CREATE RAPID BRIDGE TOOLING FROM PROTOTYPE TO PRODUCTION
Low volume prototype is the best way to save time and cost for testing form and fit as well as preliminary market test, but anyhow it is simply cannot substitute the final finish and functional of the real injection material. Rapid injection molding known as Rapid Tooling is one of the real injection molding way that can solve the first hundreds of Trial production before mass production. Rapid injection molding is striving for low volume injection molding parts by using rapid tooling or soft mold. In prototype area we call it prototype injection molding because this is the easy molding way without complex hot or cool runners which will reduce the cost compare to mass production mold, but can using the real injection molding material for production all the same. When your production tooling won’t be ready for months, rapid tooling is a great way to receive parts quickly and inexpensively.
At WayKen, our technologies provide complete tool making capability and immediate support for plastic molding modifications. Including prototype injection molding and mass injection molds we can process mold material varied cast steel, aluminum, P-20 or high-grade tool steel. We have hundreds of different types of material to back up your choice as well as a wide range of mechanical and cosmetic properties.
WayKen On Demand provides low volume injection molding and rapid tooling (mold making) to turnaround your spec material parts within 3-4 weeks. If you are ready to go into production, take advantage of the high-speed machining, EDM, molding presses, and wide selection of materials. You get your complex and intricate parts faster and at a low cost way. We can deliver short run injection molding product timely to your engineering-grade thermoplastics required fast, and reducing your time to market oriented. Our variety of press sizes allow us to meet your plastic injection molding needs from 100 to 100,000 parts.
Benefits of Rapid Injection Molding Service
- Rapid Tooling- the material of rapid tooling will mainly be soft steel (such as P-20) and aluminum (such as 7075 T-6 aerospace grade aluminum). Rapid tooling lowers the cost to build a mold as opposed to hard steel as it can be machined 15%-30% faster, polished 3-10 times faster, and it is in lighter weight. Rapid tooling also provide easier temperature control allowing faster cycle times and the ability to remove the plastic parts at lower temperatures resulting in less product distortion.
- Low Volume Injection Molding Production- From lights out press runs with robotic pickers to manual hand pick-outs, to over molding, or production orders, tailor your production needs with our injection molding capabilities.
- Molding Materials- Select from over 200 items of prototype injection molding materials or provide your custom molding material to create your unique molded parts.
- Over molding- Easily combines the best properties of more than one material to create the perfect look and feel of your final product.
