Prototype Molding is a fast and cost-efficient way to carry out low-volume injection molding for a variety of types of plastic parts. The prototype molding process is commonly used in industrial settings for prototyping solutions or for diagnosing design issues, providing an easy introduction to mold making.
We typically create prototype molding by CNC machining and EDM. For a fast start to your project, use our plastic prototype molding services! For more information on prototypes, plastic injection molding, custom injection molding, insert molding, and more contact us today.
Fast processing: Prototype molding provides quick results, so the transition between development and production is very short.
Customization: The prototype molding process still allows for advanced customization of the mold.
Proof of concept/testing: Rapid prototyping facilitates practical real-world design testing and troubleshooting solutions. It also enables quick and precise production of new tooling that implements design changes and improvements.
Competitive pricing: The affordability of the prototype molding process translates into a positive impact on the bottom line for our customers.
Prototype molding is a fast and cost-efficient way to create a few prototypes in a selected material for function, aspect testing, and low-volume manufacturing to test out the market.
A: It depends on the size and geometry of the parts. For a common, the prototype moldings can be completed within 10 days.
There is no limit to material choice.
Normally, aluminum molds are good enough for 5,000 shots, while Steel P20 molds can last for 10,000 shots.
