Risks and challenges

As a mechincal engineer, I, John, have designed and developed products, procured tooling, produced products, and patented designs. In particular, I have designed and brought plastic parts to production many times. The company we have selected to build our custom-made parts is a company with whom I already have a relationship and whom I trust.

The other components to be made are "off the shelf": plastic tubes, plastic bottles and plastic caps.

Tooling is due at our plastic molder during June 2014. (If we reach our $15,000 stretch goal, we will expedite the tooling.) Once the tooling is at the molder, we will be "tuning-in" the tool to adjust for variations in plastic shrinkage and warpage.

The tool is designed to "strip" one of the parts off of a core. This is to keep the cost of the tool lower. Whereas the plastic supplier is confident the part will indeed "strip" off of the core, if it does not, my back-up plan is to build a collapsible core which will solve this problem. This would cause a delay of about two months.

All parts will be made in the United States by local suppliers.
