Sheet Metal Prototyping Services

Available in the US

When a new product or component is designed, at first it is concept driven. Literally taken from the drawing board, or in the nuance of today's design and engineering, a Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) program, and in just a few hours, this product can go from a few lines and measurements on a drafting application to a working prototype you can hold in your hands. Even if you only have a hand drawn sketch, or a doodle on a napkin, APSM Systems can help make your ideas into a tangible prototype.

Prototyping is an important step in design and manufacturing. Sometimes an idea looks great in the theoretical stages, but in order to test its abilities, functionality, and even design aesthetics, at some point you will need to create a prototype. In turn, this prototype can be used in actual integration and testing, and even a small production run which will allow you to provide working components to your customers for potential sales.

Fabricating a Sheet Metal Prototype

Sheet metal is a highly versatile material used in the creation and production of electronics cases, wiring harnesses, computer components, and countless other applications. Sheet metal comes in all sorts of varieties, such as steel, aluminum, copper, titanium, and many other alloys--both ferrous and non-ferrous--which allow designers to create based on the needs and specifications of their product. 

Once a working design is created in a CAD program, the sheet metal can be folded, pressed, rolled, welded, tapped, stamped, cut, and have printed circuit boards or wiring harnesses attached to create a working prototype on demand. From beginning concept to a finished prototype manufactured with a low- or high-volume production demand, all of this is done under one roof. 

APSM Systems is dedicated to quality and accuracy and is there for every step along the way of the sheet metal fabrication process. Whether it is rapid prototype fabrication or mid- to high-volume production, APSM Systems also provides testing and finishing for our customers’ design needs.

  • Sheet metal prototype parts: APSM Systems works with a wide variety of sheet metals, which in turn our assembly line creates finished, working components and prototypes on demand.

  • Produced with quick turnaround times: We know that time is crucial when bringing a prototype to your customers, so APSM Systems can provide a sheet metal prototype in a shorter timeframe than most would think, depending on the complexity of the prototype. 

  • Prototypes designed for manufacturing: Many of our clients demand working prototypes that are designed and ready for manufacturing. APSM Systems takes a CAD design, pushes it through the production process, and supplies its customers with as many sheet metal prototypes as they need for further evaluation, promotion, and functional use as they require. Products that can be powered up, tested, and shipped to our customers are literally hours from becoming a reality.
