MAKE IT Factory Tour Workshop - For Hardware Entrepreneurs

Duro Labs is a proud Partner Sponsor for this fantastic MFG Day event

MAKE IT IN LA is hosting an inaugural Factory Tour Workshop. Open to entrepreneurs looking to learn more about manufacturing their products and leveraging the resources available in Los Angeles.

We'll start by visiting an Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) supplier in Chatsworth to learn how printed circuit boards are manufactured and tested. We'll also see how full box-build products are assembled from beginning to end. We'll understand the difference between full turn-key manufacturing and consignment.

In the afternoon, we'll return to Santa Monica to visit a state-of-the-art plastic injection molding supplier. We'll watch as mechanical CAD designs are translated into molds which are made from blocks of aluminum and steel. Learn how on-staff engineers review and optimize your custom part designs to be manufactured efficiently and cost effectively. We'll get to see parts made through the mold as plastic pellets are heated into liquid, shot into the mold, then cooled back down to create the final parts for assembly.
