Process of custom mold
Step 1: Submit your requirements/design drawings
Please send us a list of your production requirements for new product, describe your product in as much detail as possible, and reference pictures (manuscripts, sketches, 3D drawings, reference finished products). Ailin’s 3D graphic design is a fee-based item.
Step 2: Confirm/modify the design
Ailin will carry out the preliminary design according to the list, submit the 3D design drawing, and communicate with you for confirmation. Once confirmed, it will not be changed later.
Step 3: Quotation & Payment
Ailin will comprehensively calculate the design drawing and list details, and send the final quotation. The payment method is 50% in advance, and the balance payment is paid before the official mold opening.
Step 4: Prototype confirmation and mold opening
Ailin produces plastic prototype samples through lathes and officially enters the mold opening process. The prototype can help you understand the appearance and details of the future finished product, but it does not necessarily realize all the functions of the product.
Step 5: Mass production
After confirming the sample, Ailin will communicate with you the details of the bulk order, and start mass production and delivery after payment.
