A co-creative process
Replace existing raw materials or create new opportunities with recycled materials.
In a few steps, we put you on the road to a circular production process:
1. An exploratory talk
Do you have a circular idea, question or challenge? Ecoo thinks along with you. In an exploratory meeting, we look together at whether your new product or existing application can be made from recycled material.
2. Feasibility check
In a feasibility check, the demand is weighed up according to the number of expected print runs, the cost, the deadline and the technical requirements. Once the expectations are right, we move on to the next step.
In this phase, we look for the answers to some crucial questions:
The right raw material is selected on the basis of a few technical questions.
- What requirements must the end product meet?
- Does it have to be particularly strong?
- Is it a thick-walled or thin-walled product?
Product design and production technique
Taking into account the properties of recycled material, adjustments are sometimes needed in the product.
A product designer helps to optimise the existing design to meet all technical requirements.
The production technique is also important. Depending on the number of print runs and the chosen raw material, we look at which production technique best suits the demand: injection, intrusion, extrusion or 3D printing.
4. Prototyping & testing
Based on the choices made, Ecoo advises on the creation of a first prototype. In it, we do tests on a small scale before developing the final product.
When there is no more room for improvement, the mould or product is ready for large-scale development. Depending on the needs, a project can be followed up to series production.
All advantages - working together with Ecoo
Count on circular expertise
We have a great deal of experience in recycling waste plastic. We use this knowledge in our own products and share it with others who want to make less of more.
Go for recycled raw materials
We work exclusively with recycled materials and know best how to turn those properties into benefits. Choose from different types and find the material that best suits your requirements.
Together towards the same goal
Circular thinking is a process.
Ecoo guides you step by step, from idea to final product. Where our role stops, we offer suitable partners to help realise your product.
