Everyone wants to save money on manufactured parts. It sounds simple, but one of the easiest ways to reduce price-per-piece cost in injection molding is by increasing part quantity. That is because the initial upfront cost to design and machine the mold amortizes over more parts. At Protolabs, for example, up to 25,000 parts or more can be molded from the same tool.
However, maybe your molding project calls for only a handful of parts. No worries. Protolabs builds cost-effective molds for production quantities as low as 25 pieces, often within a few days of ordering.
