Aluminum Tooling Advantages Over Steel Tooling

Rapid Aluminum Tooling

Plastic Prototypes

– No Design Limits –

Your Injection Molded Plastic Prototype Concept

We Build to Your Specification.

Rapid Plastic Prototypes usually means compromising on the design in order to receive parts quickly and cost efficiently. We blend traditional Injection Molding Tooling methods with Aluminum Tooling to rapidly produce production quality Plastic Prototypes in 3 weeks or less, check out our Aluminum Tooling Lead Times.

Plastic Prototype’s that compromise and limit your design? Cheap on the front side isn’t so cheap at the cost of expensive lessons learned in production start-up. Our customers need and want Injection Molded Plastic Prototypes that show their design live, fit and function so they can learn from it and move directly into production.

3D Printed Molds

3D Printed Prototype Parts

Rapid Plastic Prototypes Just Got Faster

Plastic Parts in Hours

3D Printing creates fit & function parts in hours. We now are making 3D printed molds for short run prototyping. Now you can get all the speed benefits of 3D printing along with the learning process from Aluminum Tooling. This ensures a smooth transition from true prototypes to production quality parts from Aluminum Tooling or other materials.

3D printed molds can run many types of materials and 3D printed molds are fitted with everything a traditional mold is fitted with… water lines, cam slides, core pins, lifters, etc.

Depending on the resin and part geometry, 3D printed molds are well suited for about 100 shots in general.

WATCH – Aluminum Tooling Benefits and Cost Savings

Watch Bob Lammon the founder of PHOENIX PROTO in his Aluminum Tooling Presentation explain how you can close the “gap” between traditional P20 injection mold tooling and rapid tooling by using Aluminum Tooling. He outlines the misconceptions about Aluminum Tooling that has been prevalent since the 1980’s. There is a reason why 7075 grades of Aluminum are “Aircraft Grade”, not to mention why cookware uses Aluminum due to it’s excellent thermal conductivity. Learn more about the myths and facts about Aluminum Tooling here.
