To produce plastic caps or similar products, dip moulding is, especially for large volumes, the most interesting technique. This is because:
- Low costs of prototyping (amending the moulds is still easy in this phase)
- Low production costs of the mould, in particular when compared to injection moulding
- Therefore, also of interest for large volumes (serial production)
- Short delivery times (also for follow-up orders)
- Material available in many colours, both gloss and matt
- Stress free (long life)
No unnecessary investment
Last but not least… we base the number of production moulds on the turnover (numbers) you expect to require per period. This prevents unnecessary investment in production assets.
Dip moulding versus injection moulding
When compared to injection moulding, dip moulding is certainly an interesting option. For instance, the start-up costs for dip moulding are many times lower, as only a single-sided mould is required. The start-up costs for your new product are substantially lower, in part because during the pre-production phase, changes can be made at limited additional cost.
