The technical performance of parts and materials is the responsibility of the customer, which assumes all liabilities associated with the use of the parts. The customer is responsible for all testing and approval prior to their use of the parts. Design characteristics which are deemed by ICOMold to be the cause of post-molding part distortion, warp or sink are the responsibility of the customer to correct through part design.
Part Use & Destination
The customer is responsible for complying with all applicable U.S. laws or laws of whichever country and/or locality said parts are associated with the direct or indirect use of the part(s) and the ultimate destination. The customer also certifies that the 3D CAD data being submitted to ICOMold WILL NOT produce products that violate United States firearms laws or laws of any other international governments. ICOMold cannot be held responsible or liable for violations of United States firearms laws or laws of any other international governments that are the result of the manufacturing, delivery or use of any product that was a provided design by the customer.
All tooling is based on the customer-supplied 3D CAD data which supersedes any conflict with 2D dimensional or geometric data. First Article quality reports on three samples for the customer-indicated critical dimensions are provided at no charge. Full dimensional layouts, CMM reports, or a higher number of samples will be quoted as needed. All tooling associated with producing the desired parts not built for export remains the property of the customer until discarded. ICOMold will maintain and store the customer’s tooling at no cost for a period of two years of inactivity. After two years of inactivity, the mold(s) will be discarded unless the customer initiates financial arrangements with ICOMold to protect and store the mold beyond the two-year period of inactivity. All tooling will only be used to make parts for the original customer or their authorized associate during the period.
Part Design Iterations
ICOMold will modify tooling to support design changes at a quoted rate. ICOMold reserves the right to determine the suitability of the mold modification vs. making a new mold. A set-up fee, based on the injection machine size required, is applied for each part run or tool sampling resulting from a customer-driven design change to the mold. Changing or adding plastic resins or colors results in additional trialing and approval samples for which the customer will be quoted. Each color change during a parts run will incur a fee.
CNC Manufactured Prototype Parts
CNC manufactured parts are based on the customer-supplied 3D CAD data which supersedes any conflict with 2D dimensional or geometric data. CNC manufactured parts are milled from a single block or multiple blocks of molded resin and they can be used for form, fit, and function. However, they are not intended as replacements for injection molded parts.
A quotation or “quote” is valid for a period of 45 days from the date quoted, unless ICOMold informs a customer within this period, but prior to placing an order, that the quote is void. If the quote is voided, ICOMold reserves the right to issue a revised quote or decline to quote. It is the responsibility of the customer to alert ICOMold to all design changes that have been made after the quoted design state. Acceptance of an order without such notification does not prevent ICOMold from changing the price for the order. It is at ICOMold’s discretion whether to accept, re-quote or decline an order with design changes. If ICOMold deems necessary, the original quote will be voided and ICOMold will issue a new quote for the revised part design, or will decline to quote. Any feature such as inserted features, over-molding, texturing, text, etc., or material not clearly identified in the customer’s request for quote, and not specifically stated on the quote, is not included in the quoted price. Furthermore, a part may be quoted with the assumption that design flaws that are not conducive to injection molding will be corrected prior to mold design. If moldability flaw(s) are present and identified during any time of processing the order, the customer will be informed. If the customer agrees, the design changes will be made, otherwise the order will be voided and the prorated down payment will be returned. ICOMold will provide design change recommendations when the customer design is not conducive to industry standard and/or ICOMold molding techniques. All quotes are FOB Shenzhen China. All shipping costs and costs related to importing will be paid by the customer and are not included in the quote. ICOMold will quote estimated shipping cost upon request.
The tooling and part quote is based on the part size and weight listed in the quote. The customer is responsible for verification of the parts listed in the quote conforming with the customer’s part design.
ICOMold assumes no responsibility or liability for the design or designs of the products that are the result of this transaction. All designs are a result of the customer providing 3D CAD designs to ICOMold for production of the customer’s goods whether they are customer-designed or a customer-approved design the customer had commissioned a third party to produce.
The customer will not hold ICOMold responsible or liable for materials selected by the customer for production by ICOMold. Although ICOMold’s representatives may make recommendations as to which materials may be the better choice for production of a customer’s goods, ICOMold and/or its representatives will not express, imply or choose what materials are to be used in production of the customer’s goods; the choosing of said materials is solely the responsibility of the customer for their goods. The customer is responsible for their own due diligence and research as to which materials and designs for their goods is best to comply with government regulations regarding health and safety, CE, FCC, FDA, FMCSA, ISO, NSF, UL, and USP requirements, strength, durability and/or flexibility, or other regulations either not mentioned or implied in the present or future. This also includes specialized materials purchased by ICOMold at the customers request as well as specialized materials provided to ICOMold by the customer for use in the customer’s goods.
