Design Assistance For Prototyping, Metal Stamping

Prototype Design

Prototype & Short-Run Services, Inc. offers expert design assistance for all of your custom metal stamping and prototyping of metal component needs. Turn to our professionals for suggestions when it comes to ease of manufacturing, materials, and functionality.

Prototyping offers a wide range of benefits that will have a positive impact on your bottom line. Prototyping:

  • Speeds the process – get your product to market faster
  • Helps reduce mistakes that can cost you money
  • Eliminates unnecessary features early in the process
  • Reveals weaknesses early on
  • Allows you to create parts with complex geometries
  • Decreases the need for engineering changes down the road
  • Extends the life of the final product

CNC Prototyping

Prototype & Short-Run Services, Inc., CNC machining capabilities enable us to produce the finest accurate parts, full-functioning engineering prototypes, piece parts and injection molds. Fast turnaround and high accuracy on CNC parts or molds can be achieved with a wide variety of materials. Using various materials during the concept stage of your prototype will allow your design team to closely simulate the final product appearance, yet still give the freedom to make changes. Our highly trained CNC machinists have the experience to help point out any problem areas for future part production.

Design assistance from Prototype & Short-Run Services includes the expertise of experienced toolmakers. We use CAD software to aid in engineering and manufacturing. These computer files can be emailed for easy, efficient review and used during production of your custom metal stampings or for prototyping metal components.

Visual Prototype

This type of prototype conveys the overall shape and size of the product but does not usually prove the function of the idea. It is not designed to represent the materials or production methods of a final mass produced product. We take pride in producing the finest visual prototypes with extreme attention to detail through the use of a variety of materials, some of which include:

Proof-Of-Concept Prototypes

A proof-of-concept prototype opens the gates to new possibilities. Creating a proof-of-concept prototype shows that your promising idea is something possible to make. It does not have to be fully completed either. A proof-of-concept prototype takes your idea from beyond the realm of expectations into the world of possibilities and reality itself. Let Prototype & Short-Run Services, Inc. turn your proof-of-concept into an advanced prototype today.

Presentation Prototype

A presentation prototype combines the functionality of the product with the overall appearance. Often using bespoke parts, it is likely that production grade materials will be used. The advanced Prototype & Short-Run Services, Inc. engineers will work with you to fully develop your presentation prototype.

Metal Prototyping Design

At Prototype & Short-Run Services, Inc. we work with your company’s research and development department, engineering departments, and purchasing department to ensure that all departments have their share of input. Design assistance from Prototype & Short-Run Services will assist you in the design, development, and manufacturing of custom metal stampings, as well as any prototype stamping you may require. 

From the spark of an idea, creation of a prototype, to the manufacture of an innovative part; Prototype & Short-Run Services, Inc. will help your company succeed, with industry-leading design assistance and customer service
