Our custom injection molding services

Create parts of any complexity from 3mm (0.12in) to 2m (79in) in size with V1. Lead times are as short as 10 days and we offer local or global production options. Our manufacturing partners typically use 20 to 3,000 tonne injection molding machines, depending on part size, complexity and volume. DIN 16901-130 and tighter tolerances are available on request.

SPI surface finishes

SPI Surface Finish Levels:

  • A-1: High gloss surface, high transparency, using polished mold surface.
  • D-2: Skin TEXTURE SURFACE, using sanded or etched mold.
  • D-3: Coarser skin texture surface, typically from shot blasting.

The V1 Standard guarantees consistent quality every time.

V1 applies strict standards to all custom parts, ensuring the quality and consistency of the injection-molded components. We inspect each order thoroughly, both visually and dimensionally, during and after production.


Several factors determine the cost of molding custom parts through injection. The primary costs are tooling, materials, and production. To reduce your manufacturing costs, refer to our injection molding guide.

Ownership of the injection mold is under question.
Custom tooling will always be owned by the customers; however, the manufacturing partner (MP) acquires any reusable proprietary components they develop. The MP is responsible for keeping all custom tooling at their facility for at least two years, unless they agree to do otherwise. If the tooling remains inactive for two years, the maintenance provider (MP) may contact V1 to assess the need for retaining the tool for a longer period. V1 will subsequently get in touch with the customer to make additional arrangements. The mold can be moved to any desired location at the requester's expense and upon request.

If a manufacturing partner exits the V1 network, we bear the cost of transferring all molds to another partner in the network to ensure timely delivery of your parts.

Generally, we can have the Request for Quotation (RFQ) ready within 24 hours. Setting up the mold, ordering and processing the materials takes two days, and an additional day is required for packing and sending the order out for shipment. The manufacturing time required will be directly proportional to the volume of parts you require.

We work with a network of injection molding companies specialized in ISO 9001 and ISO/TS16949 certifications.
