Kick-Off a Plastic prototype project right. Learn about how our Aluminum Tooling lead-times are broken down. An important component of our process is the quoting aspect.

PHOENIX PROTO has separated our Rapid Aluminum Tooling process into 4 distinct elements. Each element plays an integral part within our process and together they allow us to produce an extremely high quality aluminum tool in 15 days or less, with no design limitations to our customer.

Our quoting process is always upfront. We find that the more informed our customers are about it, the faster we can proceed. When providing INSTANT prototypes, the quality of up-front information is critical to its success.

Prototype Design Information Needed

Dates When is the quote needed? When will the order be written? When is the design freeze? When are parts needed at your facility?

Geometry The more data you can provide us about your project the better we can make your project a success.
