Explore the value of sustainability in injection molding and how Deluxe supports these efforts as a quality molder committed to the cause.
Plastic injection molding is a powerful asset for many industries, from commercial goods and toys to automotive parts, medical devices, industrial equipment, and much more. Though there are many plastic molders to choose from, one key way they differ is the volume of custom plastic parts that they’re able to produce, such as low and high volume molding.
Low volume plastic molding can be the right choice for some projects, but for many companies, high volume molding can be more strategic. Producing larger volumes of your custom plastic parts can ensure you get all the parts you presently need in one run, helping you save money and get more value out of each production run. It also ensures you’re prepared to satisfy customer demand and ramp up your scaling.
Read on to explore the key advantages of high volume molding and how you can find the right partner to prepare your project for success.
Benefits of High Volume Molding
Get the Volume You Need Now, Not Later
If you need a large volume of products quickly in order to be prepared for your journey to market, or in order to meet high customer demand, high volume molding is a strong solution. With low volume molding, you may suffer if there are any delays in shipping or the production process, increasing the risk that you won’t have the inventory you need when you need it.
With high volume molding, large batches of plastic parts are produced in a short timeframe, allowing you to stock up on inventory and stay ahead of the competition in your ability to quickly serve your customers. Partnering with a molder that has high volume capabilities empowers you to get exactly the inventory you need without settling so you’re prepared to satisfy your customers without delay.
High volume injection molding can be a more cost-effective option for large orders. High volume molding is highly efficient, helping you keep costs down. Its efficiency provides a great option for saving costs in the short term, but it offers unique long-term benefits too. With low volume molding, you may have to order more frequently, which can ramp up production expenses and cost you more over time.
Ordering a high volume of plastic parts also helps offset the initial investment of tooling and mold costs, helping you maximize the value of each order: getting more products in fewer production runs and enjoying lower costs per unit. This supports your bottom line and sets you up for success as you satisfy customer demand in a more cost-efficient way.
High volume molding is an extremely efficient process that limits wasted time and uses powerful tools like automation to keep production running on time. Not only do you save time in the molding process itself, but you also save time in the entire production and shipping process. With a low volume order, you may experience delays when you have to make multiple small orders instead of one larger batch. Each new order is accompanied by another shipping process and another period of time waiting for your project to be started.
High volume molding lets you receive more products in only one production process and shipment. This cuts critical time out of the production cycle and these time savings translate to cost savings, in addition to freeing you up to focus on the next initiatives for your growth.
Finding the Right High Volume Molding Partner
When choosing an injection molding partner with the ability to handle high volume molding orders, there are a few key considerations you must make, including:
Not every injection molding facility is equipped to handle high volume molding, so it’s important to check in with your chosen partner and assess if they have the capabilities needed to bring your project needs to life. Achieving maximum accuracy and efficiency in high volume molding requires start-to-finish support, including design, molding, and secondary services. At Deluxe, our full-service capabilities are designed to push your project across the finish line and we can handle the high volume orders you require.
To achieve high volume molding, a facility must be large enough to accommodate your needs. Facilities that are too small or are limited in their equipment may have to work slower or may struggle to create large enough batches of your projects. At Deluxe, we have three state-of-the-art facilities in Wisconsin and an additional advanced facility overseas. Our extensive facility space enables us to better serve your needs and handle your molding orders.
Equipment and Automation
The amount of equipment a molder has, as well as how advanced that equipment is, will shape their ability to achieve high volume molding. At Deluxe, we use industry-leading machinery and infuse our processes with key automation tools to ensure no time is wasted in producing the high volumes you require. With more than 55 injection molding machines in our facilities, and advanced Star Robots that allow us to operate non-stop for 24 hours a day, we have the equipment to produce high volumes of your custom plastic parts within efficient timelines.
