ADC ships via UPS Ground Shipping unless other shipping arrangements have been pre-arranged by the customer. Please indicate if part should be returned when each quote is approved. If not specified, parts are stored for a period of 90 days from the project invoice date, then recycled or discarded. Customer is responsible for return shipping costs, which are not included in original quote cost. Shipping cost will be added to invoice unless a personalized shipping account number is provided. ADC will return parts in the same packaging that they were received whenever possible. MOLDED PART SHIPMENTS

Customer is responsible for all shipping costs. Carrier and account number must be provided to ADC.


Reverse engineering projects may involve coating of part(s) to optimize scanning surface. A removable white primer paint/talc (Magnaflux SKD-S2 Developer) is generally applied to parts prior to scanning. Unless otherwise disclosed, ADC expects parts to arrive ready for inspection. Ready means free of dirt, grease, or oil. Failure to provide clean parts may result in a delay or extra costs or both.


All Rapid Prototype (RP) parts are perceived to be for conceptual use, and not in a production environment. ADC is not responsible for part failure due to any use beyond the previously described intention. Material spec sheets are available upon request.


ADC requires Customer orders to be full case quantities. There is a $25.00 handling fee for orders that don’t meet case quantities or the total part cost under $40.00 Shipping and handling charges are extra and not included in determining a minimum order. Quoted prices are valid for uninterrupted mold runs of a single color in a specified material for the amount of each individual order accepted. Small runs are subject to a set-up fee as specified on the quote. Prices for portions of any order undelivered after 30 days of shipping the first portion are subject to change by the amount of our costs as affected by Federal, State or local legislation, increases in the cost of materials, basic labor rates, and freight rates. Orders are not subject to cancellation, change, reduction in amount or suspension of deliveries except with our consent and upon terms which indemnify us against loss. In absence of instructions to the contrary, we reserve the right to run blanket orders in their entirety and at our convenience, holding complete parts in stock for the customer’s release. Should changes in the parts thus held be made, the customer will still bear the responsibility to pay for such stock at the agreed upon price.


Claims for shortages or rejections for defects must be made in writing within 30 days after date of invoice or no consideration will be given thereto. Merchandise shall be returned only upon our written authorization. We accept no responsibility for merchandise returned without authorization.

Molds stored at ADC and inactive for more than three years will be considered obsolete and may be disposed of after Customer’s written approval to destroy. ADC warrants its products to be of good workmanship and conformity with production samples as approved by customer. ADC makes no warranty, express or implied, except that the goods sold under this agreement shall conform to the samples approved by the customer, and the customer assumes all risk and liability resulting from the use of the goods, whether used singly or in combination with other goods. In the event that the customer furnishes the material, such material must be delivered FOB at ADC with all charges prepaid and subject to ADC’s approval for design. Materials furnished by the customer must be uniform, accurate and in the event that that such material doesn’t come up to specification and must be re-operated or inspected, such costs should be charged to the customer.
