PODCAST: 7 Questions your Supplier asks in the Quoting Process

3 Aug 2022

Want to quote a new casting project or thinking about re-quoting an existing part? The quoting process can be confusing, especially if you are shopping around at multiple foundries.

Here’s what you can expect. For your supplier to give you the most accurate quote possible, they will ask about…

  • 1. Background & End Use
  • 2. New vs Existing Part
  • 3. Timeline
  • 4. Design Modifications
  • 5. Mold Tooling (FEA)
  • 6. Pouring/Foundry Requirements
  • 7. Machining/Secondary Requirements

(and if they don’t ask these questions – that’s a red flag!)
