What Is Low-Volume Manufacturing?
Low volume manufacturing is a specialized service offering full production-quality parts but in volumes usually limited to 100,000 pieces or fewer, depending on the process used. This is an increasingly popular option for many product categories, allowing for a more limited investment in tooling and materials while providing quick access to markets, rapid response to shorter product life cycles and as a bridge between initial prototypes and high-volume production.
Advantages Of Low-Volume Manufacturing
How can low-volume manufacturing help you and your business? Here are just some of the ways:
- Create a bridge between a few prototypes and full-scale production
- Reduce cost with no minimum orders, less expensive tooling
- Provide rapid access to emerging markets
- Respond quickly to shorter product life cycles
- Allow for faster design changes
- Lower financial exposure
- Shorten production lead times
