Custom Molding Quotes

Fathom offers the latest in custom molding, producing high-quality custom parts for its customers. Whether highly complex, time-sensitive, high-precision, or short production run related, Fathom can meet the requirements of your custom project.

How Custom Requests Can Affect Quotes / /

Custom manufactured parts are unique products made to fit specific functions. A custom part begins as a unique design and will often require custom tooling and programming of manufacturing equipment. Produced in smaller quantities when compared to mass-manufactured parts, custom parts are made by experienced manufacturers, like Fathom, who also offer design assistance, finishing, and engineering services. In addition, a reliable custom manufacturer will ensure that the concept of the entrepreneur can be manufactured in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible. As the parts are made to the customer’s exact specifications, there is more communication, testing, review, and quality control throughout the manufacturing process. As custom parts require a longer lead time and more labor, the cost to manufacture custom parts can be higher.
