Prototyping or Low-Volume Manufacturing?
Look below to find out which is right for your project? Still curious, chat with an engineer.
|Prototype||Low Volume Production|
Form, fit, and function parts
|Low Volume Production Parts|
Bridging Gap from Prototype to Production
|Ideally when…||Lifetime volumes are below 2,500 parts|
An affordable entry point for tooling is important
Part production is only needed for 1 year or less
|Part production is needed over multiple years|
Lifetime volumes exceed 2,500 parts
Lower part price is critical
Part production is needed over multiple years
