Prototype Parts and Die Casting Parts. We can help you develop your metal product with prototype parts. Kinetic Die Casting Company can make prototype metal parts for our customers, to use for evaluation, prior to making die casting tooling.

We have produced many types of “pre-production” or prototype parts for our customers. We have produced the following types of parts:

SLA
SLC
Sand Castings
Prototype machined parts
Custom Metal Parts …… READ MORE

We can take your 3D model and create a Stereo Lithography ( SLA ). SLA is a process that converts a three dimensional (3D) file into a plastic part in a matter of a few hours or days. Kinetic Die Casting has provided many SLA parts to prove a design for our customers.

With the SLA we can then make a SLC or Sand Casting. A SLC is when we coat the SLA with a material to create a “one up” tool …. Metal Prototype Parts

A sand casting will use the SLA to “make an impression in the sand” over an over to make a few parts.

In some cases, we can modify an existing die casting part to use as your prototype. In other cases, we can machine your parts from raw aluminum using a CNC machine.

Custom Metal Parts – Prototype Parts Options

Stereo Lithography ( SLA )
SLA is a process that converts a three dimensional (3D) file into a plastic part in a matter of a few hours or days. Kinetic Die Casting has provided many SLA parts to prove a design for our customers. Sometimes a customer needs a sample of what will be produced in the die casting mold to prove “form, fit or function”. Many times a simple SLA in hand answers many questions. SLA parts are fragile and can be broken if dropped.

Prototype Casting
Prototype castings are produced using a special SLA as a template for a form and then a few castings can be produced. The process is very fast and accurate for prototype custom metal parts. Many times parts can be produced in less than a few weeks. These parts are aluminum and are more sturdy than the plastic SLA parts.

CNC Custom Metal Parts
CNC machining of custom metal parts is less expensive when producing more than a few parts for prototype. The 3D model can be translated into a machining program and as many as a few hundred parts can be produced in a week. These parts are machined in metal, usually aluminum but can be steel. Steel is heavier and steel may not be stronger than aluminum.
