We can help you to determine the factors involved in figuring the cost of a welded product. Since there can be many significant requirements for each product, one important cost consideration comes in the selection of materials such as vinyl, coated fabrics and other polar molecular and textile materials. Our product designers and engineers offer the expertise in material selection and process applications you’ll need before the fabrication process gets underway.
If you can identify the base material(s) of which the proposed unit will be constructed, we just need an accurate sketch showing fairly exact dimensions and construction. We’ll also need to know the functionality of the product to determine what, if any, ancillary services are required. Since radio frequency welding, heat sealing and/or commercial sewing methods are used in the fabrication of flexible products, the material selection is important in order to not only facilitate manufacturing, but to make sure any ancillary products can be securely attached and function properly.
If you cannot identify the base material(s) that will form the unit, we will need to know the intended application and how critical the overall dimensions are. We’ll also need to know the anticipated environment the unit will be subjected. We will provide you with various material options and their advantages and disadvantages associated with RF welding or heat sealing processes. In either scenario, we may have questions. However, once those questions are answered we can furnish you with a unit cost broken out by quantity. We will also provide you with an accurate production lead time.
Please note: If the intended application is for fluid containment or gas containment, we would need to know the internal pressure, target volume of containment and the fluid or gas that is to be contained.
