How to choose an Injection Mold Supplier

2020-12-18


Injection tooling supplier


In today’s Global market when looking for a tool shop there are many choices for plastic injection mold builders. When looking for suppliers, you’ll need to decide whether you want to source domestically or from overseas. Typically, overseas suppliers are located in Asian countries like China, India and Taiwan. That’s because it’s often cheaper to source your tooling overseas, especially in these countries. But there's more to the decision than cost. Both domestic and overseas sourcing have their advantages and disadvantages:


Domestic sourcing


Advantages:


  • Easier to verify manufacturing quality and labor standards.
  • Easier communication with no language barrier.
  • Marketing appeal of being made in North America.
  • Easier to verify reputable manufacturers.



Disadvantages:


  • Higher manufacturing costs.
  • Higher labor costs.
  • Longer lead-Times



Overseas sourcing


Advantages:


  • Lower manufacturing costs.
  • High number of manufacturers to choose from.
  • Quicker lead-times



Disadvantages:


  • Lower perceived quality.
  • Language, communication and time zone barriers can be difficult to navigate.
  • Difficult to verify manufacturer and visit on-site.
  • Longer shipping time.
  • Product importation and customs clearance.



Finding an overseas shop that can have the same advantages as both a domestic and overseas shop and eliminating the disadvantages can be hard to find.
