When evaluating materials for manufacturing, creators have a lot to consider. They need to think about the integrity of their eventual product, of course, but they also need to review how materials can make manufacturing costs skyrocket. It’s not just the quality of the materials themselves that makes them so expensive. It’s the challenges involved in sourcing them and the difficulty of working with them.
Some materials require extensive preparation, which can make manufacturing time-consuming. Others may offer a faster path to production but not provide the quality the creator desires. At Pacific Research Laboratories, we work with a wide range of materials, even going as far as customizing some for projects. This strategy helps us take a design for manufacturing approach that allows creators to ramp up production without dealing with unexpected expense hikes.
