Transferring a mold to a new supplier can be a daunting task. It usually is in a time where products have been delayed and you have an immediate need for parts. JDI understands this and has implemented an internal procedure to simplify the transfer process:
After discussing and reviewing your parts, we will go over any special requirements (i.e. inspection, packaging, etc.).
JDI will develop and communicate a realistic timeline for the transfer process to be completed.
All necessary components and materials are ordered ahead of time to prevent delays.
Each mold is immediately inspected, cleaned, and lubricated upon arrival at our facility. Repairs are completed if deemed necessary.
The mold is sampled and parts are inspected in our quality department. Any final corrections or adjustments are made, based off of the initial inspection, and then a final inspection occurs.
JDI will supply all requested quality documentation (FAI, PPAP, etc.) to the customer as well as sample parts.
The customer approves the samples and the mold is cleared for production.
