Description

In today's dynamic business environment, getting to the market first is critical. The speed at which products are developed and introduced is clearly linked to profitability and market share. Knowing this, it is not surprising that companies needing injection-molded components are utilizing rapid cut tooling to meet the challenges of the marketplace. Rapid cut tooling (RCT) allows companies to field test and produce sellable product for product launch or low volume production--in half the lead times associated with traditional tooling techniques.
