Quick turnaround times, concept to product
Shalimar utilizes master molds and other pre-designed quick tool systems for prototyping components to reduce the lead-time for our customers. These systems have been engineered to reduce the time-to-market for prototype production from steel tools, which ensures prototypes are representative of production components.
Prototyping times vary from 1 week to longer based on component complexity, please speak to one of our team members for timing on your specific project.
