Our extensive tooling
background give us the ability to concurrently design functional
as well as stylish products without taking our eyes off the
question "How will this product be manufactured and assembled? Today's
markets require innovative and creative solutions to stay
competitive. Inzero Design has provided product designs that
have raised the bar for quality and reliability while lowering
assembly and manufacturing costs.
A recent trend is to
develop and design products knowing that they will be manufactured
over seas. We know that clients want quality. If you are
planning to send something overseas, it's best to fully design
and prototype products before you ship that project to an overseas
manufacturers. Inzero design is proud to say that we have
designed a number of products currently for sale at Home Depot and
Lowes that are all manufactured
Over the years Inzero Design has successfully developed products
in a variety of materials: plastic, metal, wood, fiberglass…
Whatever your medium, quality design work will reduce the overall
costs in bringing your product to market.
Inzero Design has specialized
designing and developing parts made of plastic. From housings,
enclosures, containers and handles to complex working assemblies,
Inzero Design has tackled some of the most complex and challenging
projects the plastics industry has to offer. Call us in on
your next project. We will happily assist your current
engineering staff in upping the quality or reliability of your
product while hopefully lower its production costs.
Do you design your own plastic
parts? Sometimes having those parts or assemblies reviewed
by an outside professional can greatly enhance your bottom line.
Ask yourself these questions..
- Do you design latch and snap
features into your products? Is tooling for these products
substantially higher? Costs
for specialty features need not balloon tooling prices.
Sometimes small changes in size shape or location can ease
construction complications, lowering tool prices, shorten lead
times and decrease maintenance costs.
- Are you frequently told that
your part is drafted the wrong way or that draft is needed?
Does your tooling source do this for you only to find later that
the molded part does not look or function the way you intended?
Drafting products correctly before tooling
begins can save you from these type of issues. Also,
correct placement of draft in advance can simplify tool parting
lines, hence lowering production costs and maintenance.
- Have you had filling issues,
splay, sinks or flow marks across esthetic visual surfaces?
Do you know how your part was going to fill when you specified
gate location to your tooling source or are you letting them
choose the location? Gate location,
Cooling, ribbing, wall thicknesses all matter.
Before you send that part out know what your going to get back.
- Do your parts have "living
hinges?" Does the hinge last? Do you have
filling issues across the hinge? Are you having molding
issues with the rest of the part because of the hinge? Issues
such as these can be easily resolve during the part development
- Designing a round part
or square cover that ends up oval or obtuse?
Warping issues plague many parts.
Proper mold cooling, wall thickness, ribs or features can
dramatically change how parts are produced. Achieving
round or square parts is not just a tooling issue.
- Do your parts fit together
the way you intended first time around? If not, are you
confronted with outrageous tooling cost for product changes?
There are many factors that can effect the
quality of a plastic part. Many times slips, fits and
functioning features need adjusting. Planning ahead and
specifying tooling to accommodate these features adjustments can
be beneficial to any successful projects completion.
- Making great functional
parts economically that just don't seem to capture sales?
Maybe those parts are just ugly.
Esthetics matter, stylish parts sell. In this age of
CAD/CAM there is no reason you can't have beautiful, visually
appealing products without soaring tooling costs. There
are lots of things that can be done to products to make them
more ergonomic or pleasing to the eye without greatly inflating
Inzero Design offers a comprehensive product review service.
We can evaluate your part or assembly of parts for any number of
specifications. We can work with your staff in suggesting
any number of changes that will enhance your projects success, or
we can make the adjustments for your review. In either case
putting your best foot forward always help reaching your goal
