Proto Labs offers two types of injection molding service options. The prototyping option is for design validation, and is best suited for those who need smaller part quantities. On-demand manufacturing offers the flexibility of on-demand production of end-use parts for those who require larger part quantities.
Both injection molding services offer similar molds for their parts. Depending on which service option is chosen will determine part quantities, lifetime maintenance, quality documentation, and pricing. Check out the table below for a guide on choosing the correct service for your project needs.
