Why is Customized Low-volume Manufacturing a Trend?
With the rapid development of social economy, product life cycles are getting shorter to meet the marketing requirements. As a result, many developers & designers are moving away from mass production to custom low-volume manufacturing, so that more and more new designs or parts are rapidly entering into our lives.
Why is customized low-volume manufacturing a trend? Today, Creatingway will share mainly several potential advantages and benefits of custom low-volume manufacturing.
What is Customized Low-Volume manufacturing?
Low-Volume manufacturing is a production bridge between the prototype and mass production in different industries such as our Electronic Application. Consumer Products, more industries, Not only it can be effectively avoided the loss caused by large quantities, but also to test the products and the whole marketing consumption demands.
At the same time, it’s also a viable way to make your products to the marketing fast and let you respond quickly to modify the design and short product life cycles to meet the end consumer requirements.
Additionally. Customized Low-Volume manufacturing has the following advantages
The product lifetime shorter and faster time to market
With the development of the times, we are facing the challenge of the product design constantly changing and innovation. Especially many designers &developer will be under very pressure to constantly create new designs or modify existing ones to keep up with this pace.
Customized low-volume manufacturing is an ideal way to quickly enter the market and check market demands, and it also doesn’t increase the extra burden of inventory. At the same time, Due to the parts are customized low-volume manufacturing, so the whole lead time is shorter. (it may be several days or weeks- not months.)
It can save your money and cause unnecessary damage
When you design perfect parts and want to get the same perfect parts in the real world. At this time, you need to do the prototype or low-volume manufacturing to test the functions and application of the parts before mass production. This is a crucial step to the developer since it not only can improve the product design but also save your money and cause unnecessary damage.
Maybe almost of people think it’s obvious that manufacturing costs will decrease with the increase in order quantity, so they want to do mass production for the new design. However, they often ignore a fundamental factor: whether this design can be produced equally perfectly without any modification; whether it is suitable for the marketing or the end consumer requirements. If not, this will be a failed investment, at the same time you also will lose a lot of money.
The product design flexibility
We just mentioned that whether your product design is perfect, you will be able to produce the same perfect parts in the real world. Obviously, this answer is negative. As we know, CAD software will be able to draw a more accurate and exacting design than can be achieved by machine tools and material in the real world.
During production, you may find some shape or size of the parts needs to be modified, thus making it easier to be machined or the appearance of the product more perfect. Low-volume machining will be an ideal choice, it will let you make these changes easily without greatly impacting the total order.
It is bridge production.
When your product is in the development and design phase, Customized low-volume manufacturing will be your best choice, it can help to test the whole part and check the market requirements.
When your product design is recognized and meets the market needs, Low-volume manufacturing will as a guide that it will provide a way for you to scale up to mass production. Therefore, many people call it as bridge production or bridge tooling. With the production quantities increase, you also can find out an easier way to produce them, thus to improve the product quality and save the costs.
