LeClaire Manufacturing has a proven record of high-quality aluminum prototype machining. Our CNC machine operators have the training and experience to manufacture quality aluminum prototype parts for any application. From rapid prototyping through production, LeClaire can help you enjoy long-term cost savings while capitalizing on new business opportunities.
Advantages of Our Prototype Development Services
Manufacturing a prototype can help your business prove product viability and capture new sales opportunities. Here are some of the benefits of our prototyping service:
- Show investors or potential customers a functional model of your product
- Identify design flaws early in development and reduce expenses
- Streamline production by selecting a single-source provider of prototyping and machining services
With a functional prototype, you can simulate the functions of your product, validate design, and correct flaws early in development. Our functional prototyping capabilities allow you to manufacture a sample of your product for real-world testing – bring your design to life and get rapid feedback from your stakeholders.
From Prototyping to Production
At LeClaire, we can take you through the entire manufacturing journey from prototype to low-volume production and manufacturing scale-up. Once prototype development is complete, we offer on-site batch production capabilities – one-stop prototyping services and production from a single manufacturer. Learn more about our machining services, sand casting, and permanent mold casting.
Low-Volume Manufacturing Services
Our low-volume manufacturing service is ideal for when you need production-quality parts in volumes of 100,000 or fewer. With LeClaire, you can bridge the gap between aluminum prototype development to full-scale production so you can capitalize on emerging markets.
