What is Low-Volume Manufacturing?

Low-volume manufacturing is the process that links the development cycle with high-volume production. Low-volume molding enables design improvement and optimization, reducing time-to-market and lower part production costs while reducing risk for cooling projects. Your product manufacturing process can be validated and seamlessly transferred to partner manufacturers for high-volume production when the time comes.

9.Jessica Jernigan
Lisa Craig----Director of Product Development

The prototype was well received at our event last week. One of our co-workers expressed concern that because it appeared to be so “product-like,” some people would mistake it for the real thing rather than a showcase model. Once more, many thanks for your excellent job in making ideas come to life!

Juraj Kaminski --- Mechanical Engineer

Kevin, I want to thank you and your team for all the attention to detail and hard work in getting our part done in just two weeks. We were able to get our last order from your courier on time, so we can deliver them to our customers today and tomorrow. We highly recommend NOBEL to everyone.

Low Volume Manufacturing FAQs

  • Q

    What does low volume production mean?


    Low-volume production typically refers to products produced in small batches with little or no engineering, design, or tooling investment. Small batch production processing is generally considered any order of fewer than 300 pieces, although this number may vary from company to company.

  • Q

    What are low volume manufacturing methods?


    According to NOBLE's many years of experience, we usually use small batch manufacturing to test products before mass production or when customer demand is small. Low-volume manufacturing processes including injection molding, CNC milling, and 3D printing

  • Q

    What are the benefits of low volume manufacturing?


    Manufacturing in low volume can shorten the overall production lead time, saving you time and effort during the product development phase. With low-volume manufacturing, you can iterate designs and parts faster to shorten product lifecycles when needed

  • Q

    What are the 6 types of manufacturing processes?


    NOBLE lists six standard manufacturing processes

    Repetitive Manufacturing

    Discrete Manufacturing

    Workshop Manufacturing

    Process (continuous) Manufacturing
