Where Do We Start?

Prototyping is a cost effective start to building a great new product.  We build prototype products for customers in every stage of the development process. Customers can come to HTI directly requesting a product prototype for something they've already designed, or other times they come to us with just a concept for a new product. Many of our customers already know exactly how they want their prototype built and what materials they want to use. We frequently provide our expertise and guidance in making these decisions.

At HTI, all of our raw materials come to us in a pelletized form, so - naturally - we love the stuff. But it's a bit of an odd relationship ... we can't touch it! The integrity of a final plastic product depends in large part on the raw material being physically handled as little as possible. Because of this relationship, we use a custom designed, automated system to hold and distribute the raw plastics to our machines.  We partnered with Motan, who following our requirements built a system that handles our current capacity but is equipped to handle our future growth.

At HTI, we work with our customers to help them determine the type of mold that will suit their product best. Whether it's a new design or an existing design that we're helping make "moldable," we'll ask a series of questions to determine the best type of mold for the product.
