How to Avoid Common Pitfalls With NPD Projects

By identifying the common pitfalls of new product development (NPD) projects and understanding where other companies have failed in the past, you can avoid making the same mistakes and find success with your project.


Why Assigned Project Managers Are Critical for NPD Projects

The process of taking a new product to market consists of many moving parts. Engineering will focus on the design while production will handle the manufacturing. But who has a bird’s-eye view over the whole process to ensure that everything goes according to plan? For many companies, the answer is no one.


Hidden Benefits of Working With a Privately Held Manufacturing Partner

There are times when more influence and input leads to better results. For example, a brainstorming session can leverage different mindsets to crack the code and reach the ideal outcome. There are also times when less is more. Such is the case when working with a privately held manufacturing partner as opposed to a publicly held company.


Choosing the Right Metals to Manufacture Your Product

With thousands of potential materials to choose from, knowing what’s right for your project can seem like a daunting challenge. But by identifying key project objectives and breaking down the product piece by piece, you can successfully match the right metals to your needs.


Taking a New Product to Market - Outsourcing vs. Internal Product Development

Developing and taking new products to market is critical to the success of your brand, but studies show that 95% of newly developed products fail in market. Learn if outsourced new product development (NPD) is right for your needs, and how we can help.


Advantages of Deep Drawing Larger Parts

Deep-draw stamping is well-known as a cost-effective method for producing complex parts at higher volumes. In the right application, deep drawing is a superior alternative solution to part fabrication when tight specifications and consistent parts are required. These benefits can even extend to larger or more complex parts, depending on individual specifications.


Design Engineering Coupled with Superior Manufacturing Capabilities

When organizations partner with design and engineering experts before the manufacturing process, they make the conscious choice to manufacture better products of guaranteed quality—at the best possible cost. Product quality, increasing costs, and troubles with delivery and lead times can all play heavily on your brand image and operational success.


Squeeze Dispensers Repurposed for Sanitizing

Hand sanitizer is a necessity today in work, medical, retail and personal environments and it is almost impossible to find in retail stores or online. But with these limitations, we are seeing creative uses of common items to keep everyone safe.


Standard Medical Products

Healthcare facilities are faced with increasingly high demands, so the need for exceptional, reliable supplies continues to grow. Quality equipment can save valuable time, streamline workflows and ensure smooth daily operations, and that’s exactly what Vollrath’s medical supply products are designed to do.


Benefits of the Companion Cart Mobile Cleaning, Sanitizing and Disinfecting System

It is no secret that cleanliness and sanitation are of the utmost importance today – in every public setting like health facilities, long-term care facilities, manufacturing locations and retail environments where contaminated items can pose a major health risk to anyone who encounters them. The Companion Cart Mobile Cleaning, Sanitizing and Disinfecting System from Stoelting makes sanitizing anywhere easier than ever.


Why a career in manufacturing is a great choice for women

Manufacturing has made strides when it comes to adding women to its ranks, but there’s still a fairly significant gender gap. Two women in the industry offer their perspective on why building a career in manufacturing was the right move for them, and offer advice to others starting out.


Anodizing 101

Anodizing aluminum is an electrochemical process that creates a layer of protection that makes the lightweight, durable material ideal for applications from automotive parts to bakeware. Working with a supplier that understands the process from prototype to production offers you a better experience and result.


Choosing the Right Deep Draw Supplier

Deep draw - the process of transforming blank sheets of metal into a variety of parts – is one of the most popular metal forming methods available to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). With so many possibilities, choosing the right supplier for your project is key.
