Prototyping

Preliminary models to illustrate a concept or fully functional and “production level” prototyping capabilities and everything in between are available from The Weiss-Aug Group.

Metal Prototyping

From solid models, we can deliver accurate prototypes to you in days or emulate a production process utilizing laser, machining, P-ECM and prototype tooling, depending on your prototype needs. For example, quick turn prototypes from our LaserLab Technology center combined with Chaku Chaku (single piece flow) manufacturing support preproduction builds. We can even reel-to-reel laser cut metal coil to facilitate easy blank development.

Plastic Prototypes

For multi-material prototypes, we will often use a combination of prototyping technology. Plastic components can be fabricated through additive technology and assembled through UV adhesive or welding.
