Low-volume manufacturing is the way to go if you need quantities of finished parts ranging from a few hundred up to hundreds of thousands. If you only need a few parts or prototypes, you may want to consider one of our prototyping services. At molding-plastic.com, we work with you every step of the way, from initial project review and quotation to inspection and delivery. So contact our friendly team to get a free quote for your next project today.
What Is Low-Volume Manufacturing?
Low volume manufacturing is a specialized service offering full production-quality parts but in volumes usually limited to 100,000 pieces or fewer, depending on the process used. This is an increasingly popular option for many product categories, allowing for a more limited investment in tooling and materials while providing quick access to markets, rapid response to shorter product life cycles and as a bridge between initial prototypes and high-volume production.
Advantages Of Low-Volume Manufacturing
How can low-volume manufacturing help you and your business? Here are just some of the ways:
Create a bridge between a few prototypes and full-scale production
Reduce cost with no minimum orders, less expensive tooling
Provide rapid access to emerging markets
Respond quickly to shorter product life cycles
Allow for faster design changes
Lower financial exposure
Shorten production lead times
Low-Volume Manufacturing Services
Plastic Injection Molding
Plastic injection molding is ideal for making thousands of plastic part copies. We have a wide range of plastic material available.
Pressure Die Casting
Pressure die casting is used to make copies of cast parts in aluminum, zinc or magnesium. Molds are made in-house from H-13 steel using CNC machining and EDM/wire EDM.
Metal 3D Printing
We use the advanced Renishaw AM250 to offer 3D metal printing in titanium, aluminum, maraging steel and stainless steel.
Using our imported 3, 4 and 5-axis CNC machining centers, our skilled machinists can make CNC milled and turned parts in a range of materials.
