High Precision Rapid Injection Molding Prototyping

Rapid tooling is a process used for low-volume injection molding. This procedure can be used for various types of plastic parts. Once the aluminum or steel mold is created through the quick tooling process, it can be used to produce multiple copies of a component. Rapid tooling is used to create molded components for rapid prototyping. This procedure can be utilized to create components for rapid production.

With over 10 years of combined experience, our team of engineers and technicians are dedicated to creating the highest-quality rapid tooling solutions for our customers. Our experience speaks for itself. The team at TEAM MFG is well-equipped to handle your rapid tooling and mass production mold making requirements. If you are ready to start mass production, learn more out our injection molding services.


Economy of Scale

When compares with 3D printing, CNC machining, or vacuum casting, rapid tooling method is typically the most cost-effective choice for an order of fewer than 2,000 units.


Top Quality

TEAM MFG can produce high-quality injection moldings which are very close to mass production, or 100% matching the final production level by prototype mold.


Material Options

Aside from metal, a wide range of materials can also be used for injection molded parts. This benefit is very beneficial for rapid tooling.


Customizable Finishing

With rapid injection molding, we can create finished products that are suitable for different applications. These include smooth, glossy, and textured.


Benefits of Rapid Tooling

Rapid production tooling gives a number of advantages over other mothods of prototype production:


1. Fast processing: Prototype tooling provides quick results so the transition between development and production is very short.

2. Customization: The rapid tooling process still allows for advanced customization of the mold.

3. Rapid prototyping is a process that enables rapid evaluation and validation of a product or service. It can also be used to test and modify existing tooling.

4. Production speed helps minimize errors and provide a faster introduction to the market.

5. Competitive pricing: The affordability of the rapid tooling process translates into a positive impact on the bottom line for our customers.


The Rapid Tooling Process

Conventional tooling is often too expensive for small projects. Our rapid tooling service can provide a low-volume alternative. This process is commonly used for quick prototyping and diagnosing design issues.At TEAM MFG, we typically create rapid molds by CNC machining and EDM, though we also sometimes use additive methods such as 3D printing technologies.


Aluminum Mold or Steel Mold? Pros and Cons

Aluminum Mold Tooling

An aluminum mold is a great choice for creating prototypes since it can be easily cut and molded. This material can reduce costs by up to 25% compared to other mold materials. Heat-dissipating aluminum allows for a more dimensional stability in production processes. This material is also more energy-efficient than steel.It is important to note that aluminum is not as strong as steel, so it has a shorter life cycle and is less useful in high-volume processes.


Steel Mold Tooling

Steel is a sturdy, solid, high-quality tooling material,although it's a solid and high-quality material, steel is not suitable for most applications. However, it can be used to make molds that are designed to resist corrosion and abrasion. Despite its numerous advantages, steel is a more costly material to produce and requires a shorter turn around time to complete.


Rapid Tooling & Mold Making Projects

Rapid Tooling for Tail Light Project

Imagine trying to make 30 components in just two months. This is what our customer had in mind when they needed to test some tail lights.They needed a solution to get good quality moldings by their deadline and at a much lower cost than production tools.


In order to build a tail light, we needed to fabricate various components in a short time frame. Due to the assembly size, which was quite large, the customer wanted to test the materials before buying. As a result, prototype molding was the only solution. Contact us to learn more now!
