Prototype and Short Run Press Metal Parts

Prototype Sheet Metal production is a formative manufacturing process that creates parts from sheets of metal.  3D Quickparts offers a variety of capabilities involving sheet metal such as bending, shearing, staking and stamping.  Common operations for sheet metal parts include drilling, tapping, counterboring and countersinking.

Sheet metal quotes are created from STEP or IGES files.  IGES files are required for production and 2D prints may be needed to specify finish, tolerance and any other special requirements.

Sheet Metal prototypes have typically been a bottleneck for companies whose new products include sheet metal components.  At Quickparts, customers can get those needed sheet metal parts in a prototype assembly in 5 to 10 days
