PROTO DIE – REAL DIE CASTING PROTOTYPES

We recommend our patented PROTO DIE,
if you want to develop a high-quality, thin-walled die-cast part cost-effectively and in a time-saving manner and require prototypes as well as pilot series.

Save time & costs, ensure quality
With the economical PROTO DIE process, you receive high-quality prototypes made of die casting within a few weeks - with workpiece properties as in series production. Not only do you optimize your component design for series production in die casting as early as possible, but you also shorten the product development process, lower your development costs and reduce the risks during product launch.

Close to series & adaptable
With PROTO DIE, the production of 1-3,000 parts from the same prototype mold is feasible. We already evaluate the molded parts for the future die casting process in the prototype phase. Experience and test results from the prototypes flow directly into the design of the subsequent series tool. With these empirical values, you gain time during mold creation and optimize the release process. With just a few adjustments, you can also use the PROTO DIE mold for pilot series production.

PROTO DIE - Your benefits

  • Reduced product development phase
  • Rapid availability (samples & pre-production series from one tool; product tests and certifications take place before completion of the production tool)
  • Elimination of cost-intensive, off-series test series (milled prototypes or produced from investment castings)
  • Early, qualitative optimization of series technology
  • Reduction of risks during product launch
