Injection Molding FAQ
What are the lead times for quick turn molding?

Xometry's quick turn molding process involves using a proprietary insert and base system to produce molded parts rapidly. Depending on your project's requirements and complexity, parts can be delivered as quickly as 5 business days!

Will I receive design for manufacturing (DFM) feedback?

Yes! As part of Xometry's service, we offer DFM feedback on all projects both pre-sale as well as during final tool kickoff to ensure the project is a success.

What is the process after ordering?

After receiving the order, one of our manufacturing engineers reviews the statement of work. A case manager is assigned, and an appropriate manufacturing supplier is identified. A comprehensive DFM/PEG report is created and provided for approval. Upon approval, tooling and mold production is commenced. T1 samples are produced and shipped for approval. Upon approval, the remaining parts are made.

What is the minimum order quantity with quick turn molding?

Quick turn molding is available for order quantities of 50 and greater. We offer urethane casting and 3D printing services, which are great options for lower-quantity orders.

What industries use injection molding?

Injection molding is used across various industries, including aerospace, medical devices, consumer goods, energy, electronics, automotive, robotics, toys, and more.

Why would I prototype with injection molding rather than 3D printing?

3D printing is an excellent process for rapid prototyping! However, prototyping with injection molding enables a much more comprehensive range of materials, finishes, and textures that other processes do not offer. Prototyping with injection molding also paves the way for potential full-scale production in the future. You can iterate and tune the design to fit the same process used for production quantities. Many customers do initial prototyping using 3D printing but later move onto injection molding when preparing to scale production and bring their creation to its final vision.

What is MUD tooling?

A MUD (Master Unit Die) is a type of mold that uses a standard injection molding frame that utilizes inserts that define the shape of the internal cavity and thus the eventual part. Think of it as a quick-change system akin to swapping out the head of a disposable razor. Ultimately this type of tool helps drive lower-cost and lead time as most of the machining time will be focused on the core and cavity work, rather than all other aspects of a more complicated tooling setup. MUD tooling is often used with prototype molding applications. Learn more about injection molding tooling and processes.
