More Affordable for Low Volume Production Rapid Tooling provides shorter lead times and lower costs. However, there is a trade-off in terms of the life cycle. Depending on the requirements, the life cycle for a rapid mold can range from a few thousand shots to over 30,000 shots. Rapid tooling offers the most cost-effective solution for low-volume productions.
Short Lead Time
Rapid tooling require fewer steps compared to traditional methods. Completing the prototype and the prototyping process swiftly enables quicker design finalization and delivery to clients.
At Capblemachining, our rapid tooling can be made faster and at a lower cost than production tooling. But keep in mind that rapid tooling is only a good choice under certain conditions.
The quantity will be the primary factor in choosing a manufacturing method. When a certain quantity is met, injection molding offers the most cost-effective way to reduce the price per part.

The Two Tooling Difference
Rapid tooling means making tools quickly and inexpensively for traditional manufacturing. These tools help create parts fast or in small amounts.
Production tools are often made from strong metals using processes like cutting and casting. But these are costly and better for making lots of things. When used for making a few tools or parts, they cost more and take longer.

Common Tooling Materials
The choice of mold manufacturing material is of great importance, because it determines its service life and the quality of injection molded parts. We have a variety of materials that are suitable for the manufacture of different grades of molds, and our professionals also provide customers with professional advice to help customers make suitable choices.
The most commonly used material for mold making is tool steel. It is easy to process and affordable. It is very suitable for molds used before low-volume or high-volume production.
|P20||Good processability and mechanical properties||Small injection volume and low pressure molds|
|718||Good wear and corrosion resistance||Large injection volume and high pressure molds|
|NAK80||Good wear and corrosion resistance||High-precision, small and medium-sized injection volume|
|S136||Good wear and corrosion resistance||High-precision injection molds and optical molds|
|H13||Good wear and corrosion resistance||High quality injection mold|
Aluminum molds cost significantly less than traditional steel and carbon steel injection molds. Its faster manufacturing cycle and lower price can help customers launch products quickly.
|Subtypes||Yield Strength||Elongation at Break||Hardness||Feature|
|6061-T6||35,000 psi||12.50%||Brinell 95||Higher intensity, Harden Alunuim|
|7075-T6||<68,000 psi||11%||Brinell 126||Good wear and corrosion resistance|
We have experienced professionals for surface treatment of molds.
|Name||Description||SPI||Guide||R.A Value||Typical applications||Injection Plastic material|
|Glossy||The diamond buffing process is employed to create polished and lustrous finishes on the injection mold, constituting the result of a grade. This procedure is notably time-intensive, with the choice of steel grade significantly influencing the ultimate outcome.||A1||Grade #3 Diamond||0-1||Lens / Mirror – requires 420 SS material||Acrylic|
|A2||Grade #6 Diamond||1-2||High Polish parts||Acrylic, PC|
|A3||Grade #15 Diamond||2-3||High Polish parts||ABS, Acrylic. PS, Nylon, PC|
|Semi-glossy||Utilizing grit sandpaper, B-grade finishes are employed to craft components featuring a subtle and matte surface texture, effectively eliminating all traces of tooling and machining imprints.||B1||600 Grit paper||2-3||Medium Polish parts||ABS, Acrylic, PP. PS, HDPE, Nylon, PC|
|B2||400 Grit paper||4-5||Medium Polish||ABS, Acrylic, PP. PS, HDPE, Nylon, PC|
|B3||320 Grit paper||9-10||Med – Low polish||ABS, Acrylic, PP. PS, HDPE, Nylon|
|Matte||Grit sanding stones are employed in C-grade finishes to create an intentionally coarse and uneven surface. This process effectively eradicates tool and machining marks while enhancing mold release properties. The resulting mold surface exhibits a muted matte texture, devoid of any shine or sheen.||C1||600 Stone||10-12||Low Polish parts||ABS, Acrylic, PP. PS, HDPE, Nylon, TPU|
|C2||400 Stone||25-28||Low Polish parts||ABS, Acrylic, PP. PS, HDPE, Nylon, TPU|
|C3||320 Stone||38-42||Low Polish parts||ABS, Acrylic, PP. PS, HDPE, Nylon, TPU|
|Textured||In D-grade finishes, a combination of grit and dry glass beads or oxide is harnessed to generate an exceedingly rugged textured outcome, serving to conceal shrink marks and other flaws. The final appearance varies based on the material employed, potentially resulting in a satin or non-reflective finish for the products.||D1||Dry Blast Glass Bead||10-12||Satin finish||ABS, PP. PS, HDPE, Nylon, PC, TPU|
|D2||Dry Blast # 240 Oxide||26-32||Dull Finish||ABS, PP. PS, HDPE, Nylon, TPU|
|D3||Dry Blast # 24 Oxide||190-230||Dull Finish||ABS, PP. PS, HDPE, Nylon, TPU|
