There may be instances where your project demands multiple prototypes of the same part for more effective testing and validation in real-world scenarios. Thankfully, creating numerous identical parts need not be costly or time-consuming. Injection molding prototyping is a fitting solution in such cases. With a reliable service provider, you can receive up to 100,000 parts crafted from production-grade resins. Additionally, you can obtain a sturdy, custom mold that can be used for manufacturing final parts in the future.
Curious about how injection molding can be advantageous to you? Keep reading to understand how it can enhance your product development and prototyping procedures.
Introduce bridge tooling to your product development.
Product engineers and designers turn to bridge tooling (rapid tooling) to generate low-volume production-quality prototypes. However, it can take some time to finish. With injection molding, you can get end-use, production-grade prototypes at reduced costs and faster lead times.
Additionally, rapid tooling with injection molding prototyping is quicker and more cost-effective for building steel or aluminum injection molds. So, you do not have to spend much time on your prototyping process to validate your product before going into final production.
Create any part fast.
Injection molding is a precise manufacturing method that can mass-produce complex parts in various production-grade materials, such as glass, polymers, aluminum, and thermoplastics. Plus, the upfront cost is lower because the mold is reusable.
Create functional parts
When prototyping, your goal is to make a sample that will allow you to test your design and see how it will function and look in the real world. That way, you can determine if improvements are necessary. Injection molding prototyping allows you to achieve that by enhancing design and manufacturing fluidity. Plus, it lets you check if your design is suitable or ready for mass production.
