What is the Design Verification Program?

Our Design Verification Program includes a First Article Inspection with inspection methods and tolerances dictated by you. This is a standard procedure for all Injection Molding orders, and is available on request for CNC machining orders.


You can utilise this program to:

  • Test for fit in-house
  • Verify that our quality meets your expectations


It works as follows:

  • 2 sets of parts will be shipped to you for verification
  • Once the parts are approved, we will continue with full production
  • If you require any design changes, you can submit the modified models to us. Please note that any significant changes may result in an increase in price.
