Mass Production Tooling
We specialize in the production of high quality, mass production tooling and rapid molds. With a wide range of technologies at our disposal, we are the perfect one stop shop for all your prototyping needs. We offer low volume production from just 3 to 15 days!
Here are two examples of our mass production tooling molds:
So What Is Mass Production Tooling?
Mass production tooling or mass production tools, involves the process of creating a large quantity of a product. The term “tooling”, infers using some kind of mold or tool which creates the product. Here at Shineyuu, this involves a metal mold which would create the product. The other piece of the term is “mass production”, which involves making large quantities of the same product over and over again. This in turn means that we can create large amounts of a product with our specifically crafted molds and materials using efficient methods.

How Does Mass Production Tooling Work?
So how does mass production tooling work, exactly? Mass production tooling consists of transforming CAD models into a physical tool or mold using mass production methods, like that of injection moulding. The injection moulding process is comprised of three main components: the plastic injection molding machine, raw plastic and the machined mould. The plastic is then melted into the injection moulding machine and then injected into the mold where it cools and solidifies into its final part. Once the piece has finished cooling it is removed and completed.

What Are The Advantanges Of Mass Production Tooling?
Mass production tooling provides a wide array of advantages, including:
- Cost: Mass production cuts the costs of workers on the factory line. Instead of having to pay dozens of workers for completing hand-given tasks, these manufacturers can now use assembly lines or machines at a lower cost without losing profits.
- Speed: Using machines and automation significantly impacts speed. Instead of workers needing to run around in order to gather parts, everything runs along an orderly and processed assembly line, cutting times to a fraction of what it would be otherwise.
- Uniformity: Mass production tooling is there to ensure that all parts look the same. With less room for error, both the manufacturer and the customer know what to expect. This in turn leads to a higher standard of quality. A product made by hand however, runs the risk of having errors, or that no two parts may necessarily look the same.
- Less errors: With all that in mind, mass production machines are less likely to make mistakes over human workers when undergoing production. A machine doesn’t get distracted or have a bad day, it simply works as its supposed to and the quality is maintained and uniform throughout.

How Shineyuu Does Mass Production Tooling
The below image shows the process of how we bring your design idea to reality.
Here at Shineyuu, we happily provide superior mass production tooling services at extremely competitive prices. We utilize steel molding tooling techniques, which is utilized as part of the molding process to create multiple copies of your parts. Our services include rapid tooling and mass production tooling.
