Prototypes

precision laser cuttingWe will create metal prototypes with our premier equipment to determine the manufacturability of your product before full production.  In tandem with these machines, our skilled toolmakers can provide samples for design validation and testing using laser cut blanks and simple form tools.  Our laser’s consistent beam quality allows us to produce consistent, repeatable results from prototype to final product.

Even if you don’t have a print we can use our Zeiss CMM to reverse engineer your part to create a drawing.  Our design engineers will provide a fresh approach to your part and will identify costs that can be removed while maintaining the overall integrity of your part.  Our goal is to supply input that makes your part easier to produce while gaining the best material utilization.

From Prototype to Production

We can carry your simple or complex product from prototype all the way through to production.  Our metal fabrication experience ranges from small scale tool making to large scale production stamping.  Ultra’s renowned team of designers, toolmakers and press operators will meet your needs as you evolve from prototype to low-volume production and then into high-volume production.  And with our value-added services your part’s completion can be taken care of all in-house with less costs and interruption.
