Short Run Machining

Our short-run production allow you to create new prototypes or enhance and re-engineer current designs with a quick turnaround and high precision.We also produce gages, fixtures and tooling for research and development projects while working closely with our customers.

You Design, We Machining

Do you have a complex part that you need for prototyping or short-run production?
Good news! Elimold has the resources to support you in manufacturing and refining your parts for mass production. Our unique custom cell manufacturing and high or low volume machining capabilities allow us to provide world-class production to a wide range of industries. Our processes and equipment combine to create an efficient workflow that minimizes downtime and improves our already fast turnaround times. By utilizing the wide range of CNC mills and CNC lathes we have, we can provide lean manufacturing for long or short run machining projects.

Prototyping and Short-Run Production

As a versatile machine shop serving the medical, manufacturing and semiconductor industries, Elimold offers prototyping and short-run CNC machining services. Our capabilities include milling, turning and drilling a wide variety of materials including steel, stainless steel, plastics, ceramics and composites. Any component that can be manufactured in production can be prototyped by experienced machinists in our fully equipped tool room. For single or low-volume work, parts can be machined on manual equipment to avoid any specialized tooling costs. We can manufacture parts up to 60 inches in length and 30 inches in width, depending on geometry and machining methods.
SURFCAM Velocity software can be used to generate a 3D model of the design prior to manufacturing, while CMM equipment can verify all dimensional tolerances after machining. Dimensional tolerances can be maintained to within ±0.0002″ as specified. Our entire team is dedicated to providing our customers with high-quality parts, fast turnaround and personalized customer service. Local delivery is available, and custom stocking programs can be designed based on customer needs.

Our Services

Do you have a product idea, and need a small number manufactured. If so, Elimold can take your low volume production needs from design to delivery in a shorter timeframe than most other custom manufacturers. Our multi-talented staff of machinists, welders, assemblers, heat treat specialists and painters will collaborate with you to make sure your custom fabrication and short run production projects are completed seamlessly and on time.

Benefits of Short-Term Machining

Supply chain is the most common problem that most customers report right now. From raw materials to finished products, if the manufacturer is not well coordinated, it is easy for the product to lag behind the competition to market.
When we work on smaller jobs, we usually have raw materials available and can start working faster. This reduces lead time and gets the part to you faster. Getting parts and fulfilling customer orders as quickly as possible is always a top priority. People don’t want to wait weeks or months to receive their orders.
Short-term CNC machining also enables you to make small changes to the part. You may want to start with a small order for project V1 and then leave room for future adjustments. Prototyping helps you refine and verify the design so that your brand can release the right product. It is quick and easy to make small adjustments with CNC machining.
3D printing can be used for some prototypes, but it is not ideal when you need metal parts or parts with tight tolerances.
Short-term jobs are often used for prototype parts, products that can be customized by the end user, or small companies that do not need a large supply of stock.

Why Choose Us?

Short-run production refers to the production of machine parts and critical components in small or limited batches. In contrast, long-run production refers to the mass manufacturing of components using CNC machining and rapid CNC prototyping services.
Regardless of which of the two production procedures fits your industrial needs, Elimold is ready to help you maintain an efficient workflow through accurate and timely production, and guarantee fast turnaround times to minimize your downtime.
We have decades of experience providing precision machining services to customers from the United States to Europe: using CNC turning, rapid prototyping for CNC production, and thorough CMM inspections to ensure accuracy and precision in every product we manufacture.
Whether your specific needs require a single prototype, a batch of custom-designed components, or batches of thousands, our skilled technicians are ready to use their experience in the field to ensure that your large or short-run projects benefit from reduced shipping times.
