A primary concern for any manufacturer is confirming the products they bring to market are optimally designed, aesthetically pleasing and functional. Confirm the plastic components or assemblies your design produces perform as intended with high-quality prototyping services from Bruin Manufacturing.
Bruin hot runner prototype/bridge mold base with changeable prototype inserts.
We are a full-service plastic injection molder specializing in in-house development of affordable tooling used to produce prototypes, one-offs, and low-volume pieces. This process enables our customers to inspect, test and scrutinize finished products, tweaking and resolving all details to ensure the best possible outcome, without the high cost of a full production run.
There are many reasons to prototype before starting full-scale production. Examples include:
Deciding to prototype doesn’t have to mean lower quality. At Bruin Manufacturing, our prototype molds are made from the same high-quality steels as standard production ones. Mold bases are manufactured from lightweight but corrosion resistant stainless steel. Hardened tool steel inserts and cores provide robust strength.
When you are ready to begin full-scale manufacturing, we can produce from the prototype die while the full production mold is built. Our approach offers the following benefits:
Customers seeking orders of more than a few thousand cycles are encouraged to move away from prototype dies and toward standard molds, which can withstand faster cycle times and higher production levels. Every standard mold we fabricate adheres to the Society of Plastics Industry’s Class 101 standard.
Injection-molded prototypes can be very beneficial to making a successful product. It enables you to verify part engineering, display a finished product or eliminate imperfections before investing in mass production. With Bruin Manufacturing, we can help you get there.
