3-D Modeling / SLA Prototypes

Metal Castings Company can receive electronic file data transfer. Our customers can benefit from our early involvement in the design prototype stage. This can eliminate or shorten the development stage.

SLA prototypes can be run as loose patterns to provide valuable testing for final design approval before investing in hard tooling.

This can lead to reduced lead-times for 1st. Article approval and improve production deliveries.
