We design and build precision thermoform prototype tooling. Starting with prototype tooling can help you assess any necessary product or tooling modifications before committing to designing and building production tooling.
||Prototype Thermoform Tooling|
We can build prototype tooling from customer drawings or create a unique design based on customer requirements. We put our experience to work to properly evaluate each prototype project for design optimization and manufacturability. We move quickly to design and build prototype tooling with delivery times as short as 1-2 weeks. Our prototype cavities can also be installed in existing production tools with the same trim to test real world performance.
||Rapid Prototype Thermoform Tooling|
We design and manufacture rapid thermoform tooling so you can get part samples within days after design approval.
Sample parts can be invaluable for testing a products merit and manufacturability prior to investing in a machined prototype cavity and as a visual aid for supporting your selling efforts with prospects/customers. We can form parts from rapid tooling, prototype tooling or production cavities. We provide sampling runs as small as 12 or as many as you need. We can mold samples using most resins in solid sheet as well as foam.
