What Is Low-Volume Manufacturing?
Low-volume manufacturing is a rapid production method that precedes full-scale production, ranging from 100 to 100,000 units. It does not require investment in expensive production tools, but reduces risk, allows design flexibility, shortens time-to-market, and creates opportunities for production cost savings. Additionally, it provides agility and quick turnaround for on-demand manufacturing in the supply chain.
IDEAL providing high-quality custom parts that meet your design requirements and specifications via vast low-volume manufacturing services, including CNC machining, rapid injection molding, vacuum casting, metal casting, sheet metal, press forging, aluminum extrusion, and more. We continue to enhance production management, process improvement, supply chain collaboration, and cost control to continuously improve customer satisfaction with fast, efficient, and competitive pricing.

Rapid Injection Molding
We combine traditional injection mold machining methods with rapid mold manufacturing, ranging from voluminous test parts to on-demand molded parts. We handle the transition from small to large production runs.
Aluminum extrusion is suitable for manufacturing aluminium parts or profiles with consistent cross-sectional shape, usually using aluminum alloy 6061 and 6063 material extrusion. It also supplements CNC post-processing, including drilling, tapping, etc
Urethane Vacuum Casting
Silicone molds are made using 3D printed or CNC-machined masters to produce high-quality plastic-like polyurethane parts in low-volume for functional testing and pre-production evaluation.
Low-Volume CNC Machining
Small batch production of aluminum prototypes is usually one of the effective ways to reduce costs and time. IDEAL receives aluminum and steel prototype quote every day in dozens of countries around the world.
It is a fact that the price of one prsts machining is higher than that of small batch machining. Compared with Europe, and American rapid prototype companies, the same quality, IDEAL will be 40%-50% is cost saving.
Sheet Metal Fabrication
Our fabrication capabilities include stainless steel, steel, aluminum, brass, red brass, galvanized materials, and fabrication of frames, equipment panels, enclosures, chassis, brackets, and more.
We cater to sheet metal fabrication, from low-volume prototypes to high-volume production.
Rapid Metal Casting
We can provide pressure die-casting for aluminum, magnesium, and zinc, alongside investment casting for steel and copper. Additionally, we offer post-CNC casting finishing and flexible production methods for low-volume metal casting project requirements.
