The Prototype Process
Any new project where turnaround time and precision are absolutes requires an expert. Our experience allows us to provide solid guidance through the entire prototype phase. Our goal is to work with your engineers, designers, or technicians to eliminate as many revisions as possible right from the start.
Working from your model, print, or idea we can provide initial pricing along with any feedback on critical part features, machinability issues, material types, and part finishes. This review process ensures the best parts are produced no matter what the revision level.
Sometimes having a physical part in hand immediately is the most important solution. We can do that too. Once the necessary information has been received, the part is entered into our ERP system. From here, we can easily provide estimated pricing at any quantity level during the prototype phase of your project.
When your project reaches our floor it is under the care of highly skilled journeyman-level machinists-- the kind of craftsmen you want machining your prototype. It is also routed and tracked through its entire process by our ERP system.
See SERVICES for more specific information on inspection, traceability documentation, and equipment size.
Typically 1 to 10pcs. Depends on your application and testing required.
Ranges from 1 day to 2 weeks depending on the part complexity and finishes.
See SERVICES page for a list of materials we use all the time.
Print vs Model:
Either, both or none. Show us what you've got and we'll guide you from there.
