Low Volume Injection Molding

Low volume injection molding is ideal for part design validation, bridge tooling, pilot runs, low volume production, and bridge production quantities. It is a reliable option not only during development but at all stages of a product’s life cycle because quality parts can be supplied quickly and cost-effectively.

Stebro plastic molding company is redefining manufacturing with our Pre-Production process. Our low volume injection molding are monitored and controlled so you can be assured of all aspects of injection mold design and build. Our tooling and injection molding allows you to have parts in a short time frame. We understand the importance of delivery time of low volume plastic parts, so we will provide your plastic parts quickly and inexpensively.

Low Volume Injection Molding Process

Our On-Demand Injection Molding leverages over one decade of knowledge. We aim to operate as an extension of our customers’ team, helping them optimize the way they quote and produce low volume plastic parts.

50 to 1000+ Injection Molded Parts

For prototype molds we typically use Aluminum, S50C or pre-hardened P20 tool steel to make the core, cavity and ejector plates which are assembled into a Master Unit Die base. We can add custom cooling circuits, hot tips, and other refinements to aid with the production of technical resins or complex geometries. For polished or high-gloss parts, we use NAK 80 or S136H, a polishing grade of stainless steel. Low volume production of injection molded parts is ideal for 50 pcs up to ten thousands parts of varying complexity. This option offers medium tooling and part price.

10,000 to 100,000+ Injection Molded Parts

For pilot production molds we typically use pre-hardened P20H tool steel or NAK-80 stainless tool steel to make a complete mold, which is, in effect, a full production tool without full hardness. All of our pilot production or ‘bridge tooling’ molds are built to local standards. Medium volume injection molding tooling are ideal for thousands to hundreds-of-thousands of parts of varying complexity. This option incurs a higher tooling cost but a much lower part cost.

100,000+ Injection Molded Parts

These are full production injection mold tools. Molds are to standards. Typically up to 8 cavity molds, maximum injection mold press size 500 tons, steel type P20, H13, NAK 80. Open and shut, multi-slide, unscrewing etc. are all available. If you have a requirement for full production molds where the molds will be sent to you, please contact us.

Low Volume Injection Mold Manufacturing

To speed up the mold manufacturing process without sacrificing quality, you need the right technology. We use UG to design and manufacture molds. The 2K Mould manufacturing was done toally according to the 3D mold design. For manufacturing the 2K mold, we use different manufacturing machines such as Mikron CNC, AgieCharmiles EDM, Sodick Slow Wire Cut machine, Grinding Machine and Gun Drill Machine. After machining all the components, we have to measure the key size on the CMM machine. It is very important to avoid flash at the parting surface.
