Sanle - One of Plastic Prototype Manufacturing Fabrication Companies in China
In nearly every single instance of product development, no matter what industry it’s for, prototyping is a necessary stage that will ultimately determine whether your production efforts will be successful or not. The rise of rapid prototyping has made it both easy and affordable to quickly iterate a plastic prototype. However, there are a range of manufacturing technologies that are capable of producing a plastic prototype, and knowing which one you should use will optimize the entire product development process.
We are one of China top plastic prototype companies, so we accept custom products including plastic bottles, plastic jars, plastic lids and other plastic parts. We can provide screen printing, heat transfer printing, pad printing, hot stamping silver, frosting, plating bright color and other production process services. In addition, if you want to customize a brand new plastic product, we can provide mold opening service to create your own unique product.
Plastic Prototype with our existing mold
We could do sample in different color according to pantone number ,and could do print with your logo on the sample to show how it looks like before bulk production
Bottle :Prepared Raw Material(mixed color if need )---Blowing Department(to put raw material into blowing machine,handle the machine)----Print Department(directly print on the bottle or to make label on the bottle )---Packing department(to do packing)
Jar: Raw Material(mixed color)---Injection Department(to put raw material into blowing machine,handle the machine)----Packing department(to do packing)
Print :need to do print plate according to the print artwork----adjust the print color ---directly to print on the bottle

Develop New Mold for Creative Prototypes
Usually for plastic material product ,have 2 crafts for mold : blowing mold and injection mold:
Blowing mold: used to form hollow plastic containers (such as cosmetic bottle ,beverage bottles, daily chemicals and other packaging containers), only applicable to the production of thermoplastic products, die structure is relatively simple, the materials used to make more carbon.
Injection mold was mainly in the production of thermoplastic plastic products has been widely applied in the kind of forming dies, molds the corresponding processing equipment is plastic injection molding machine, plastic in the first place in the bottom of the injection machine heating cylinder heated melting, and then in the injection molding machine screw or plunger, driven by the injection molding machine nozzle and mold gating system into the mold cavity, cooling hardening molding, plastic mold release products.Its structure is usually composed of forming parts, pouring system, guiding parts, pushing out mechanism, temperature regulating system, exhaust system, supporting parts and so on.Manufacturing materials usually use plastic mold steel, the common materials are mainly carbon structural steel, carbon tool steel, alloy tool steel, high-speed steel and so on.Injection molding processing mode is usually only applicable to the production of thermoplastic products, plastic products produced with injection molding process is very wide, from daily necessities to all kinds of complex machinery, electrical appliances, auto parts are molded with injection mold, it is the most widely used in the production of plastic products a processing method.
MOLD(Structural verification model): In the process of product design, from design scheme to mass production, it is generally necessary to make molds. The cost of mold manufacturing is very high, and relatively large molds are worth hundreds of thousands or even millions. If unreasonable structure or other problems are found during the mold opening process, the loss can be imagined. Therefore, making structural verification models can avoid this loss and reduce the risk of mold opening.
How to get your plastic prototypes
We also accept custom for new design ,progress as below:
•first ,send us your idea
•second,we will find some sample for reference and talk with you to confirm details
• third,we will offer drawing for approve by your side
•forth,will make a 3D sample for check before start to open mold
•fifth,start mold production
•sixth,we have our own design department and mold department ,could make your idea into real
About 3D Printed Prototypes
Usually, we mainly use resin materials to make 3D samples of molded products to confirm the appearance and general effect
3D model belongs to appearance verification models
Appearance verification model : A prototype model designed and produced by an engineer to verify the appearance of a product or a model that is directly used and requires high appearance. The appearance verification model is visible and touchable. It can directly reflect the designer's creativity in the form of a physical object, avoiding the disadvantage of "drawing to look good but not to make it look good". Appearance verification model making is indispensable in the process of new product development and product appearance scrutiny.
Based on the needs of the appearance verification model, it is first recommended to use photosensitive resin 3D SAMPLE ,cost less and also could check appearance effect
