Injection Molding DFM

Design for Manufacturability (DFM) is a set of guidelines and principles that focus on optimizing the design of products or parts to make them easier and more cost-effective to manufacture. When it comes to injection-molded parts, DFM considerations are crucial to ensure the efficient production of high-quality components. Learn More

Urethane Casting DFM

Design for Manufacturability (DFM) considerations for cast urethane parts are essential to ensure that these parts can be efficiently and cost-effectively produced while meeting quality standards. Cast urethane parts are typically made using a polyurethane casting process, such as liquid casting or open casting. Learn More

I just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for turning the SLA’s out for us so quickly. From the start, with the quick response and quote to receiving the final, painted and assembled SLA’s is the reason why we choose Schmit Prototypes. This was a time crucial and difficult project and you guys pulled it off with ease. Our customer was very pleased and extremely impressed with the outcome of the prototypes. Thank you for making us look good. I look forward to working with you guys again.

Last week a large number of Zibites stood in amazement before what we unanimously recognized as a monumental accomplishment…and evidence of extraordinary teamwork! ZIBA Design is highly impressed with Schmit Prototypes and their contribution to the success of this program. Many thanks to you, your exceptional project managers, and all of your staff…we know this program affected each and all of the Schmit team as it did ours. I’m sure you appreciate our reservations at the project’s outset. We were looking for a partner to jump with us into somewhat uncertain waters. You convinced us of your capability and your professional commitment to going the distance…and you delivered as promised. On behalf of all of ZIBA, many, many thanks!

I thought I’d pass along some good news. The prototype device that your company made parts for performed very well at our clients’ medical show. There were no problems at all! I’d like to personally thank you and the people at your company who filled our order. You made dimensionally accurate, aesthetically pleasing parts on time and reasonably priced. And that’s no small accomplishment. Your efforts contributed significantly to a successful outcome with our client-who, as a result, has informed us of several additional projects they would like us to work on. Please pass my compliments along to the people involved.
