Collaborating with product owners and designers in need of well-designed, manufacturable custom silicone parts and production expertise.
When you come to us with a new product concept/idea or just a draft without a 3D CAD drawing, collaboration is the first step.
We support our customers early in the product design stage, sharing valuable input to optimize the custom silicone part design for manufacturing and enhancing the product’s final functional performance.
Our engineers will serve as an extension of your engineering team, working together early to gain a comprehensive understanding of your product needs and its components.
After a thorough discussion about your needs, goals, and requirements, our design and manufacturing engineers will work with your team to make sure the design meets processing requirements and can be produced consistently and cost-effectively.
A detailed design concept review ensures we fully understand your specific design, engineering, and manufacturing needs.
Mutual communication can help you save time and money when you are designing a custom-made silicone product by getting involved in the early stages of silicone product development. From concept through product launch, our engineers ensure that each project is individually designed for success.
Looking for a silicone manufacturer that can customize silicone products with design assistance? Contact our silicone experts today for the best advice and assistance with your next silicone rubber requirement.
Visualize the silicone project design process
Our skilled engineers will work collaboratively with customers at an early stage of customized silicone parts design. With thorough communication, our engineers will work out the 3D files after a mutual agreement on the final design. 2D or 3D CAD Moldeling will be sent to customer for review to double check if anywhere need to be revised. From the drawing, customer can see：
The overall silicone part size
Silicone parts segment views from different sides
Renderings to have a look and feel of the final silicone part
We provide innovative solutions to bring new products to full production. Looking for a silicone manufacturer to creat a custom silicone product? Contact us today.
Design for Manufacture (DFM) reduces waste and increases the production efficiency.
It is important for our engineer team to see a finished 3D part design before a custom silicone rubber piece quote. The 3D drawing can be in the formats of STEP/STP, IGES/IGS, PRT, X_T, and SLDPRT.
For customers with existing 3D part design, an important consideration in silicone part design optimization is DFM (Design for Manufacturing).
Our professional engineering team will undertake a thorough, engineering-oriented analysis of your product – digging into the details to suggest design changes to ensure an enhanced part design, optimized molding process, and superior quality parts.
We perform full DFM analysis on all custom silicone projects. Want to know about the manufacturing process and the design manufacturability of OEM design silicone parts? Welcome to contact us.
Choosing the right silicone material and an eye-catching color when manufacturing a new silicone part is vital for its success.
Silicone rubber materials are formulated into so many different types, so choosing the best fit material is crucial to your project’s success. Please inform us in advance of your specific application needs, so we can recommend the right material for your cases.
When we first see a product, the first thing that comes into our eyes is the color and contour. Therefore, product color matching must be placed in a very important position in the product design process! Different colors bring different feelings to customers. Our color matching includes:
Pantone Match: Choose a color from the Pantone book or Electronic Pantone online. Please choose a color from Formula Guide | Solid Coated (color number ended with the letter C).
Physical Match: Any physical items you find lying around can be matched to a specific pigment and color. You can send the color sample to us, our professional color master can work out the color formula 99% match with your sample.
HB Silicone has experts who can help you select the materials and color of your tailor-made silicone product, creating the perfect combination of both. Meet our experts today.
Cost is one of the important factors to be considered when designing the silicone part
During the new product design phase, our engineer will also discuss with your team regarding your target price and annual expected part volume. The price can vary depending on silicone parts’ size, weight, and complexity.
Our engineers will make recommendations including material selection, structure analysis, mold cavitation, surface finish, and branding ways within your budget.
