Tooling is not a one-size-fits-all operation; questions of cost, purpose, and timeline need to be addressed when you’re beginning to work with a tooling partner. Many people don’t realize that there are three distinct classification types of tooling: prototype tooling, bridge tooling, and production tooling
Prototype tooling is a method used in rapid prototyping to create different parts for a prototype with the help of low-cost injection moulds. This method, also known as soft tooling or rapid tooling, allows the creation of several parts as fast as possible.
Bridge Manufacturing uses 3D printing to produce low-volume runs of a part before mass production with traditional methods. This process is a useful step before bringing a product to market. It enables a smooth transition from rapid prototyping to mass production.
Production tooling refers to plastic injection moulding tools and dies that are built to withstand the rigorous demands of mass production while maintaining tight dimensional tolerances on every finished part.
