When you need a precision-machined, custom plastic component or assembly, you need to ensure your product is machined to the highest tolerance from initial prototype to complete production. While selecting a supplier may seem daunting, HP Manufacturing compiled a list of key factors to consider when determining which CNC plastic machining supplier to choose to fit your unique needs.
- Material Selection: By selecting a supplier that has its products in-house with materials arriving on a weekly basis to our onsite distribution center and with a procurement team buying direct, you need not worry about finding and selecting the material you need to ensure your finished product is delivered with the critical components you need.
- Lead Time: When you are researching suppliers, sometimes you don’t have time to wait upward of 10-12 weeks from quote request to order to delivery. Selecting a supplier that keeps this time relatively short not only ensures your product is delivered within your specific timeline, but it also gives you a sense of trust that you are not waiting until the absolute last minute to receive your custom product.
- Custom Manufacturer with a Deep Sense of Customer Service Principles: With in-house resources, production timelines are kept tight and offer more control over your finished product. By choosing a supplier that works closely with your company’s different teams – whether it be engineering, logistics, or others – you need to be assured that a dedicated quality team is there to support your organization every step of the way.
- International Standards Organization (ISO) Certification: An ISO certification further demonstrates a company’s commitment to the requirements of the latest quality process standards. This certification is yet another assurance that the precision-machined, plastic components and assemblies received will be of the highest quality.
At the end of the day, it is all about finding a supplier that creates quality parts and who you can trust. With more than 80 years in the industry, HP Manufacturing has a proven track record of doing just that.
