Low cost sourcing of plastic components
17 January 2007
Blue Diamond has expanded its scope of supply to include a wide range of moulded components in almost any shape, size or material. By sourcing from carefully vetted and approved suppliers in the Far East, Blue Diamond is able to supply all types of high quality injection moulded components at very competitive prices.
Sourcing from low cost base suppliers significantly reduces the cost of moulded plastic components. However, many companies have concerns about product quality and continuity of supply, combined with the problems of communication and unfamiliar administration procedures. Blue Diamond takes control of every aspect of the supply chain to provide all the benefits of global procurement with the reliability and convenience of a single UK source.
With any moulded component there is always the need for tooling and when switching suppliers there may be an issue with providing replacement tooling which can involve considerable expense. Blue Diamond can help source new tooling at a fraction of the UK cost. But rather than just replacing like with like, its engineers will assess the suitability of any existing tooling and suggest improvements, for example a change from a single to multiple cavity tool, that may help to further reduce costs.
The Blue Diamond service supplies products for use in a wide range of industries, including construction, automotive, agriculture, building, and office equipment, pumps, electric motors and instrumentation. Mouldings can be almost any size, shape or colour and materials include Acetal, Nylon, Polypropylene, Styrene, ABS etc. and a range of fillers are available where enhanced properties are required.
Blue Diamond has a wealth of experience in the assembly and supply of finished components, which offers further opportunities to reduce cost savings when compared to conventional assembly methods.
Using the latest 3 axis CNC optical inspection equipment, Blue Diamond can control quality to ensure that components meet customer requirements time after time.
With several containers arriving every month Blue Diamond is able to consolidate shipments thereby minimising transportation costs and providing further savings for the customer.
