Low Volume Manufacturing: Customized Manufacturing Solutions for Small-Scale Production Runs
If you’re a startup or small business looking to bring your product to market, low volume manufacturing may be the ideal solution for you. Low volume manufacturing involves producing small-scale production runs, typically ranging from a few dozen to a few thousand units, to meet the needs of niche markets or startups.
At Hemtom, we specialize in providing customized manufacturing solutions that cater to the specific needs of startups, entrepreneurs, and small businesses. Our startup-friendly manufacturing process is designed to be sustainable and eco-friendly, while offering fast turnaround times, competitive pricing, and quality assurance services.
what makes us different
Advantages of small batch manufacturing
Made for you on demand and on time
High-speed, automated cutting can be precisely formed into different shapes, and it is a computer-automated manufacturing process that uses pre-programmed software and codes to control the movement of production equipment for low-volume CNC machining.
Dimensional Accuracy: ±0.003 inches.
Fast processing: reliable operation 7/24 hours.
Achievable mechanical properties: all desirable mechanical properties of the selected metal or plastic are preserved
Why choose us for small batch production
As a leading mold manufacturing service provider in China, many of our services have surpassed our competitors. Start your project with simple steps:
Choose Between Production Processes
There are many processes involved in making a component or part, and Hemtom engineers can guide you in determining which processes and materials will work best in the performance of the final product. In terms of process characteristics, injection molding is suitable for parts made of lightweight and durable materials. CNC machining and sheet metal manufacturing technology are typical processes for precision metal parts with strict material requirements. Advanced 3D printing technology is suitable for complex process parts. Whether you’re starting from a single piece – 1,000,000+ parts or prototyping, we’ve got you covered.
The following table can help you choose the most suitable production route and process according to the required capacity and process range.

Got questions about our low volume manufacturing services? Check out our frequently asked questions for answers to common queries.
If you need to keep producing the same set of parts on a monthly or quarterly basis, then you can opt for a manufacturing contract.
If you’re still in the prototyping phase, we recommend using our platform for instant pricing and DfM feedback.
Hemtom has no minimum order requirements. Our services can help you scale from one-off products and prototypes all the way to mid-volume and high-volume production. Unit prices may drop significantly as volumes increase.
For manufacturing contracts, we select experienced engineers to produce all batches. Therefore, you can expect consistent part quality throughout the contract period.
Local tolerances are +.005”/-.005” for most metal geometries and +/- 0.010” for plastics. All manufactured parts have 0.010” dimensional and 1° angular tolerances.
Please standardize your needs in the inquiry, we can make adjustments for you according to our business level.
