Default cd manufacturing

Is it possible to buy equipement to manufacture cd.(not burning)

I'm just curious to know.

there is probably a lot of old used equipment on the market if you look....but you have an injection molder..small sputtering unit etc. it is a lot more than you want to think about just keeping it running.

My brother's company has two such "machines" -about a million each, if I recall correctly. He's getting ready to steal a used one frm a company that is going under for the low, low price of just $600k.

yes...it is a pretty easy process now...but you still need to have the masters and stampers made...I cannot see it being worth the effort as it is much easier to have a contract house do it all for "short" runs....

it was fun stuff to play with in the 80's....cd, write once and MO etc...3M, Philips, Dupont...they spent billions on it...product development, process development, manufacturing etc.

You'd be looking at an investment in the neighbourhood of $1,000,000 to get started.
