Low Volume Production

Looking for a low volume production solution that fits your needs? Elimold offers a range of services that can fit your needs, from small quantities of parts… to medium volume production. Tell us what you want to achieve so we can guide you through the various processes and determine which ones will work best for you! From 3D Printing, Additive Manufacturing, Vacuum Casting, Injection Molding, CNC Machining, Metal Stamping or Rapid Prototyping, we are sure we can find a solution that fits your budget, timeline and production requirements!

Risk-free low-volume manufacturing for all your needs

When designers, engineers, and businesses think about product development, many think of prototyping and mass production as the primary goals. But sometimes, for those who need a small number of finished parts (from a few hundred to a few hundred thousand), low-volume manufacturing is the best option.
Elimold excels at low-volume manufacturing, offering a variety of technologies designed specifically for customers seeking prototypes or small quantities of parts, products, or assemblies. Low-volume manufacturing offers a level of customization that is not possible with store-bought parts. Colors can be matched to existing brands, and a variety of materials are available depending on the intended product use. 3D prototyping is great for testing form, fit, and function. Premium parts can also be used for marketing or to raise venture capital. Even if you don’t need a large number of parts, you can reduce your overall costs. From estimating to final inspection, we are in constant communication with you and your team to ensure that every expectation is not only met, but exceeded.

When Is Low volume Manufacturing Used

Lead Capabilities

Lead times for our low production service vary from project to project. In most cases, volumes of 50-5,000 parts can be completed or begin deliveries in our standard lead time of 4-6 weeks. Depending on part complexity and expedite options, specific lead times can be brought in or pushed out from our standard lead time. Regardless of what the lead time is, you will be made aware of it at the time of the quote so you will know when parts will land on your dock.

Our Capabilities

At Elimold, we achieve low-volume manufacturing with any one or a combination of two of four technologies namely CNC machining, Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing), Rapid Tooling and Polyurethane Vacuum Casting. Elimold has no minimum order requirements, and can deliver anything between 1 to 1000 units in as quick as 1 to 7 days, and can make low-volume parts that are accurate to 0.005” in dimensions and tolerances.

What Is Low-Volume Manufacturing?

Compared to batch production, low-volume manufacturing is a specialized service that offers full production-quality parts. But in volumes ranging from a single piece to a few thousand pieces. It’s an ideal choice for the project’s early stage. One of the best ways for moving from the concept stage through making low-volume prototyping is to verify design and research.

Many manufacturers don’t want to do low-volume production, regarded as a specialized service. because the whole system of their operation and supply chains are optimized for large volume production volumes that leverage economies of scale. Generally speaking, this seems to be the best way to ensure the lowest unit price. However, it can not suitable for low volume, but request a higher MOQ(Minimum Order Quantity) to proceed. and also mold tooling cost is expected to be high.

But for product developers, what they need is not high volume production for now, as the market may not accept it for the time being, and potential to be explored in the meanwhile, but the low volume would be an ideal option to move ideas and projects, from one part to one thousand? That’s where Elimold can help.

Advantages Of Low-Volume Manufacturing

Are you wondering how low-volume manufacturing can help your product go from concept to completion? How can low-volume manufacturing help you and your business?

  • By producing a small-run of parts or products, you will gain rapid access to emerging markets before the competition.
  • Compared to full-scale production, low-volume manufacturing will reduce the cost of tooling without requiring any minimum orders.
  • Low-volume manufacturing enables you to shorten overall production lead times, saving you time and energy when it comes to product development.
  • If there’s an encounter with shorter product life styles, low-volume manufacturing allows you to respond quickly and iterate parts in a more optimal way.
  • Lower exposure to unnecessary financial expenditure, keeping you from breaking the bank on high-volume production.
  • Lastly, the quick turnaround that comes with low-volume manufacturing also allows for faster design changes, reducing costs and overall production time.
