Injection Molding and Tooling – Since 1972

Our Process

Every situation is unique. We are here to help you with the process of taking your idea from paper to production with what you need.

1 The CVT Process: From Paper to Production

We understand our start-up customers: You have been working on your idea for years, and then fine tuning it even more. Now you are ready to move forward to discuss your project and get it moving. CVT has worked with many start-up companies in your same position. We also work with large corporations.

2 Initial CVT Meeting and Visit

Welcome to our facility! We are very proud of what we have built over our 45-year history. You will meet our staff, see the tool room, walk the production floor, and see for yourself what is involved in the production of plastic parts.

During your meeting you will likely be sitting with our President, Vice President, Head of Engineering, and Sales Manager. We want anyone involved with your project included in this meeting to make you feel comfortable with our staff. We like the combined years of experience together in the same room to hear your idea and ask questions so we are well informed about your direction and vision.

You need to bring:

  • Prototypes/samples of your parts for your project.
  • Any drawings/sketches/plans of your idea(s).
  • Engineered files you may have.

You will:

  • Tour the Quality Lab.
  • Tour the Tool Room.
  • Tour the Production Floor.
  • See samples of parts/projects we have created.

We will discuss:

  • Your project idea(s).
  • Best ways to mold your part(s).
  • Mold/tool building ideas.
  • Possible materials for your project.

You will leave with:

  • Rough estimates on mold/tooling costs.
  • Rough estimates on part costs.

3 The CVT staff then meet to discuss your project

The following week we will provide you with budgetary estimates for your design cost, mold cost, and part cost. Estimates are emailed and followed up for any clarifications or questions; estimates are revised as needed.

Quotes are based on materials used, volume, cost, processes necessary, and any other determining factors.
