On Demand, On Time Low-Volume Manufacturing Services

When designers, engineers, and R&D companies consider developing new products, the primary goal is prototyping and mass production as the first priority, but there is still a greater demand for low-volume manufacturing. AN-Prototype satisfies customers’ ability to obtain the exact quantity of parts they want, and is recognized as one of the leaders in providing the highest quality rapid low-volume manufacturing services.

When you need low-volume manufacturing solutions, AN-Prototype’s uncompromising quality and no minimum production limit are your trust. Contact us for a free quote and find out how we can support your project.

What is low-volume manufacturing?

Low-volume manufacturing is a specialized craft service that provides metal or plastic parts in full high-volume production quality. The number of parts varies from 1 to several thousand pieces. Low-volume manufacturing is ideal for moving your idea from the concept stage to prototyping and on to the bridge to high-volume production.

Customers may be concerned about whether low-volume manufacturing will sacrifice part quality or precision compared to full-scale production manufacturing. Rest assured that when we process small batch manufacturing orders, the same materials, same equipment and the same strict quality controls are used.
