In our experience, to keep a product competitive, it is important to continuously look for ways to make a product more distinguishable from the market. Gaining new market insights on product design, performance and cost can spark an interest in changing parts from metal to plastic. In practice, this transition is not a one-to-one exchange of one material and process for another. Instead, to make an effective redesign, a wider scope and a focus on risk reduction is required. This white paper will give more insight on how to approach such a transformation; from a metal part to plastics.
