Prototyping Services by Day Tool
At Day Tool & Mfg, our rapid prototyping capabilities include the production of ABS prototypes up to 10” in length, 10” in width, and 10” in height. Using 3D printing technology, we can produce visual or functional prototypes in a variety of colors. The ability to produce parts in multiple colors is not only beneficial for aesthetics, but allows designers to visualize the different components of an assembly interacting to gain a better understanding of the overall mechanics in a system. Rapid prototyping is a fast and efficient way to prove out designs prior to investment in full scale production tooling. In addition, 3D printing can be used to produce production ready parts in low quantities, which eases the challenges associated with the lead time required to develop manufacturing tooling.
We are AS9100, Rev D. and ISO 9001:2015 certified, and specialize in providing precision tooling to advanced manufacturing customers such as the aerospace, automotive, defense, and medical industries. In addition to rapid prototyping, we offer full product development, machining, fabrication, assembly, and inspection services. This comprehensive offering of services provides customers with a manufacturing solution from concept through completion, backed by the industry’s most stringent quality accreditations.
Lead times average approximately 2 weeks, but are individually evaluated on a job by job basis. For additional information about our rapid prototyping capability, see the table below, or contact us directly.
