The Project

The project team works side-by-side with the client to ensure product functionality, marketability and usability are resolved through proof of concept prototypes. These are tested and refined to ensure all aspects of the solution are understood, key risks are identified and project goals are achieved.


inFact was involved in different areas:

- User insights, concept generation;
- Rapid prototyping to validate a range of configurations;
- Food safe material selection, dish washable;
- Safety, cutting surfaces;
- Industrial design.

The parts complex geometry required the use of a 4 part injection molding tool. Simulated flow molding was used to fine-tune the design and ensure correct molding.


inFact was asked to explore opportunities for increased brand recognition through the use of a fun apple cutting accessory.


The inFact team delivered Apple Splicer a quality product ready for market.
