Prototype manufacturing is a customized process. We have over 60 years of experience working with these unique sheet metal fabrication programs. We tailor our solutions to your sheet metal prototype program’s specific needs. From cutting and bending to stamping and assembling, each program is unique. We manage your complete program in-house, vertically integrating all processes and technologies while maintaining a single point of contact.

We utilize robotic automation in our prototype manufacturing process for OEMs, start-ups, electric and autonomous vehicles, aerospace products, and the military. Our prototype resources allow us to produce anything from small bracketry to complete Body in White vehicles. This includes manufacturing tooling, prototype stampings, trim moldings, specialty items, and sub-assemblies with complex joining.

Our Prototype manufacturing experts work with a wide array of metals, joining advanced and exotic materials including:

  • Aluminum, including bright or pre-painted
  • Stainless steel, including polished or bright grades
  • Carbon steels
  • Boron steel
  • Dual phase steel
  • Advanced high strength steels, including martensite and TRIP
  • Inconel®
  • Waspaloy®
  • Hastelloy®
  • Titanium
  • Magnesium
  • All ferrous metals

In our sheet metal prototype business we leverage old world techniques combined with the latest computer-controlled technology to bring your visions to reality. To provide complete prototype services, our prototype manufacturing capabilities include:

  • Process engineering
  • Kirksite foundry
  • Tool machining
  • Stamping
  • Hot stamping
  • Sheet metal fabrication
  • Laser cutting
  • Assembly

This range of services allow us to provide complete sheet metal prototype programs in-house, using our experience to provide you with a high quality product. Whether you need sheet metal fabrication for parts to assemble yourself or full BIW, we can design, build, and assemble your parts.  

We also develop custom assembly work cells based on your project’s specific needs to standardize processes and ensure consistent quality through the life of your project. These efficient processes allow for the rapid execution of product and process revisions, including managing master data files, incorporating working data files, and providing updates to all process documentation.
