Product concept & design

Product concept & design is a critical step in the engineering product design process. This step identifies critiques and prioritizes design concepts that meet customer needs and specifications to derive the optimal design. Decisions made during early design stages can tightly constrain future options. Developing attractive product concepts requires fluid abstract thinking, creative imagination and innovation.

We innovate new product concepts using a creative team with diverse backgrounds, expertise and perspectives.

Modelling and Prototyping

When it comes to high-quality prototypes, there’s no one better for the job than the product development team at Mutual Industries, We are unmatched in our ability to rapidly create functional, highly-aesthetic and refined product modelling and prototyping using our in-house team and equipment, regardless of the stage of your idea.

Injection Moulding

Mutual processes plastics across a wide range of polymer families right from polyolefins to Engineering polyamides, styrenes and various special compounds to meet the precise needs of the parts using injection moulding technology.

We mould parts from sizes as small as a button to as large as the front hood of a heavy commercial vehicle addressing both the technical and aesthetic requirements of the products.

We pride ourselves in employing the most contemporary technology in our machines ranging up to 3200 tons across reputed brands in the industry.

We also have the expertise of manufacturing with long fibre injection molding, gas assisted injection molding, hybrid thermoplastic composite molding, injection compression molding.

Single & Twin Sheet Thermoforming - Vaccum and Pressure

Mutual brings in the advantage of heavy gauge thermoforming using single & twin sheet technology to open up whole new possibilities of products and applications across the industry segments.

The experience of over 5 decades of Styl’monde (France) in European Industry synergizes with the indigenous engineering and manufacturing capabilities of Mutual to form Mutual Stylmonde Pvt Ltd.

It is capable to produce components up to 3mts x 2mts with most contemporary technology installments.

The applications include

  • Automotive
  • Mass Transit (Buses & Railways)
  • Tractor & Farm Equipment
  • Earth Moving Equipment and Machinery
  • Medical Equipment & Machinery Covers
  • Ambulances
  • Material Handling (Customized Trays and Pallet solutions)
  • Signage (Advertising and Display)

Here are some potential advantages of single & twin sheet engineering thermoforming

  • Rapid Prototype Development
  • Fast Mould Development Cycles
  • Lower Tooling Costs compared to Injection Moulding and Blow Moulding
  • High inherent strength owing to twin wall structure
  • In Process Re-Inforcement possibilities like metal, honey comb structure, PU foam etc.

Typical materials which can be used in single & twin sheet engineering thermoforming include: HDPE, PMMA-ABS, ABS, TPO, PC, PC-ABS, ASA, ASA-ABS, TPU–ABS, PS, PSPE, HIPS.
