Benefits of Manufacturing Prototypes, Tooling & Production Parts Under One Roof

Posted by Austen Ballmann on Jul 23, 2018

Austen Bio Picture

Why have your prototype developed at one shop, tool built at another, and run production at another when you can keep it all under one roof? 

Working with an experienced one-stop shop, like The ERC, can speed up the entire product development process, eliminating errors and resulting in a lower overall project cost. We can not only develop and manufacture your prototype, but can also mold your low quantity production parts and build your production tool when your quantities go up.

Low Volume Production Is More Affordable Than You Think

Posted by Molly Skiba on Aug 8, 2017

Small volume production presents big problems for many OEM's. It is difficult for them to rationalize high capital expenditure for tooling that is required to produce low annual volumes of plastic replacement parts or to bridge the gap between prototyping and production. Luckily, we've come up with an affordable solution that doesn't sacrifice quality.

Optimize Your Prototype Build With Our Modular Tooling System

Posted by Molly Skiba on Mar 24, 2017

When The ERC was formed, our engineers realized 95% of all parts they received needed the same basic requirements for tooling. From those findings, the idea of a modular tooling system was born. We have designed several proprietary mold bases that now allow our toolmakers to build inexpensive mold inserts for most of the parts that come across their desks.
