary significantly, the prices we quote for parts typically exclude the cost of materials. Many of our customers stock materials themselves which they make available to us for their projects. Of course materials can be ordered for customers, at the same price we pay, plus a minor handling fee.

Required Quantity

How many parts do you need? Will you require only a few parts as prototypes for experimental purposes or are you considering the production of a small series? With comprehensive information from you, we can prepare a detailed quotation, tailored to the specific job at hand. In our experience, when fewer parts are produced, it is more cost efficient to put inserts into moulds by hand. For larger quantities of parts, we would opt to run a fully-automated process. That way the price per part is more reasonable.

Depending on the material used, we can achieve output quantities from 1,000 to 50,000 parts. But we are certainly in position to produce far more parts. Projects involving high-volume production should be coordinated in the earliest stages, so that the tooling inserts are designed for durability.

Delivery Date Target

Perhaps the most important information we require to provide a detailed quotation: PART QUANTITY AND DELIVERY DATE TARGET. Generally we require one to four weeks to produce simple tools, somewhat longer for more complex assemblies.

In particularly urgent cases, we can meet virtually any tight deadline. Of course, extremely short delivery times may require overtime staffing or even night shifts. These special charges would be listed separately in our quotation.

Under normal circumstances, we process enquiries within 24 hours. If your request is pressing, please mark the enquiry as “urgent”. Of course, all enquiries are treated confidentially. Detailed information on confidentiality and data security can be found here.
