Several factors must be considered in the manufacturing industry when planning a product development process. These include essential aspects such as cost, quality control, customer satisfaction, and time-to-market.

Short run casting is a manufacturing technique for pouring patterns or molds directly into the metal. This method is often used for prototyping or low-volume production. The advantage of this process is that it saves time and money, but there are several misconceptions surrounding it.

Don’t miss out on the Production Capability of Short-Run Casting

  1. Quality
    Short-run machining (SRM) can be used for prototypes, single units, or small production runs. SRM can save time and money by reducing tooling costs, eliminating setup/breakdown times, and providing greater flexibility than other methods.
    There are two primary benefits of using SRM: speed and quality. SRM offers high speed, precision, repeatability, and versatility. However, SRM does have some drawbacks, including higher scrap rates and increased material waste. Understanding SRM procedures and practices can help decrease these disadvantages and improve overall results.
  2. Attention to detail
    If you are comfortable with your fabrication skills, you should consider fabricating parts yourself. But by working closely with expert engineers and an experienced product development team, you can manufacture the part exactly how you want it, and you may not need any special tools or equipment to do this.
  3. Speed to market
    With short-run casting, you can produce highly accurate copies for the medical, automotive, robotics, and consumer goods industry. Because of its versatility and effective process, it guarantees a quick turnaround.
    It can be challenging to predict the amount of time needed to complete a task on your own, but if you plan ahead and take the necessary steps to ensure success with an expert team, you will find yourself completing projects much faster than expected.
