Product Development

Molytex have the expertise to assist in every step of the development process, from early concept design to volume manufacturing.

This means that Molytex is the right sparring partner in terms of selecting the right material, the right mold design and/or incorporating product functionality for added value. It also means that you get the right cost-balance and reducing the time-to-market.

With more than 20 years of experience, Molytex's in-house engineering team can assist you in complex decision making in regards to metal replacement, high performance polymers or pros and cons of adding various additives like carbon fibers, PTFE or metal powder to name a few.

The selection of polymer and additives often have implications on the mold-design. Molytex involve the mold maker and other sub contractors at an early stage to ensure an actively engaged supply chain in the project. Specifically this means that there is no one-size-fits-all, and all projects is engineered and designed according to the product specifications.
 

Product development is also a matter of choosing between in-mold solutions or options of reworking the part after the injection molding process. This could be over-molding of metal parts, insert threads or drilling holes or threads to reworking standards.

Product Re-Engineering

The close integration of Molytex's development and manufacturing teams means we are well placed to perform successful product re-designs.

A typical Molytex initiative will draw on our well-integrated value chain and focus on improving margins and quality. This is achieved through the introduction of new, lower-cost components, improvements in production practices and reductions in waste through increased robustness. An extended product lifetime is ensured through a ”Life Cycle Analysis”, an upgrade to new technologies, improved features and increased functionality.

By allowing Molytex to carry out re-engineering, customers free up internal resources to focus on new products.
