Re: Best Process for Small Production Run

Allen, I would like to know what the material is?
If you are doing a thermoplastic resin, Then you could use a compsite
injection mold (hi temp epoxy). I would highly recommend staying with
standard processes if it is thermoplastic resin! If material is not an
issue, then epoxy and "rubber",(RTV) could be used. If you have a jpg of the
part, I would like to see it. You could also do a fiberglass part in a RTM
mold. RTM is resin transfer molding.

to produce 50 of the housings and 400 of the insert pockets without using
production tooling/injection molding. Is this job too big for rubber
tooling, or is there other alternatives better suited for these size parts
and quantities.
