At The Prototyper, what used to take us a week is now taking just days! New innovative casting equipment and methods have greatly reduced the time it takes for us to produce prototype castings. This accelerated casting process is perfect for engineers needing castings for form, fitness and function prior to hard tooling. It's also ideal for low volume casting projects. This proprietary method is called "Insty-Metals." Visit and learn more about us at:

The Prototyper's Insty-Metal cast metal method combines multiple technologies from both the rapid prototype field and the investment foundry industry. The result is high quality and fine finish castings in just days. These parts can range in size from a few inches to a few feet. Engineers who need only a few castings of such parts as impellers, knuckles, enclosures, shrouds and brackets will find this speed for development invaluable.

Multiple materials can be utilized in this fast turnaround method. Aluminum, steel, iron and zinc parts may all be produced in just days from your 3D data, ready to be machined, vacuum impregnated and/or go through other secondary operations.

Even our normal castings only take between five and ten business days, but can be expedited for a fee and be ready to ship in as little as two business days. Any mechanical or design engineer working in the development of automotive equipment, communications devices, medical equipment, consumer goods or computer components will find this quick turnaround invaluable for their casting projects.

Mechanical and design engineers from around the world - including England and the rest of Europe - can benefit from this short development time. When the exchange rate is also factored in, they will save not only time but also money.

What we do for metals, we also offer for injection molded plastics.

The Prototyper has established sources in both the USA and the Far East. Through our East India connection, we offer over sixty designers who can serve your needs.

At The Prototyper we don't sell companies on a technology and make it fit their project. Rather, we present multiple options for the development of projects and help our customers select the one that best fits their needs based on budget, lead-time, material, tolerance and volume of parts.
