Many injection molded parts do not require a high volume (greater than 100,000 parts per year) injection molding machine. Higher production machines are expensive, require considerable floor space, and require expensive multi-cavity hard steel tooling. MPM machines are optimized for lower volume plastic molded parts. They are cost effective, require a small footprint, and can use single cavity low cost tooling. Low Volume injection molding machines are a good fit for smaller production orders, prototyping, bridge manufacturing, and ASTM specimen applications.
