Prototyping

When time to market is critical, customers contact Lupton Associates.  We can quickly develop a model via the use of 3-D CAD, stereolithography, CNC/CAM machining, traditional pattern techniques, cast tooling and component fabrication.  Depending on the process selected, one part or several thousand can be produced prior to the release of production capital.  Whether the purpose is to verify the design or to provide pre-production quantities, we can select the appropriate process and materials to get you to market as quickly as possible.
