Why does the price of customized silicone products vary greatly from difference manufacturer?
Silicone products are widely used in a variety of fields, including daily necessities, electronics, medical and industrial sectors, due to their excellent performance. When we customized silicone products, we usually deal with different manufacturers and in addition to finding the right manufacturer with the right qualifications, price is always an issue.
Often businesses want to get a better quality product at a lower price, but manufacturers have costs to cover, so there are no absolute bargains, only relatively good value for money. Very often the low prices we see are usually at the expense of the quality of the product. So to get a relatively better balance between price and quality, we need to understand what the considerations are for manufacturers’ quotations when it comes to customized silicone products. The following OYIGIFTS give you a brief introduction to.
1, the size of the mould, the number of cavities, the price of large mould samples
2, the target silicone products using the rubber, such as gross weight, single material price (gross weight + processing fee}, and
3, product processing costs, such as manufacturers’ start-up costs, labor costs and manufacturers’ production capacity
4、Demolition of edges, which includes the cost of labor, production capacity and raw edge rate
5、Quality inspection, such as labor costs, production capacity and defective products
6、Packaging materials, labor and transport costs.
Generally speaking, the quotation is calculated by adding all of the above and then multiplying by the defective rate. In terms of the above factors to be considered in the quotation, the price quoted by the manufacturer is mainly the cost of the mould, the cost of proofing, the cost of materials and the cost of labor. Therefore, when we customized silicone products, we should not only look at the price, but also consider various factors, such as what we need, and a manufacturer’s quotation is higher, where is the higher, which manufacturer’s quotation is lower, in which aspects of the cost savings, etc.
