One of the most challenging aspects of planning for low volume production projects is the initial tooling cost. Building dedicated production tools for components that are expected to run limited volumes can be expensive. In some cases, the high cost of production tooling can terminate a project that could have had a lot of potential.
If you or your organization are struggling to afford tooling for low volume components, consider the Engineering Resource Center as your avenue to success. Using our proprietary modular tooling system, we are able to minimize the upfront capital required needed to get started on your project. Our engineers designed state of the art tooling systems that can produce the components you need in a timely and cost effective manner.
While many injection molders require dedicated tooling, The Engineering Resource Center will build custom inserts for your part. This saves both money and time for your organization. Our engineers will work with your team to ensure that we produce a part that is robust in design and production. Just because it is low volume does not mean it is not important, right?
Once we have completed the insert build and initial sample, we will store those inserts in our climate controlled warehouse so that we are able to use them whenever orders are placed. All that we ask is that you give us a little “heads up” when you need parts! Once we have the order in our system, we will respond with a delivery and date and parts will be shipped to your desired location.
Low volume should not equate to high price. At the Engineering Resource Center, we will do everything in our power to ensure that you receive high quality parts at a price that makes sense. We want to see your project succeed and we are here to ensure that even the lowest volume parts receive the highest amount of attention!
