PROJECT – Fabricate low-volume tooling and deliver 30 overmold parts to client for testing using the same material that will be used in eventual high-volume production tooling.
ISSUE – Very short time line of two weeks to fabricate two tools, runs parts and ship to client.
SOLUTION – Tight time line management and detailed communication to ensure no time is lost.
RESULT – Parts delivered to client within 12 days of client green lighting project. Part quality exceeded expectations.

This project was the true definition of a rapid tooling project. Time line below:
RFQ – Vowin receives an RFQ for 2 tools and parts. Recommendations to client by Vowin is to make adjustments on radius and injection mold points – 1 Day.
DFM – Client reviews and accepts Vowin recommendations per DFM report provided by Vowin– 1 Day.
DAY 1 – Project starts, client confirms drawings and mold fabrication begins.
DAY 12 – Vowin runs test parts and ships to client.
Day 14 – Client receives parts.
SERVICE: Rapid Tooling and Injection molding part run
QUANTITY: Tools – 30 Parts
MATERIALS: P20 & Aluminium MATERIALS PARTS: PP/GF30+SEBS
FINISHING: Straight From Mold
LEAD TIME: 14 Days
This project was a success because both parties communicated effectively and made decisions quickly.
Rapid projects require quick decisions to hit time lines. Decisions that are made need to be acted on same day.
