The toy making process involves several steps to ensure the production of safe and high quality. Below is the overview of the process step by step.
Design: The toy designers create concepts and drawings for the new toys, considering factors like functionality, safety and performance to the consumers.
3D Digital Sculpting: 3D sculpting (also called digital sculpting) is when an artist sculpts a 3D object on a computer with material similar to digitized clay.
3D Printing Prototypes: 3D printing is a prototyping process whereby a real object is created from a 3D CAD product design. A digital 3D CAD product design is saved in STL file format and then sent to a 3D printer.
Prototype Painting: Prototype painting is applying the spray coating of paint to the parts to achieve the desired look, color, and finish for the final product.
Tooling Making: The process of designing and manufacturing tools, dies, molds, and other equipment used in the production of parts or components.
Injection: Injection molding is the process of making custom plastic parts by injecting molten plastic material at high pressure into a metal mold.
Spraying & Painting: This is the simplest and most cost-effective painting process used to add color or character to plastic injection molded parts. Once the paint and mask are completed, there are many options for applying the paint. All types of spray guns used for other materials are acceptable on plastic. Conventional air spray guns have always been an industry standard.
Pad Printing: Pad printing is one of the favorite ways to paint a plastic product. To get paint quickly and accurately applied to plastic parts, pad printing is one of the cheaper methods. To understand this process, imagine a large rubber stamp that picks up ink from a printing surface and then presses it onto the part.
Assembly: The process of putting together various components or parts to create a finished product, requires skilled labor, effective coordination, and adherence to quality standards.
Packing: The process of packaging a product for storage, shipping, and sale. It involves selecting appropriate materials, such as boxes, bags, or containers, and arranging the product in a way that ensures its safety and integrity during transportation and handling.
Quality Control: A process by which entities review the quality of all factors involved in production.
Storage: The process of safely storing and organizing goods or materials for transportation or future use. It is an essential aspect of logistics and supply chain management to ensure smooth operations and efficient handling of goods.
Shipment: Efficient cargo shipment involves careful planning, coordination, and compliance with transportation regulations to ensure the safe and timely delivery of goods.
It is important to note that the specific toy making process may vary depending on factors such as the type of toy, materials used, and manufacturing techniques employed by different companies.
