We collaborate with our customers up front to address all areas of design, quality, cost and manufacturability before mold design begins. This allows for compression of lead time to production after initial sampling and ensures project success.
PTA performs full Design for Manufacturability (DFM) review on all projects awarded. All aspects of part design, mold design, and on-going manufacturing are reviewed. The DFM also includes a review of the wall thickness, mold steel conditions, mold actions, draft angles, gate locations, cost drivers and a complete flow analysis.
