Prototyping in aluminium, magnesium or zinc
We use many different methods for casting prototypes - depending on your requirements and wishes.
If we can’t produce your prototype with one of the recognised methods included here, we would like to collaborate on the development of new methods so you can get a prototype that meets your requirements.
We manufacture prototypes by the following processes:
TempoForm (Investment Casting)
The TempoForm process is perfect for the extremely rapid manufacturing of metal parts in aluminium, magnesium and zinc. Since there is great design freedom the TempoForm process is perfect for casting parts that are complicated or impossible to cast with traditional casting methods. This means that this technique can be compared with rapid prototyping.
Delivery time: 1-2 weeks.
TempoCast (Plaster mould casting)
With a specially developed plaster mould casting process acquired from the United States, we can produce functional prototypes in aluminum, zinc and magnesium, which can be compared with die cast parts.
Design specifications are the same as for die casting, and we can cast parts with a wall thickness from 1 mm in local areas.
Delivery time: from 8 days.
We die cast functional prototypes in aluminium, magnesium and zinc in special tools designed for prototype production. The characteristics of the prototypes are exactly the same as for products manufactured in high volume, and as such they can be used directly in the final construction, crash tests etc.
Design specifications are the same as for die casting, and we can cast parts with a wall thickness from 1 mm. This method allows you to make adjustments to your tool quickly and inexpensively.
Delivery time: 4-8 weeks.
