The Headset for Low-Volume Production
Because the projected sales volume for this project was low, the cost for production tooling would be difficult to absorb. This 7 part tooling package was quoted at over $250,000 using Class A production tooling methods with a 12 week lead time. VistaTek completed this package in 3 weeks for under $30,000.
25,000+ parts were run off this tool over 4-5 years until a new product was introduced. Depending on material on complexity, it is very common to get 100,00+ parts off of aluminum tools.
