Many rapid prototyping processes are great for testing form and fit, but often times there is simply no substitute for testing with the real injection molded parts and material. When your production tooling won't be ready for months, injection molding is a great way to receive parts quickly and inexpensively. We can use various materials and techniques to create bridge tooling for prototype testing and evaluation.
At Schmit Prototypes, our in-house technologies provide complete tool making capability and immediate support for product modifications. Injection molds can be produced in cast steel, aluminum, P-20 or high-grade tool steel. Aluminum can be used if your volume requirements don't justify the higher cost of steel tooling. Aluminum can be very cost effective.
We can deliver prototypes and short-run production engineering-grade thermoplastics fast, reducing your time to market. Our variety of press sizes allow us to meet your plastic injection molding needs from 10 to 100,000 parts.
