For this project we have produced a batch of production of 1000 parts through mold prototypes.

The project concerns the development of a plane's seat for ATR aircrafts. Our customer, an italian well-known and strengthened reality of aeronautical sector, undisputed leader in manufacturing sector for seats and interiors for aicrafts, involved us in the production of an accesory part: the magazine rack.

The request was to produce 1000 parts with definitive material and a mould, made by plastic injection, with a certain precision for doing HIC tests which are impact dynamic tests for the certification.

Given the request, the production of mold prototypes could be the only solution.

The prototype mold is a suitable solution for the production of small batches in plastic material; generally it is very convenient when the customer has no interest in buying the production equipment but needs a limited number of pieces (up to a few hundred) in 5/6 weeks.

The cost is moderate compared to the production of definitive mold and the initial investment, necessary for the production of the temporary equipment, can be shared on the number of the parts to produce.

Thanks to this solution the customer succeeded in having, in quick time, samples with definitive materials to achieve the requests of the certification, typical of the aeronautical sector.
