Why You May Want to Consider Temporary Tooling

Why You May Want to Consider Temporary Tooling

The right tool is crucial to optimal part production, but sometimes it’s wise to consider a temporary tool instead of going directly to production tooling, especially in situations like early market evaluations.

Temporary tools for prototyping offer a number of benefits:

  • They’re made from low-cost materials like wood or epoxy
  • The tools can be made quickly
  • After the customer reviews the prototypes for form, fit and function, the tool can be changed effectively to address any design issues

While a temporary tool has a limited life, once it’s final, it can be used to make molds for final part production.
