ADVANTAGES OF LOW VOLUME PRODUCTION
3D printing is adaptable to low volume manufacturing and reduces the investment for scaling associated with traditional processes. The main advantages for using this leading-edge technology are:
- Individually customize hundreds of parts or products in a single run
- Test products quickly, make multiple design iterations at the same time
- Launch products at the lowest cost in small quantities before making a substantial tooling investment
- Stay ahead of competition by bringing your products and ideas to market first
- Produce complex parts reducing assembly time.
- Produce more durable, complex, and lightweight end use parts and systems
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Is Low Volume Production and its benefits ?
Low-volume manufacturing techniques include low-volume production as a subset of manufacturing. When something has been manufactured in low volumes, it usually means that little to no money was spent on engineering or tooling.
The units of order involved for it to be regarded as low volume production varies from industry to industry. It could be as little as 100 or as many as 1000. This threshold can vary depending on the company. Low volume manufacturing techniques are frequently employed for one-off orders or limited runs of products with inexpensive setup requirements.
Businesses that employ low-volume production methods typically possess a great deal of flexibility and are able to react swiftly to market developments. This is why custom orders or special requests, which often demand shorter lead times than high volume manufacturing processes, are frequently handled using low volume production techniques.
Advantages of low volume production include making unique products, generating small runs, and turning production around quickly. Additionally, low-volume production gives businesses the chance to test out new ideas without incurring significant upfront expenses for design or tooling development.
Is 3D printing cheaper for low volume production?
The short answer is yes. Additive manufacturing is cheaper for low volume production.
Before creating a single end-use product, companies that wished to make plastic products had to first construct tooling or moulds. The price of an injection mould tool can be a barrier when a projected distribution quantity of small quantities is taken into account.
Additionally, the time it takes to build a mould might range from 12 to 24 weeks, depending on its size and complexity. It is also exceedingly challenging to justify the cost and lead time of an injection mould for low volume production runs. At this point, 3D printing for low volume production starts to emerge as a more affordable, quick, and adaptable option for the creation of small quantities of parts.
