APC uses the plaster and sand mold process to produce prototype castings in aluminum, magnesium and zinc.

Our prototype castings offer you an economical way to prove your designs before you invest in more expensive, permanent tooling. We like to think of it as “design insurance” - our prototypes help ensure your design is optimized to avoid costly complications.

With our prototypes, you can:

  • Check the design integrity and eliminate potential errors
  • Reduce tool building costs and time
  • Reduce problems or delays in the development of permanent tooling                     
  • Save valuable time with interim casting production during die construction
  • Use the prototype to run engineering tests
  • Gain time to finalize the design accurately
  • Anticipate and solve non-casting production problems, and
  • Get your product to market faster.
