Production!

(In which stainless steel meets hot ABS plastic, and iPhone 4 cases are born.)

We've finally entered production.   Our current production rate is 85 parts per hour, or approximately 2,000 parts per day.  Yes, the factory will crank 24x7 until the entire initial order is done.

While production is running now (first clear, then white, and finally black cases are being run), these shots are actually from a pre-production trial back in November.   They show the four parts to the mold (back, cavity and two sides), mounted in the press.  If you look closely, you can see the injection ports and extraction pins.
