STEP 2: PRODUCT CONCEPT

Your ideas can be submitted in the form of a simple sketch through to a more detailed graphic outlining what you want to achieve.

mgnt-step3

STEP 3: PRODUCT DESIGN

Next our professional Industrial Designers will turn your concept into detailed specification drawings and product models using State of the Art 3D CAD software. From here we can commence the production tooling.

mgnt-step4

STEP 4: PROTOTYPE

Once production tooling is complete, we are able to create a full size prototype, providing you and your customer with a physical product for you to test your market.

STEP 5: TOOL DESIGN

The next step is to computer analyse the mould filling and colling to ensure the tool design is optimised for maximum production efficiency. From here a meeting with our toolmaker will confirm final specifications prior to tooling manufacture.

STEP 6: TOOLING MANUFACTURE

Once the final tooling specifications are approved the manufacture of your tooling will commence. During the manufacturing process you will receive regular progress reports keeping you up to speed.

STEP 7: TOOL TRIAL

On completion of the final tool, trialling is conducted at the toolmakers premises to ensure your product meets the design specifications.

mgnt-step8

STEP 8: MARKETING

During the tooling stage all marketing, advertising, packaging and instructional literature is also developed and approved to ensure it’s completion coincides with
your product’s production.
