Manufacturing Services

Molded offers two manufacturing services – rapid manufacturing is best suited in case part quantities stay low and is often associated with prototyping, on-demand manufacturing is a good fit when your product design requires more degrees of freedom or special types of materials.

Besides differences between two services provided, there are also important similarities:

 

 

Fast turn-around times in all active markets

 

Provided services cover your complete product cycle

 

All capabilities are in-house with highest quality standards

Rapid manufacturing

This service is ideal when rapid development in short period of time is crucial and part quantities stay low

Rapid prototyping

  • As fast as commercial-grade 3D printing with higher precision, more repeatability, and more scalability

  • Validate your prototypes with production-grade materials

  • Reduce financial risk before investing in high-volume tooling

Quality

  • Automated design analysis enables product optimization before manufacturing even begins

  • Simulation and flow analysis for risk mitigation guaranteeing high product quality

  • Inspection reports available on request

Materials & geometries

  • With this service we support only a selective set of materials and more strict geometries than the on-demand service in order to guarantee turnaround times

  • Medical and food grade materials are supported with this service

  • Complete list of supported materials, grades, geometries and finishes can be found here.

On-demand manufacturing is ideal if part quantities tend to get higher, lower price per part is important and fast replenishment during entire product cycle is a must

Supply chain

  • Mitigate risk of global shipping delays by having on-demand supply within 3 days​

  • Prevent back-orders in case of demand volatility; procure parts on-demand​

  • Reduce inventory costs and other logistical expenses with a Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) of 250 pieces​

Engineering

  • Our engineers are involved at an early stage to advise on material selection and product design ​

  • Ensure manufacturability, mitigate risks before investments, and reduce price per part

  • Combine on-demand manufacturing with any of our engineering services

Materials & geometries

  • On-demand service supports the use of high-performance thermoplastics, which are ideal for replacement of metal or other CNC machined products
