Product development: from mould design to plastic product.
Fast and economical prototype development
Promatrix produces moulds in-house and also uses them to produce plastic products. This allows us to supply prototype products quickly and at a competitive price.
Benefits of prototyping at Promatrix
Products can be tested and quickly brought to market
Promatrix produces moulds and plastic products in-house. Our engineering, machining and injection moulding departments are fully equipped to make aluminium moulds with the shortest possible lead times. This means we can supply moulds and trial mouldings within four weeks.
The end product is representative of the reality of mass production
When Promatrix produces a prototype mould, we always consider the most efficient way of making the final prototype series. This means we may avoid complex structures and decide to remove products by hand. Of course, we always discuss such things with our customers.
We can help you to determine the price of your products. The price of products made using moulds that require manual labour will be higher than fully-automatic moulds. We can work with you to determine which scenario results in the best total price.
Industries and Cases
Many of the moulds that Promatrix produces are trial moulds (also known as prototype moulds). In most cases, customers want to test how their products work. The automotive industry in particular makes extensive use of prototyping, because no aspect of car development is left to chance. Newly designed cars are fully tested before they enter the market. This means most plastic parts must be made using the same method as the final product. Because the method is the same, the car can be fully tested. Promatrix produces moulds and plastic products for the automotive industry. These include various types of car parts, such as bumpers, grilles, headlights and tail lights, as well as dashboards, door panels, centre consoles, engine parts and mirrors.
