Low Volume Manufacturing

Low Volume Manufacturing China

Not only one or several prototypes, ProtoWe provides our clients low volume manufacturing from 100 to 1,000 units, from 500 to 10,000 pieces. With our experience and advantage, we support our clients quality, cheap and short lead time small batch manufacturing parts or products. These manufacturing technologies include rapid injection molding, vacuum casting, CNC machining, 3D printing, sheet metal and more.

Rapid Molding

In years, we have developed and optimized rapid tooling and rapid injection molding. For small batch like 100~5,000 units of plastic parts, client could easily benefit from our cheap and short lead time.

  • Aluminum rapid tooling + molding 3-7 days
  • Cost saves more than 50% than a normal mold
  • Shared mold bases and simplified mold structures.
  • Working 24h/d & 7d/w

Vacuum Casting

For tens of plastics parts, vacuum casting is one of the best way in cost, quality and lead time. It is a economical and efficient way to get 10-30 units per silicone mold, and 50-200 units by several silicone molds.

  • Low cost for molds
  • Molds can be made in 1~2 days
  • Many types of polyurethane resins are available for casting, including overmolding
  • Cast copies are highly accurate with excellent surface texture
  • Molds are durable for 20 or more copies

CNC Machining

At PrototWe, CNC Machining is our traditional and core service. Each year, hundreds of thousands of quality CNC machined parts export from China to global clients. Our CNC machining service covers CNC Milling prototype, CNC Turning prototype, EDM machining and small batch manufacturing. We machine various materials: aluminum, stainless steel, mold steel, copper, zinc, plastic etc.

  • 30 sets of 3-4 axis CNC Millers, 2 sets of 5 axis CNC Millers, tolerance +/-0.005 mm
  • 5 sets of CNC turning machines, high precision +/- 0.002 mm
  • 3 sets of EDM machines, make up for CNC milling services
  • Support in-house CMM dimension reports

3D Printing

ProtoWe provides SLA/SLS/SLM 3D printing prototyping services since 2016. Now we are leading in SLA 3D printing prototyping in China. By 2020, ProtoWe has 100+ SLA printers, and the max whole print size is as long as 1,600 mm. We have 10 sets of HP SLS printers to print PA/Nylon material or with GF. The PA parts have very micromish and pyknotic surface and great strength. For SLM printing, we have 3 sets printer, main print some mold steel and stainless steel.

  • 100+ SLA printers, Max whole workpiece 1,600 mm
  • 10+ SLS HP printers, good surface quality
  • SLA materials: ABS like, ABS 8150,  Nylon like (Somos EvoLVe 128)
  • Materials: PA white, PA black, PA gray
