Is Expensive Injection Mold Tooling Derailing Your Projects? Try This Low Cost Alternative

Posted by Ryan Duffey on Mar 5, 2018

When trying to determine the viability of a project, one of the largest obstacles is the upfront capital outlay. The amount of money it costs to launch a project is one of the leading factors in determining whether an idea gets a chance to become reality. At The ERC, we believe that tooling costs should not stand in the way of developing great products. Our unique inexpensive tooling solution allows customers to see their ideas through to fruition. 

0016.jpgManufacturers often find themselves in a tough spot: pay high tooling prices or opt for cheap tooling and risk low quality parts? Many choose the latter, which usually ends in more spending to make up for bad parts.

We offer the best of both worlds: inexpensive tooling without sacrificing quality. By using our proprietary mold base technology, we are able to cut custom steel inserts and provide tooling to our customers with tremendous cost savings compared to the use of a standard mold base. Not only does this allow us to provide lower prices and shorter lead times, but we are able to do so in a manner that does not sacrifice quality. 

Think of it as the "no compromise" solution to prototype and bridge tooling. Our customers recieve the benefits of steel but only pay for a portion of the mold, resulting in significantly cheaper tooling price. And because the mold base is already complete, our toolmakers can construct the mold in a shorter amount of time.

Traditional injection mold tooling can be lengthy, costly and frustrating. But we're here to show you that quick, high quality and inexpensive injection molds really do exist. Our objective is to create a partnership and eliminate those pain points. We would be happy to provide estimated pricing and lead times for your project. Reach out to our team using this form.
