We are a design firm located in northern California and are looking for a consultant to advise on product manufacturing and development.
We currently have a product that has been 3D designed and is ready to manufacture - we are looking for assistance with choosing the right plastics to incorporate into our design. We are currently considering injection molding as our manufacturing process, and would like recommendations on the most feasible substrate material to use as well as material for the over mold.
We are looking for a consultant that can offer expertise on design, flow and/or warpage analysis, as well as plastics material recommendations.
Please respond to this job posting with examples of products that you have previously consulted on, and/or examples of what work you have done within the plastics world and how you have come to be an expert.
And to test your detail-oriented skill set, please also include your favorite type of sock choice. Are you an argyle sock sporting consultant, a fan of toe socks, an ankle sock wearer, or typically barefoot?
We'd like to get our product to market this summer, and prefer someone who can start next week, May 13th.
