Our custom injection molding services
Create parts of all complexities sized from 3 mm (0.12 in) to 2 m (79 in) with DTSS-3D. Lead times are as fast as 10 days, and we offer local or global production options. Our manufacturing partners typically use 20 to 3,000 ton injection machines, depending on part size, complexity, and volume. DIN 16901-130 and tighter tolerances are available on request.
Injection molding is the manufacturing process of injecting high-pressure thermoplastic into a mold. Ideal for high-volume production.
A manufacturing process in which a part is molded around a pre-installed insert in the tooling.
A manufacturing process in which one plastic material is molded over another to create a single component.
A thermoset process that involves mixing a two-part solution together to produce flexible and durable parts.
Tooling - prototyping vs production
Ideal for rapid prototyping and low-volume production
Tool shot life – 1k to 100k units
Fast turnaround and cost-efficient construction
Aluminum or steel
Longer-lasting tooling for larger volumes
Tool shot life – 100k to 1M units
Automated production for cost-efficiency at higher volumes
Hardened steel for longer life and a scalable unit price
We offer several secondary operations such as painting or heat tapping inserts. You can specify which secondary operations are needed in the “custom requirements” part of your quote request. Here are some examples of secondary operations we provide:
Plastic injection molded products manufactured by DTSS-3D
Finish: as machined
Material: PC + ABS
Injection molding surface finishes
We offer any type of SPI surface finish, such as A-1, D-2 or D-3.
We offer any type of VDI surface finish, such as VDI28, VDI30 or VDI 33.

How much does plastic injection molding cost?
There are many factors that determine the cost of injection molding your custom parts. The three main expenses are tooling, materials and production. Find out how to reduce your manufacturing costs in our injection molding guide.
Who owns the injection mold?
Customers retain ownership of all custom tooling they develop, however, any reusable proprietary components developed by the manufacturing partner (MP) will become the MP’s property. All custom tooling will remain at the MP’s facility for a minimum of two years unless otherwise agreed. If the tooling is inactive after two years, the MP may contact DTSS-3D to determine if the tool must be retained for additional time. DTSS-3D will then contact the customer to make further arrangements. Molds can be transferred to any desired location upon request and at the requester's expense.
What happens if an injection molding partner leaves the DTSS-3D network?
Whenever a manufacturing partner leaves the DTSS-3D network, we carry the cost of transferring all molds to another MP in the network, ensuring that your parts get delivered on time.
What is the available capacity/timeline for reorders?
In general, we have the RFQ ready within 24 hours. It takes two days to set up the mold and order and process the materials, and one day for packing and sending the order out to be shipped. The volume of your parts will determine the number of days required for manufacturing.
What ISO certifications do you have?
We work with a network of specialized injection molding companies that have ISO 9001 and ISO/TS16949 certifications.
