Low Volume Production

QUALITY AND RESPONSIVENESS FOR SHORT-RUN PRODUCTION
Low-volume manufacturing from 3D Printing On Demand Manufacturing helps customers reduce tooling costs, produce customized products, and bring a product to market quickly before higher-volume production molds are being completed.

Low-Volume Manufacturing Service

Through our low-volume manufacturing service, we can provide you with hundreds of thousands of parts so that you can take your product to market. If you only need a few parts or prototypes, you may want to consider one of our rapid prototyping services. At Start Prototyping, we work with you every step of the way, from prototyping to production.

Low-Volume Production

What is Low-Volume Production

In order to decide whether a low-volume production service is right for your production needs, it’s important to first understand exactly what low-volume production is. At the surface, the term is relatively self-explanatory. Low-volume production is a specialised service that offers mass-production quality parts in a small volume, generally limited to 100,000 parts or fewer – depending on the production technique used.

Although mass production is still the best choice for high-volume needs, low-volume production has become increasingly popular across a number of industries. Why is that? Well, low-volume production allows our customers to invest less time and money into tooling and materials, while also providing faster access to markets. Other advantages include more rapid response to shorter product life cycles, essentially acting as the critical step in between rapid prototyping and mass production.

It’s relatively easy to understand the basic definition low-volume production, but what are the benefits of this service? Let’s explore this question deeper in the following section.

Advantages of Low-Volume Manufacturing

Are you wondering how low-volume manufacturing can help your product go from concept to completion? There are a number of advantages to using this service that you may not know about. Here are the most prominent benefits.

  • By producing a small-run of parts or products, you will gain rapid access to emerging markets before the competition.
  • Compared to full-scale production, low-volume manufacturing will reduce the cost of tooling without requiring any minimum orders.
  • Low-volume manufacturing enables you to shorten overall production lead times, saving you time and energy when it comes to product development.
  •  If there’s an encounter with shorter product life styles, low-volume manufacturing allows you to respond quickly and iterate parts in a more optimal way.
  • Lower exposure to unnecessary financial expenditure, keeping you from breaking the bank on high-volume production.
  • Lastly, the quick turnaround that comes with low-volume manufacturing also allows for faster design changes, reducing costs and overall production time.
