Tolerance

At Prototool we understand that some parts, whether they are prototypes or low-volume production can not have tolerance over a certain measurement which is why we make sure we work with a variety of tolerances depending upon the requirements of the client. We understand tight tolerances are not always a good thing, which is why we leave it out for our clients to decide on the degree of tolerance and on our part, we stick to it with as much precision as possible. 

Our minimum degree of precision is 0.01mm and the maximum can be as much as the client requires. Factors such as thermal expansion or contraction, along with vibration and wear & tear affect a part, so precision is strictly dependent upon the need of our customers and on our part, we make sure to keep the precision precisely to the degree our customer demands.

Finishing

No matter the minimum order, we strive to deliver perfection. This includes ensuring the highly precise finishing of all final products. The problem with Low-Volume production is most of the service providers are reckless when it comes to making sure the final product has the desired finishing of the customer, this is why Prototool doesn’t compromise on the finishing of its products no matter the volume. For any amount of products, you will find our finishing to be exemplary.

Industry Applications

Low-Volume Manufacturing is ideal for startups that are experimenting with prototypes and want to develop their product further before sending it for the final run. Similarly, big organizations that are starting something new can first develop and refine a product before they settle on the final version. It offers them a margin for scalability, saves time and resources, along with preventing any sort of compromise on the quality before the product is sent for manufacturing. it is ideal for products with shorter product life styles as manufacturers can quickly respond to the changes and keep optimizing which gives them a competitive advantage. Increased production time is essential for all markets and industries. quicker turnaround time and low investment is making it a highly preferred and popular practice across all industries.
