ChirpOn LLC developed a cat collar that could potentially save the lives of millions of birds. The estimated 1 billion birds killed by house cats every year is believed to be a main contributor to 314 endangered bird species in North America alone.
The special colorant used in the ChirpOn Cat Collar for Birds reflects ultraviolet light. Bird eyes are especially sensitive to ultraviolet, so the collar allows birds to see the stalking cat before it's too late!

The Green Cup of Maine and Casco Bay Molding (SiliconeGear) combined to develop a superior Healthcare-Grade Class VI Silicone Rubber menstrual cup. Reusable for 10+ years, these menstrual cups offer an alternative to traditional feminine hygiene products, and won't end up in a landfill.
Do you know what your menstrual cup is made from?
Working closely with Kate and her design firm to adjust the silicone "Kupp" wrap design in the prototyping stage allowed for better silicone to glass fit and functionality in the final product. Also, the proper gate design and location on silicone parts with radically different wall thicknesses is key to optimizing material flow and molding good parts.
Top & Derby's Chatfield Cane was a successful Indiegogo campaign providing cane users with an elegantly rugged cane comprised of a wood shaft, silicone ovemolded handle, and TPE foot. Being able to produce both the cane's silicone overmolded handle and TPE foot in one location at our factory assures better deliveries and less hassle.
The devil is in the mold details when overmolding cast AL parts, in this case the handle's core, because of the very tight tolerances on silicone molds.
Deep draw parts (4inch - 10.16cm) frequently require air ejection features and subtle part design changes - radiused corners, draft, etc- for reliable de-molding of cosmetically acceptable silicone parts.
Brook Fishing Equipment invented the "Outta the Box" and Brook Tackle Box fly storage systems. Both utilize silicone mats that perform exceptionally better then foam fly mats.
Calculating silicone shrinkage during mold design is critical, especially when die cutting slits into a silicone product. Thin to thick parts can also present silicone flow challenges, and having an in-house mold making shop means quick turn around during mold debugging.
The Armaband hands-off self defense bracelet is stylishly designed for everyday wear, and always ready to deploy.
"Strike Hard. Get Away. Capture DNA."
Starting as a five-component prototype, the Armaband was re-designed into a single silicone overmolded part, greatly reducing materials, lead times and assembly labor.
By offering the complete product development cycle under one roof- from designing parts & building molds to launching into full blown production- you will reduce risks of working with multiple vendors, improve time to market & lower costs.
Mold making and product development investment averages between $5,000 to $19,950 depending on complexity.
