Go All The Way With The ERC (Low Volume Capable)

Posted by Katie Evans on Jul 26, 2016

Low-volume production allows for flexibility in customization and design changes, real-world testing, and cost savings.

Whether you need a few hundred or thousands of parts every month, the Engineering Resource Center’s low-volume tool manufacturing can help you. Engineering Resource Center’sERC-Closeup-Tools.jpg low volume injection molding is great for products with short life-cycles or products that will not have a need for high volumes. Our low-volume production also means immediate design feedback, long-term price savings, and the opportunity to bridge the gap between the prototype and full-scale production phase.

Advantages of Low-Volume Production with the ERC

Immediate Design Feedback

Our highly skilled design engineers provide design feedback and assistance, which speeds up the process and results in better and easier-to-manufacture products. Our experts are able to remove potential visual or performance defects before the first parts are produced. 

Long-Term Price Savings

The Engineering Resource Center’s highly skilled tool makers are experienced in handling single and multi-cavity designs. By utilizing our Modular Tooling System (MTS), you can have your parts quickly and without design compromises. Jumping directly into high-volume manufacturing can lead to poorly designed injection molded parts, which cause challenges and higher costs down the road. The ERC Engineers design parts to the best injection molded standards, saving you time, money, and stress in the full-scale production.

Bridge-Design Production

Many customers want to bridge the gap between the prototyping stage and full-scale production in order to test the product and the market. In other words, as product volumes slowly increase, you have an opportunity to make adjustments to achieve further cost savings while improving product quality. By building the prototype tool to a high standard, thousands of parts can be produced, satisfying your production needs until a multi-cavity mold is complete.  

Our low-volume injection molding allows for more reasonable lead times, long term price savings, and the flexibility to run thousands of parts with specific material for your production. Contact the Engineering Resource Center for any further questions you may have about low-volume production or our tool-making process.
