Low-volume Production

Risk-Free Low-Volume Manufacturing for All Your Needs

Bringing a new product into the market or bringing an old one into a newer market? Low-volume manufacturing is quick and affordable solution geared at mitigating product development risks associated with introducing new products to new markets. Unlike the high risk and high capital requirement associated with high-volume production that can run into hundreds of thousands or even million units, low-volume manufacturing is a popular philosophy in general manufacturing that has helped several new products navigate the risky journey of idea to product quickly and affordably without compromising on quality standards.

Additional Resources & FAQs

Generally speaking, low-volume manufacturing umbrellas all production volumes that fall within the range of one to ten thousand units.

There’s no standard technique or general process for low-volume manufacturing. However, CNC machining, Polyurethane vacuum casting and 3D printing can be used to deliver low-volume quantities.

Plastic, Metals, Rubber-like and Elastomeric materials can all be used for low-volume manufacturing solutions.

Factors like speed, cost, and ability to capture new markets faster are all advantages of deploying low-volume solutions. Another benefit lies in the ability to detect design or product faults before embarking on mass tooling and production.

Low-volume solutions like CNC machining, 3D Printing and Vacuum casting have quick leadtimes and can deliver prototypes and finished parts within 24 hours to 7 days.
