We have pre-market confidentiality agreements with all of our customers. All the cases you see have been communicated with our clients. We have mosaiced some sensitive information. All the pictures are taken from FirstMold’s internal shooting, thanks for your support and cooperation~

What materials are typically used for injection molding calculator housings?

Common materials include ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) for its strength and durability, and Polycarbonate (PC) for its clarity and impact resistance. Material selection depends on the specific requirements for the calculator’s design and functionality.

How can clients communicate their specific material requirements for calculator housings?

Clients can specify their material requirements during the initial consultation phase. Our team is available to provide guidance on material selection based on the calculator housing’s performance, durability, and cost considerations.

What surface finishes are available for injection-molded calculator housings?

A: We offer various surface finishes, including matte, glossy, textured, and custom finishes, to enhance the calculator housing’s appearance and feel.

Can FirstMold handle high-volume mass production for calculator housings?

Yes, our facilities are equipped for high-volume mass production, ensuring we can meet large order quantities without compromising on quality or precision in the final product.

What technologies are used in mold-making for calculator housings?

A: We utilize advanced CNC machining service, EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining), and CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing) technologies to create precise and durable molds for calculator housings.

Are there design restrictions for calculator housings made via injection molding?

A: While injection molding offers significant design flexibility, considerations such as wall thickness uniformity, draft angles for easy part ejection, and the inclusion of ribs for structural support should be factored into the design to optimize manufacturability.

What file formats are accepted for calculator housing designs?

A: We accept a variety of file formats for design submissions, including but not limited to STEP, IGES, SolidWorks, and AutoCAD files. Our team can work with you to determine the most appropriate format for your project.

Aesthetic Requirements:

1. The surface of the part needs to be without any areas of injection molding defects such as whitening, cracks, deformation, burrs, welding lines, bubbles, and residual parts.
2. Silk-screen printing must be free of flaws such as gaps, unevenness, etc., and the color should be well-balanced without peers.

Performance Requirements:

1. The shell shall never emit sounds that are different or strange to the ear when tapped or pressed.
2. Per original prints, drawings, and BOM, all dimensional and material data shall have to comply.
