Prototypes in plastic is a process in which manufacturers make one-offs for companies developing new products. The prototype is made to test the design and make any needed improvements before the serial production starts.
Prototypes are often complicated and require suppliers who are willing to work with small projects where feedback is often given to those who have developed the prototype, for example, to make changes as the project progresses.
Depending on the size and the type of manufacturing process, prototype manufacturing is performed by various workshops. Some projects are small and simple, while others are large, complex and valuable.
This company who are heavily involved in the pyrotechnic blasting industry are looking to discuss the possibility of a supply of plastic flat springs.
What they are looking for is a spring that is approx. 35/40mm wide and 1.0m+ long and preferably plastic, that will coil up when released. (similar idea to a child's reflective snap band)
This may be better described in a telephone conversation so the buyer welcomes calls to discuss this prototype further.
The finished article is required to provide emergency line clearance services to the power and telecom industry during the current Covid 19 crisis.
This Glaswegian agricultural company would like to hear from possible suppliers who can assist with the initial production of plastic spirals, which are to be plastic welded into free-issue barrels. There is an immediate order to place for this enquiry, which is expected to be repeated going forward although the frequency is not yet known. As this is a new part, the quantities are expected to increase over time.
