We often get asked "How much will it cost to make my product?" Since each project is different and has unique requirements, there is no easy answer.
Here we will break down some of the factors that determine the project cost.
The type and grade of materials you choose significantly impacts final cost. Premium materials may incur higher expenses.
If you do not know what material would be best, we can help you choose.
While our workers are efficient, it still takes time to operate the machines, inspect, assemble, test, package, load, and ship the final product.
If your project needs tooling, will you provide it, or does it need to be made? The grade of steel and whether the tooling is single or multi-cavity will also affect the cost.
Raw materials have lower prices as the volume increases. The higher your annual need, the lower the price. 10,000 units per year will be cheaper than 2,000 units per year.
Does your product require assembly? If so, you it will likely need assembly and testing fixtures, some types of testing include heat, exposure, function, or lifecycle. More extensive tests will increase costs.
How complex does the packaging need to be? Individual or bulk? Pallet configuration? Pieces per box? Many options are available, and each can affect the final cost per piece.
Now that we have gone over some of the main cost factors you have a good understanding of the information required in order for us to provide an accurate quote. More details = more accuracy.
