You envision it. We’ll design, fabricate,  build, and test.

From small part modifications to seat frames assemblies, instrument panels and muffler systems, to life-size vehicle and full scale aircraft  prototypes, we do it all. By orchestrating everything in house, we have complete control of speed and quality. This flexibility makes us uniquely scalable and reliable.

Our prototyping services are trusted by a wide-range of companies– from startups to the world’s leading automotive , aerospace and defense companies. Our vertical integration enables us to create virtually any prototype in our own facilities on our own equipment by our talented staff.

 We create prototypes using:

 

  • FDM ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING
  • PLASTIC INJECTION MOLDS
  • MOLDED OR MILLED FOAM
  • COMPRESSION MOLDING
  • METAL STAMPING AND FABRICATION
  • MOLDED CARBON FIBER
  • SILICON MOLDS
  • VACUUM FORMING
  • PATTERN DEVELOPMENT
  • CUT & SEW
  • WOOD, COMPOSITE, CAST AND BILLET ALUMINUM TOOLING
