Low-Volume Manufacturing


Low volume manufacturing and end use parts

The manufacture of short series and final pieces with additive manufacturing technologies, vacuum casting or CNC machining, are effective solutions, technically and economically viable with respect to other manufacturing methods.

Low volume manufacturing and end use parts

The manufacture of short series (small batches) is highly recommended if the product should be on the market within a short period of time. Also, when it is a first version of a new idea or concept, or the evolution of a previous version.

The manufacturing of final pieces using additive manufacturing technologies allows to obtain pieces of polyamide (PA 12) without limitations regarding the geometry of the designs and without the need to invest in injection molds.

In both cases, the reduction of time and cost of manufacturing components is an advantage over other traditional manufacturing methods.

Our manufacturing services cover a wide variety of applications such as machining that is the preferred method when you need a specific material specification. FDM or Fused Deposition Modeling is the ideal method for complex 3D parts that require high-performance materials for extreme testing. Vac forming or thermoforming is used to produce large and small surfaced plastic parts. Bridge tooling is perfect for complex injection molded parts. Composites and fiber-reinforced parts add strength and durability to your prototype.
