Successful Products Begin with a Solid Process
Setting the Standard for Custom Manufacturing
Real Materials, Real Parts, all delivered in days thanks to advanced processes and technical expertise.
Plastic injection molding? Check. Prototyping? Yep. CNC machining? That too. Advanced mold making system? Uh-huh.
Utilizing industry-leading technology and next-generation processes, Clinton Township, Michigan -based Xcentric Mold & Engineering is raising the bar on prototyping and part production in a better effort to provide product developers with high-quality parts faster than ever before.

Its these advanced processes and technical know-how that helps product developers achieve their ultimate goal of faster time to market. Fast time to market is the difference between innovators and imitators, says Brendan Weaver, Xcentric President. But what many product developers gain in speed, they sacrifice in part quality, and thats not the right path to take with an end goal of a successful product. Were able to offer the best of both worlds as far as speed and quality are concerned."
Xcentric specializes in a variety of different part fabrication technologies, a factor that separates the company from their competition. For instance, Xcentric's advanced quick-turn injection molding process is a state-of-the-art process, best utilized for small production runs but capable of 10's of thousands of parts.
Also specializing in CNC machining materials such as stainless steel, brass, ABS, polycarbonate, nylon and more virgin materials low volume production runs, For prototype parts, Xcentrics rapid prototyping processes can create fully functional, accurate test parts in everything from space age metals to conventional plastics.
Additional services include manual and automatic tooling, insert molding, overmolding, multi-component assemblies and quality checks. "The list goes on and on and on," Weaver says. "Yes, we offer some of the same technologies that the other guys do. But then we offer a ton of things that they don't, too.
Providing developers a no-hassle competitive advantage and a better alternative for manufacturing custom plastic and metal parts in a fast, cost-effective manner." Turnaround times are anywhere from 1 to 15 days, depending on the process, application and part complexity, and full professional support is offered throughout the entire project all at an affordable price.
Founded in 1996, Xcentric has emerged as a leader in providing custom molded, CNC machined and rapid prototype parts for essentially every industry, from consumer products to medical devices. Quotes are delivered in a prompt and easy-to-understand manner with an online interactive quote system and project support is available every step of the way.
