DESIGN SUPPORT & ENGINEERING

Program
Management

At Velosity, we approach each project as a team and become an extension of your organization. Collaboration is key to success and our experienced engineering professionals utilize their experience and your product needs to develop solutions to exceed your expectations.

DESIGN SUPPORT & ENGINEERING

Design for
Manufacturability

Our engineers and project teams are highly skilled at providing Design for Manufacturability (DFM) and Design for Assembly (DFA) support.  We will recommend design enhancements, component consolidation and other considerations to reduce costs, optimize part performance and manufacturability allowing you to move expeditiously from design through qualification, validation/PPAP and into production.

DESIGN SUPPORT & ENGINEERING

Mold Simulation 

Velosity is well versed in the use of Moldflow and similar molding simulation software. Predicting flow patterns and identifying potential mold filling concerns, such as sink or areas of high stress, early in the design phase will save time and costs later in the project.

Process
Development

Our process development team excels in the implementation of Scientific Injection Molding Principles. Process development starts with effective DFM, leading to superior tooling design, which sets the stage for robust process development and high quality products. 

DESIGN SUPPORT & ENGINEERING

Validation

Whether we utilize protocols defined by our customers, protocols developed by Velosity or those developed in concert with our customers, our team can provide complete validation / qualification support. From metrology to component qualification to full IQ (Mold Development), OQ (Process Development) and PQ (Process Verification) validation; Velosity will lead the charge to provide you best-in-class validation / qualification support.

Tooling Design & Manufacture

Whether you want to fully participate in the mold design process or just receive parts, Velosity welcomes you as an integral part of the team. Our tooling support team outshines the competition in the areas of new tool development. Velosity is also able to integrate and refine tooling that is transferred from other molders.

Types of Tooling:
The type of tooling best used for your application is a function of a number of inputs.  Part volumes, part complexity, part design confidence, material selection and product lifecycle must all be considered when selecting the type of mold to design and build.

Lower volumes – consider master unit die (MUD)

Similar part designs and materials – family tools may be a consideration

Similar part designs and different materials – could warrant an interchangeable mold inserts

High volume projects – multi-cavity and possibly a hot runner system

High-cost raw materials – creative tool design solutions to reduce waste

Whatever your requirements we will help you select the best tooling options for your application.
