What is the future of Low Volume Injection Molding?

Low volume manufacturing will help. Low volume manufacturing has been a practice for many industries. Low volume manufacturing makes products in small quantities for trials and market tests before mass production. In this article, we will take a closer look at the low volume injection molding and how it relates to the future industry….

The Commonly Used 4 Different Types of Rapid Prototyping

Rapid prototyping is the fast method to fabricate a physical part, model or assembly by CAD design. The parts, models or assembly is usually made by additive manufacturing which is well known as 3D printing. There are two types of prototypes: high-fidelity prototypes and low fidelity prototypes. There are several rapid prototyping technologies….

What is Low-volume Injection Molding

Injection molding a useful production method which enable manufacturers to produce identical parts with consistent quality and characteristics in high volume. In injection molding process, a pressurized nozzle shoots molten plastic into a metal mold to make the parts cool and be ejected quickly. When the parts are ejected, the press closes…

How Much Does High Pressure Die Casting Tooling Cost

Die casting process is relatively inexpensive because of its high levels of repeatability. Initial tooling cost is high but it saves money during the process. It also reduces material waste, mistakes, and post-cast machining. So, how much does high pressure die casing tooling cost? Aluminum sand cast tooling costs around USD$500 to USD$7,500 depending on…
