White Paper: An Engineers Guide to Low-Volume Injection Molding
Low-volume injection molding is an ideal manufacturing solution for many applications including on-demand production, bridge tooling, pilot runs and functional prototyping. However, there’s a widespread belief that low-volume injection molding is too expensive, that the molds created in a low-run paradigm won’t be able to yield many shots, that there are limited thermoplastic materials that can be used and, finally, that the piece-part price will be too high to return a profit.
Fortunately, many of these ideas are simply misconceptions, and with the right low-run production strategy in place, new manufacturing opportunities can lead to additional avenues for product development and production.
