Custom Fixture for Plastic Drinkware
Reducing the cost of these plastic cups comes down to using less material or different formulations, risking production of an inferior quality product whether perceived or actual. Creating a durable product with the lowest material costs allows a company to be competitive on price and also maintain margins. This is where materials testing becomes a critical phase in product design. Being able to accurately test existing products to create a baseline and compare those results to new product revisions is the best way to qualify new designs.
