There are 5 key questions to determine if Reaction Injection Molding is the right process for your project.
- How many pieces do you need?
Whether your project needs 40 parts per week or 2000 per year, Reaction Injection Molding could be your choice.
Reaction injection molding is a low volume, manually operated process that can take a little longer depending on the complexity of the design.
- How big is your piece?
This can become the ideal process for your project, considering that it is possible to build a larger piece by joining several pieces.
- What is the value of the final product?
Since the process requires lower tooling costs, this process can be the most cost effective for your company.
The value, depending on the design and the complexity of the project, the finishes, the colors or the rigidity, the values may vary.
- What are your parts and parts budget?
If the tooling costs your part needs are low, RIM may be the solution.
- What is the risk and long-term options?
Reaction injection molding can offer you a low risk manufacturing process.
Flexible ordering in smaller volumes allows you to buy only what you need when you need it, and with the option to modify, RIM molding can be essential for quickly tracking your development phases.
