Injection moulding can provide a range of lifetime part volumes—from as few as 10 to more than 10 million. We're a low-volume manufacturer, typically producing 10 to 10,000+ parts from aluminium moulds. We provide two injection moulding service options. One is best suited for those who need smaller part quantities often associated with prototyping and the other a good fit for those who require larger part quantities common in low-volume production.
25 parts to 10,000+ parts
Shipped in 1 to 15 days
Prototyping or On-demand Manufacturing?
While the moulds themselves are similar, part quantities, lifetime maintenance, quality documentation, and pricing vary depending on which service option is chosen. The right one depends on your project needs.
