In the end what made more sense was to sell the company and so I did, but one thing I learnt from working with all the big companies that used us for molding was: Forget engineers, design specialist and all. Get yourself a great mold technician and show him what you want to do. The 2 years turnaround will be 3 monts, specially with a simple part as grille. Also, he will be able to discuss different materials with real world experience.
    Sounds like we have a volunteer !

    I wish I could do it but I am really talking about someone who's got 20-30 years of experience. I have seen it many times. X engineer from big car company would come by and bring CAD files and an experienced technician would say not going to work. This injector would blow or there would be no expansion there, or this mold needs this or that... I really feel it is an ability that you can only acquire working for a long time on the same. Also, you need to find someone who really specializes on the materials of interest. An expert on small plastic molds will not see the same things as an expert on heavy metal molds will see.

    I 100% agree with you. Fabrice is a plastics mold expert, and he's learning what's important with metal molding. There is skills carry-over, but it's not 1:1.

    One of the big reasons Bugs and I moved to Hong Kong, was so that we could hire local engineers, who could speak the same language as the specialist engineers at each parts manufacturer. It's pretty rare for anything to be simple, and most times, my engineers need to make changes to our products, to accommodate material and process realities.

    With the drip tray cover, for instance, we added 0.5mm thickness around the outer frame to enable smoother flowing of aluminium during the mold injection step.

    Afternoon all,

    I'll be taking the DE1+ Pro with me to the London Coffee Festival, specifically to Prufrock on the weds before the festival starts (I'm too.busy during the fours days itself)

    There will be a 2 hour hands on demo slot in the training room late afternoon (4-6) and then another one upstairs in Prufrock from 7.30.

    I'll start a new post about this , and other dates and venues for a decent UK tour later today.

    @matisse - on the Prufrock pages it shows as Thursday 12th - not sure that's intentional from what you said before.
    Everything my heart could desire (more or less). . .

    can confirm that the date is the `11th, the weds before the festival. Date has been changed on the prufrock site.

    If you plan on being anywhere near Leamington Spa (Warwickshire) on your tour with the DE1+ Pro please let me know. Would love to see the machine in action close up!
