Lifetime mold warranty of injection mold
DDPROTOTYPE provides different types of plastic injection mold, and provides different warranty to meet your production requirements. If you need a prototype or a low volume part mold, we guarantee that the prototype mold can hold up to 10000 pieces. However, if you need a larger number of plastic parts, we will provide lifetime mold warranty on all production molds.
Lifetime injection mold warranty means that we will maintain and renovate the mold as needed during the service life of your mold without any cost to you. As long as we run your parts in the manufacturing plant, your mold has a lifetime warranty under the terms and conditions of DDPROTOTYPE.
DDPROTOTYPE will correct design defects that are not conducive to injection molding before mold design. If at any time during the processing of the order there is a plastic defect and it has been identified, the customer will be informed. If the customer agrees, a design change will be made, otherwise the order will be void and the advance payment will be returned in full. When the customer’s design is not conducive to industry standards and / or DDPROTOTYPE molding technology, DDPROTOTYPE will provide design change suggestions. Tools and parts quotations are based on the size and weight of the parts listed in the quotation. The customer is responsible for verifying the parts listed in the quotation that meet the customer’s part design.
Pricing and payment terms
All prices are in US dollars and payment shall be made in US dollars. According to the customer’s credit report, at least 50% down payment is required to start mold production. The remaining tooling cost will be invoiced when the sample parts are shipped. Payment for parts is separate and prepaid. Five samples will be provided to the customer for inspection and acceptance of the mold. The customer shall have a period of 5 working days from the date the parts are received for sample approval. If icomold is not informed of non-compliance within this time period, the customer confirms approval and pays. Payment terms for parts have been prepaid with the order. Acceptable payment methods include wire transfers, ACh, checks, and credit and debit cards, including MasterCard, visa, American Express and discover.
All tools are based on customer supplied 3D CAD data, which replaces any conflict with 2D dimensional or geometric data. The first quality report of five samples of key dimensions indicated by the customer is provided free of charge. Refer to full-scale layouts, CMM reports, or more as needed.Once paid in full, the customer will assume ownership of the mold core. If a replaceable die holder is used, the customer has ownership of the die core. Ddprototype will maintain and store customers’ tools free of charge for three years of idle time. During this period, all tools are only used to manufacture parts for the original customer or his authorized partner. However, the dynamic characteristics of the injection molding process will not guarantee the accuracy of the part. After adding shrinkage, cut the mold to a standard tolerance of + / – 0.005 inches. The standard tolerance for CNC machined parts is + / – 0.005 inch for plastic parts and + / – 0.002 inch for metal parts.
Part design iteration
DDPROTOTYPE will modify the tool to support design changes to the quote. DDPROTOTYPE reserves the right to determine the suitability of the die modification and manufacture of new tooling. For each part run or tool sample resulting from a customer driven mold design change, an installation fee will be charged based on the size of the injection molding machine required. Changing or adding plastic resins or colors will result in additional trial and approved samples for which the customer will be quoted. Each change of color during part operation will incur costs.
