Conceptual design is the initial stage of the polymer engineering process. It allows us to work with you to determine what features your product should have and what data should be used to measure the performance of the product. From concept through to volume production, TRP Polymer Solutions offers a complete conceptual design service, providing support to your early stage project ideas and cost estimations.
In order to ensure the successful ideation and development of your polymer product, it is important to provide us with all the functional requirements of your desired product. This enables us to explore and refine ideas at the early conceptual design stages, which entails thorough research, sketching designs and the collaboration of ideas throughout the team.
At TRP Polymer Solutions, we have an abundance of skills and expertise to formulate innovative solutions that fulfil all your application requirements. First and foremost, we take the time to understand your specific needs, and work closely with you to develop a bespoke conceptual design that meets your operational requirements. For example, FFKM O-Rings are designed using a rubber material that has a high thermal resistance, which makes them suitable for chemical applications.
Your polymer product will undergo the following steps before going into production:
Polymer Technology – We will design and formulate innovative new polymer blends to achieve your desired performance goals.
Design and application engineering – As part of the design process, we will implement a range of skills, including component design CAD, polymer FEA and feasibility DFMEA.
Production process – Finally, we will carry out a Process Failure Mode Effects Analysis (PFMEA) to test the integrity of our conceptual design.
