High-level outline of the steps involved in a typical technology transfer program
- Preliminary part design review
- DFM review
- Design freeze
- Equipment identification, selection and subsequent delivery to our facility (e.g.; molding machines, auxiliary equipment, automation equipment, EOAT design and fabrication)
- Tool design
- Tool fabrication
- Tooling trials
- Process development – scientific molding, add automation for part removal and subsequent processing activities, etc.
- Process validation, FAI, etc.
- Representatives from your operations visit Teamvantage to observe and train on the processing steps and mold preventative maintenance activities, etc.
- Equipment, tooling, tooling drawings and CAD files, process documentation, etc. are moved (physically and electronically where applicable)
- After the transfer, our team remains available as a resource to answer any questions and provide any other necessary support to ensure a 100% successful result
