Rapid Plastic Prototype Lead Time Examples: 3 Weeks

All of these rapid plastic prototype components were created within days of project kickoff from Aluminum Tooling. No designs were changed unless design enhancements were recommended to increase the moldability of a plastic part. Our Aluminum Tooling process can produce rapid prototypes with tight tolerances, complex geometry’s, lifters, various surface finishes and textures, living hinges, over molds and more.
