Step 1 – Design drawing and Evaluation
The project start with design drawing, customer can provide us with 3D drawing(.stp), our professional engineers will study if your design is good to realize it, if not we will provide suggestions. or we can help draw if you don’t have 3D file.
After confirm the details of design drawings, we will get onto the project, we will hold meetings to make a whole plan and procedure ,we discuss the problem we might meet during this project, such as Flash,Scratch, Aberration etc.then we take precautions, also a time schedule will be given to the customer when we decided it.
Step 2 -Molds
Before we open a mold, our engineers will switch 3D files into files for the molds, and We need preparing the materials like imported steel materials, we normally choose S136/NAK80/8407/SKD61, based on which material for customer’s requirement on molds and product structure once all preparation ready , our experienced engineers will start opening molds as plan, normally take in 15-25 days depends on product structure.
Step 3- Measurement
After complete molds, our engineers need use 3D/2D measurement machines to test the data of molds if all data is in the range of tolerance 0.01mm, we will modify it if out of the range, this is very important steps, that will lead to the phone case if perfect.
Step 4 – Samples
When the mold is ready, samples will be ready from the mold testing T0, we will check all aspects of this batch of samples, record and solve defaults if they have we will send good samples to customer for confirmation, and need customer sign back a golden sample, after that we will start to arrange mass-prodcution according to the golden sample.
Step 5 – Mass production
We will be in full capacity at this stage, meanwhile random inspection or full inspection on each step will constantly be done to make sure the quality.
After we finish production, we will clear the cases, and check the products every piece again, and customers can arrange inspector to check the goods based on their SOP.
