Producing an injection moulded accessory using Rapid moulds
Am not very clear on the technologies with injection moulding, however, I am looking at relatively small scale production, anything around 1k to 10k. Dose anyone have any recommendation for companies based in the Europe. I have looked at manufacturing this in the UK and its just a bit to expensive. Per product costs was too high to scale up.
For the AL MUD insert Protomold is competitive and responsive. They can get your parts across the pond overnight. You will have to absorb the cost until the volumes climb.
For small quantities, I have 3 solutions in mind to reduce your cost:
- prototype mould
- aluminium mould
- as said Lily Chang, the use of an old mould base
Good luck for your project.
