Manufacturing A New Product from an Invention

Manufacturing A New Product from an Invention

The difference between an idea and a product is manufacturing. A great idea makes no money until it is produced and sold in multiple units. Understanding the options of how your idea can be manufactured can put additional money in your pocket. The knowledge can make it easier to license your idea. It can enable you to get a higher royalty. It is invaluable for finding investors. As your idea is engineered for manufacturing, you may find new ways to patent and protect it. Finally, knowing the manufacturing process for your invention can help you increase your idea's chances for market success. Read more...

Do you need help bringing your product to Market?
written by SMG Global , July 01, 2015

You have probably exhausted your last ounce of energy trying to figure out how to make something out of an idea. Many have, and many never will.

We have helped many people get started for a fraction of the cost for molds. Were talking 8500 compared to 30,000. That same savings all the way through process. It doesn't cost a thing to talk to our experienced Marketing and Manufacturing personnel. Relationships developed over decades and colleagues in the factory itself. No extra step or middle man.

It could be your dream come true or just a thought you had. The decision is yours.

To Manufacturing Representatives:

I have invented and patented a tool system that eliminates the need for ladders in many instances. It literally is "Ladder Free Technology." It requires no skill to operate, and empowers operators to install decorative hooks, hardware, and party decorations on any wall or ceiling without ever setting foot on dangerous ladders or step stools. This technology simply did not exist until I invented it, and we are currently developing additional patents to occupy every possible permutation. However, my Mechanical Engineer believes the current art is the only truly viable design.

We have introduced a starter kit to several focus groups and the system is enormously popular with young professionals; particularly single women living in apartments. A starter kit contains everything an apartment dweller or home owner would need to decorate and install anything on their ceilings and walls, and it could fit in a candy box. We have demonstrated the system to several major north American tool distributors at the National Hardware Show, and they were out of their seats when I installed swag hooks and eye bolts without a ladder - in just seconds...
I have well developed SL prototypes that are fully functional, and the system is non-durable. The retail designs could be Injection molded or investment casted. Additionally, it is an infinitely expandable and scalable system.

Ladder falls cause approximately 113 deaths and 15,000 serious injuries each year. My tool system will dramatically reduce those numbers, and its use could eventually be mandated by insurers in some instances.

I am seeking a basic licensing agreement with upfront compensation for my efforts to date. I am also very willing to work on a contract basis with the licensee to insure the system's success. My tool system is not a gimmick. It is a well-developed tool system that works incredibly well. It has never been marketed or sold. I am a Product Developer, I.T. professional, and Licensed Electrical Contractor. I hold degrees in those fields and have decades of manufacturing, construction, I.T., and marketing experience. Finally, I have had a full team of professionals supporting this project from the beginning.

Your company could be the one (in partnership with us) to introduce "Ladder Free Technology" to the world.

I look forward to meeting with you.

Regards,

Christian Chase

I'm an engineer, designer and manufacturer
written by blah , April 01, 2015

So many people with so many ideas but no contact info.

There are a lot of people with no investment money. That's understandable. However, producing a product from an idea costs money. As a product developer, I expect "the idea person" to have enough faith in their idea that they are willing to invest their own money. Don't expect a significant percentage of profits if you are bringing $0 to the table.

Finally, if you're trying to sell yourself (your idea), use proper grammar and spell check. You will be taken more seriously.

Good luck!

pinata-pole
written by Juan Martinez , March 29, 2015

My name is Juan Martinez, I am patent pending. At this point we are seeking to define the largest possible potential manufacturing base. This includes producing the pinata-pole where applicable, in different materials, styles, sizes and shapes to better accommodate various market requirements. Though the pinata-pole is not currently in production, it's characteristics are not unlike existing production methodology for similar products and should not require new technology.
Please take the time to look over my webpage

Someone please help me find a manufacturer.

Manufracturing consultant
written by Mr. Kelly , March 29, 2015

I know some of you are looking for manufacturers or someone to help with prototyping.

Just a thought. One reason it's tough to find someone willing to help you is because you are just a person with an idea. Ideas are free, it's the business execution and distribution plan that makes your idea worth investing in. (Or in their case, investing time). So rather than tell people about your idea and how green you are. Tell them what your distribution plan is and how you plan to be able to move however many hundreds of thousands of them. If you don't have that plan, take a step back and ask yourself if you really should be pursuing the invention.

I do freelance product development and manufacturing sourcing as a business. People like us are very very busy people. It's not uncommon for us to take a chance on someone and hope that with our help in refining your product and finding a manufacturer for it. That you will be able to focus your time on the business side. But admittedly, it ends in a huge waste of everyone's time because the person behind the invention never had the ability to take the product to beyond selling retail on a website.

Hope that doesn't sound too callous. But it is the truth. If you have a great idea, start doing your research into the market, distribution plan, prices, competition, etc.

If you do have a plan, let me know. If I agree with you and have confidence you can actually make the product big. Then I may do all the development and sourcing and importing and logistics and packaging for a royalty on the back end.

If you don't have a plan, I might still be able to answer manufacturing questions and give some pointers. I like to watch people succeed. And too often people fail because of something simple that had someone who knows told them at the beginning, the direction could have changed to a winner.

Invention
written by Matt Dalek , March 17, 2015

It is so interesting to think about coming up with an idea and actually being able to take it to the next level. I can't imagine seeing one of my ideas turned into solid reality. This makes it seem totally achievable, though. If I could come up with an idea and find the right fabrication company, I could have a real object that I can say I created.

New Idea for an existing Game
written by Beniamino Lucciola , February 16, 2015

I have developed a new idea for a very popular existing game. The existing game is played all over the world by millions of people. My idea adapted from this game will make it available for many more people to play. It will be great for schools, colleges, YMCA's, camps, etc. I had contacted a group that supposed to help people get their ideas developed, etc. But they charge fees I cannot afford. Being an old disabled veteran my funds are limited. Any help out there?

taking humans to next era
written by ron bonomo , October 08, 2014

Hello, i am ron bonomo. actor, writer, inventor and much more. i have several inventions. but my most revered are my ideas that will take human kind to the next step in our ways of life. i have invented an electric motor like no other. the motor puts out more power than an equivalent fuel motor, as well as conversions. this motor will take us to non fuel power. yes i am talking about electricity for home, business and cities. Self powered generator. but that is not the brunt. i simply invented that to solve a problem with my other inventions. which my other inventions will allow space exploration a reality. imagine being able to mine meteors instead of our planet. that is only one benefit from space exploration. my lift and thrust system uses no fuel only electricity, hince the invention i mentioned already. i have inventions for weapons and shielding as well. but i need help. prototype for my inventions are far from my budget. i made prototypes of them before, when i was in school and had access to there materials and equipment. but i disassembled them so noone could steal my ideas, once i saw how much a patent was. so if any funders wants to work with me and bring humans into the next erra you can e mail me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Manufacturer
written by Richard Donas , October 18, 2012

I spent 2 years developing a specialized welding tool. I didn't realize the mistake I made when I sent my design to several overseas factories for a quote. After speaking with a gentleman from L.R.Caldwell International,Inc here in the USA, I realized how little the NDA is valued.
Through their insight, I quickly learned to develop a relationship prior to handing a design over to anyone.

They have built 50 units for me while insisting I first test the market prior to over investing in this design. They also helped re-designed my product to make it cheaper to product and more appealing to my customers.
