First. Fast. Quality.

Prototyping is personalized but personal contact does not offset fast performance or great results. And we do it all: Seamless transition to production means the lowest total cost and least hassle for both prototypes and production.

For plastics and rubber we offer rapid injection molding for the best option for real-world evaluation and testing. For rigid plastics, cut time and cost even further with the outstanding 3-D printing capabilities afforded by the Dimension® 1900 3-D printer.

On-site tooling.
Our modern, on-site tool room builds molds exclusively using state-of-the-art CNC, EDM, CAD-CAM and supporting equipment. No outsourcing of time critical work.

No soft cavity metals.
For injection molded prototypes, we work almost exclusively in A-2 and equivalent tool steel cavities. Just as economical as aluminum, and bridge tooling is seldom required for short-to-medium runs, giving you improved speed, economics and reduced time to production.

Seamless.
We can incorporate prototype mold components into the production mold for additional cost savings, usually in the form of a credit against the cost of the production mold.

Secondary ops.
Machining, assembly, printing and packaging. We'll get you as close to a production-ready part as you can possibly get.

All drawing formats.
2-D or 3-D CAD? Hand sketch? Something in between? No problem! We accept all drawing formats.

METHODS
--Injection molding
--3-D printing

MATERIALS

SEAMLESS TRANSITION TO PRODUCTION
Because we use materials and data generated during prototyping, we offer the shortest time and lowest cost to actual production.

For prototyping rigid plastics, the Dimension 1900 3-D printer delivers quality ABS prototypes in only 2-5 working days. It requires no tooling and pricing begins at only $250.
For real world testing and evaluation, nothing beats actual injection molding for BOTH flexible and rigid plastics as well as rubber.
