Hello ladies and gentlemen,see my question above, your professional comments and suggestions will be much more appreciated.
The difference of making mold with Metric and imperial standard?
Now We are handing 3 set molds project for one of American companies. They usually make molds for automotive parts...Now they outsource these mold to our company,we are located in Dongguan,China. Cuz these parts has been put into large production,they need open extra molds for the same products.That means they have existing molds,our company design the molds using Metric standard,but what will happened,the parts will be little different with currently products..? What's more,it will leads many components should be provided by our client,??
Do you guys have ever met such familiar situation?Is it Ok for you to accept 2 standard ？？

Have you talked to your customer about the molds being metric? You need to meet your customers expectations and specifications, if they are metric that is what they want.Also are you sure the original molds are not metric, most automotive molds/products are metric.

Hi Jerry,tks for your professional comment and suggestion,the existing molds were built with English unit measured,Actually the most important thing I'm worrying that if build these molds using metric,any tolerance and appearance will be different with currently parts?
