Urethane casting Service
3D Printed mold tooling
3D printers have been shaking up the mold-making industry for years by producing fast and affordable plastic molds and unique metal molds that enable complex design, mass customization, and accelerated production times.
Rapid Aluminum Tooling
Aluminum tooling is a mold-making method used for low-volume injection molding. Since aluminum is nowhere near as hard as steel, an aluminum mold can be machined in a fraction of the time.
Rapid Steel Tooling
Steel is a durable and high-quality material that lasts longer. It is more suitable for producing molds from engineering-grade plastics and for high-volume production runs. However, it is more costly than aluminum and may take more time to make mold tooling and prototypes.
KUSLA Prototype is a leading rapid tooling service provider in China that offers high-quality and cost-effective quick tooling services to customers from various industries.
Whether you need a prototype, a low-volume production or a mass production, we can help you achieve your goals with our rapid tooling services.
We use advanced technologies and equipment to create rapid molds and parts with fast turnaround time and high accuracy. We can also provide various surface finishing and assembly options for your parts.

Advantages of Rapid Tooling
- Accelerated Time to Market: Speeds up both prototype and product production, reducing time spent in prototyping and expediting the time to market.
- Custom Mold Creation: Allows for custom mold design with flexible dimensions and materials, facilitating quality control testing for material selection.
- Thorough Design and Functionality Testing: Enables quick creation of prototypes and molds, allowing for extensive testing, adjustments, and improvement of design functionality and market appeal.
- Increased ROI: Shortens product development time, aiding in faster returns on investment (ROI) due to reduced production and prototyping costs.
What is rapid tooling?
Rapid tooling involves the production of a tool or mold that enables manufacturers to rapidly-produce parts of a product that would function as a tool. it is the group of techniques used to fabricate tooling fast, at low cost, and efficiently for traditional manufacturing processes to create parts on a slim timeline or in lower quantities.
