We have a network of pre-qualified overseas and local Manufacturing Partners with deep experience in a variety of industries and specialties.
We train all our injection molding Partners to comply with our ISO-certified Quality Management System, ensuring consistent quality across each and every part.
Between our San Francisco-based support team and our bi-lingual team of engineers in Guangzhou, China, you can always talk to someone who understands.
Any commercially available material, rapid design molds in 10 days, production tooling with P20 insert steel — that's just the beginning of what we can do.

"Fictiv’s service was unmatched. Each phase was well-organized and fully transparent. I would highly recommend working with them."
We take privacy very seriously at Fictiv and take proactive measures to ensure your designs are secure at all times.
All Fictiv Injection Molding Partners are under strict NDA. Fictiv is also happy to sign company-specific NDAs.
We remove any identifying information from customers' 2D drawings and 3D files.
We hold tools in a secure facility for free for three years and for a storage fee thereafter.
Fictiv's overseas team keeps close tabs on all customer injection molding tools by running an independent annual audit of all tools in storage.
This material is a low-cost engineering plastic widely used for pre-injection molding prototypes. Easy to machine, glue, and paint.
Somewhat matte finish (think lego bricks) and can be painted. Certain faces may appear more shiny depending on their geometry and how they’re machined
Well-rounded and affordable, this is a common grade of nylon that resists both frictional and chemical wear. It is moisture-sensitive, however.
Milky-white finish, and is slightly translucent.
Scratch-resistant, often used for tanks, panels, and optical applications. It can be somewhat brittle in thin walled areas, so it is not recommended for delicate or complex geometries.
Transparent or opaque in its unfinished state. Clear acrylic will take on more of a frosted translucent appearance when machined, though can be smoothed again to an optically clear state using various finishing methods.
Wear and moisture resistant, slippery, and quite dimensionally stable for its cost. May also be called acetal homopolymer.
Delrin is naturally opaque white because of its crystalline structure and has a matte finish.
Slippery plastic that is often machined into plugs and seals. It is also an excellent electrical insulator as well as being moisture and chemically-resistant.
Naturally opaque white because of its crystalline structure, but is also available dyed black in more limited stock sizes. It has a waxy finish leveraged for low-friction applications.
Well suited for applications requiring optical clarity, yet is only half the weight of glass. Also known for its functionality over a wide temperature range.
Transparent milky-blue look in its natural state, also available in black. Both colors have a glossy finish, and are relatively prone to scratches. Anti-scratch coatings and vapor polishing are available as custom post-processing finishes.
Mild, low carbon steel that is machinable, weldable and useful where high-strength is not required, such as fixtures and mounting plates. It is magnetic and heat treatable.
The finish of 1018 steel is similar to that of stainless steel, generally shiny in appearance and slightly dark than aluminum alloys.
A relatively cheap and widely available metal that is known for good machinability, corrosion resistance, and its conductive properties.
6061: Brinell 95
7075: Brinell 150
Untreated aluminum generally has a dull silver/grey finish which varies depending on the roughness of the surface.
Also known as free machining brass, due to it having the highest amount of lead content of any brass alloy. It is commonly used for a variety of parts such as gears, lock components, pipe fittings, and ornamental applications.
Shiny yellow finish that varies depending on surface roughness. It can be sanded or hand-polished to increase its sheen (think trumpet or saxophone), or media blasted for more of a matte texture.
A workhorse of a material, used for a wide variety of applications and known for excellent strength and corrosion resistance.
303/316L: Rockwell B95
304L: Rockwell B80 (medium)
17 PH: Rockwell C35
303: 35,000 psi
304L/316L: 30,000 psi
17 PH: 160,000 psi
Greatly depending on surface roughness, but it’s generally characterized as being more shiny than unfinished aluminum alloys, and slightly darker and more silver in color.
The Fictiv network is comprised of high-precision mill and lathe machines. We’ve aggregated a diverse selection of machines to provide a wide range of machining capabilities for your part requirements. We regularly inspect machines and tools on-site to ensure quality. Below are some examples:
With Fictiv, your parts can have more feature variety due to a wide selection of tools carried throughout our network. Below are some major categories:
