Metal Prototypes Options
High-Speed CNC Machining
A wide variety of metals, plastics and even clear plastics can be CNC Machined. We can combine this with lathe, boring, EDM burning, wire cutting and laser cutting to come up with one of the fastest and most accurate methods for producing a prototype part. Normal lead time is about 1 to 2 weeks.
Multiple processes are available for providing our customers with metal castings. Our fastest cast metal method is Insty-Metal, done in 1 to 2 weeks and in just about any cast material. Then there is True-Cast, a plaster-based tooling method for anyone wanting aluminum prototypes and zinc prototypes in 3 to 4 weeks. Other methods include sand casting, investment casting, permanent molds and die casting. Each method has it place, based on time, cost, material and tolerances. We will help you select the right method for your metal prototyping project.
Bent Metals, Extrusion, and Stamping
Done in as little as a week, many times we combine development methods. Laser cutting, welding and fabrication can all be used in these speedy sheet metal projects.
