All About Short Run Plastic Injection Molding

Forget about high minimum orders for your plastic injection project. Here at The Toolroom, we break down barriers to entry level plastic injection needs for prototypes or test runs. Short run or small batch injection molding is the same process of standard production molding without being cost prohibitive.

Advantages to short run plastic injection molding start with a lower minimum quantity requirement. Don’t need 100,000 parts? No worries, let us make 100 for you. Don’t want to wait weeks? We can help there as well, with a quick turnaround in a matter of days, not weeks. Short run plastic injection molding is not limited to a certain selection of materials.
