An Engineer's Guide to Low Volume Injection Molding

Submitted on

“In the current world of product development, the use of LVIM is a critical strategy to expedite development and to verify if [that development] will perform as anticipated. By leveraging the advantages of injection molding, the developer is able to get his or her product to market faster.”

  • Ron Hollis, Ph.D., P.E.


Today, injection molding is the most common and cost effective manufacturing method used to fabricate parts in low volume production. Consequently, the Low Volume Injection Molding  process allows product development companies to get real-world data on their product before investing heavily in a production tool that can produce millions of parts … and cost millions of dollars.

That’s why we’re excited to bring you this exclusive eBook,An Engineer’s Guide to Low Volume Injection Molding, part one of a three part series that examines the benefits and applications of one of the most widely used manufacturing techniques in the world.

Written by Ron Hollis, Ph.D., P.E., co-founder of QuickParts.com and author of Better Be Running!: Tools to Drive Design Success, this introductory guide to Low Volume Injection Molding includes:

  • Exclusive Industry Tips and Ideal Uses for LVIM

  • The Benefits and Ideal Applications of LVIM

  • Key Strategies for Compressing Product Timelines with LVIM

  • And Why Your Company Needs LVIM

In 2013, low volume injection molding represented over 50 percent of all transaction volumes in plastics for industries such as:

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Construction
  • Engineering
  • Industrial
  • Medical
  • And Packaging

As product developers are catching on to LVIM’s powerful capacity to intrinsically bolster larger production projects, LVIM provides “the only solution for quickly creating real parts for functionality testing in end-use material.” LVIM is the insurance you need to stay competitive, reinforce your bottom line, and get products to market faster.

Speed and quality are at a premium: Why sacrifice one when you can have both?
