Prototypes

precision laser cuttingReal parts—not plastic simulations—are created using the wide range of truly state-of-the-art equipment we have at our disposal. In tandem with these machines, our skilled toolmakers can provide samples for design validation and testing using laser cut blanks and simple form tools.

Even if you don’t have a print, we can use our Zeiss CMM to reverse engineer your part to create a drawing.
We excel at helping our customer take cost out of their product with our up-front engineering assistance. We supply input that makes your parts easier to produce while gaining the best material utilization.

From Prototype to Production

Whether simple or complex, we can carry your product from prototype all the way through to production. Company-wide, our metal fabrication experience ranges from small-scale tool making to large scale production stamping, and — thanks to our renowned team of designers, toolmakers and press operators — we can even grow as your needs evolve; from prototype to low-volume production and then into high-volume production, if necessary.

Accurate & Repeatable Prototypes

Thanks to our laser’s consistent beam quality, accurate and repeatable rapid prototypingwe’re able to produce repeatable results, from prototype to product

There is a lot of information that can be learned in a prototyping exercise. Information that can help you save money when it comes to production tooling and manufacturing. In most circumstances, because of the knowledge gained in the process, the quality of the parts produced in mass production will also be higher than if the parts weren’t first prototyped.
