So how is the mould made?
Following is a brief introduction to the modern mold production process.
1)ESI(Earlier Supplier Involvement 供应商早期参与):此阶段主要是客户与供应商之间进行的关于产品设计和模具开发等方面的技术探讨，主要的目的是为了让供应商清楚地领会到产品设计者的设计意图及精度要求，同时也让产品设计者更好地明白模具生产的能力，产品的工艺性能，从而做出更合理的设计。
1) ESI (Earlier Supplier Involvement Vendor Early Participation): This stage is mainly a technical discussion between customers and suppliers on product design and die development. The main purpose of this stage is to let suppliers clearly understand the design intentions and accuracy requirements of product designers, as well as product designers. Better understanding of the ability of die production, product process performance, so as to make a more reasonable design.
Quotation: Including the price of the die, the life of the die, the turnover process, the required tonnage of the machine and the delivery date of the die. (More detailed quotation should include product size and weight, die size and weight and other information. )
3) Purchase Order: Customer orders, the issuance of orders and the acceptance of supplier orders.
4)模具生产计划及排工安排(Production Planning and Schedule Arrangement):此阶段需要针对模具的交货的具体日期向客户作出回复。
4) Production Planning and Schedule Arrangement: At this stage, we need to reply to the customer according to the specific delivery date of the mould.
