Short-run molding,

sometimes called low-volume molding, can be defined as running a given mold less than 64 hours per week.

(sometimes much less).

Short run means a molding machine may be changed over multiple times per day to run different molds, materials and parts. In Donnelly’s case, the average runtime is 11 hours and the median is 7 – creating a level of complexity that many molders are simply unable to handle. It takes a proven short-run specialist to get it right.
