Concerns on selecting an injection mold maker in China?
Hi all, if you are a seller, do you know what are the customer’s mostly concern aspects on selecting an injection mold maker in China?
If you are a buyer, how do you select a reliable mold maker in China?
Any sharing will be highly appreciated. I think it will be interesting and useful to know your opions, to “exchange apples”~~
Well, there are couples of things to check:
* Does the company really exist? (no joke...)
* Does the company is a trading or a manufacturer?
* Do they have references? If yes, are they willing to share some of them with us?
* Which kind of products are they specialized in (I do not believe in guys who can do "everything, no problem")?
* Which kind of production tools do they have?
* Which kind of measurement tool and gauges do they have?
* How often those tools are checked? By who? Do they have certificates?
* How the workshop is organized? Can you see clearly inside? Do the workers are trained or are they just non-qualified people working around? Do they know the tools they are supposed to use? Do they have draing on their station?
* Where does the steel come from (local or imported)? Are they able to provide material certificates?
* Do they test moulds? If yes how? Which kind of machine? ...
List is non exhaustive, but that's the few things pop to my mind.
Well,it depends on your products. It is critical whether the maker has an experience on the products which are similar with yours.
1.Who will follow up the project after getting my P.O ? How's his/ her communication ability?
2.How can I keep up to mold build progress? (That's important especially when you are not in the same location)
3.How about their performance on the service? What if I have any question? Any complaints?
4.How is the mold shop different than all the other molders and mold makers in China?
5.How does the mold shop insure consistent quality?
6.What is the mold shop that makes it more dependable than others?
I believe there are more questions a buyer will think about. And I would like to see more good idea from more guys ~~
