Rapid Prototyping, Short or Long Production

ALCO Manufacturing

Tool and Die Shop
Tooling design and construction are done in our own facility, which includes a complete tool and die shop with WaterJet machining and wire electrical discharge machining (EDM).

We often collaborate with customers to review drawings and provide design for manufacturability (DFM) input, bringing concepts to rough prototypes and then to full production parts. Projects span the spectrum from highly complex electrical and medical parts and assemblies to low cost washers improving product quality and reducing production cost.



CAD (Computer Aided Design)


We understand the tight timelines for new product development, so we strive to deliver prototypes and low volume runs with a quick turnaround.
Once a prototype is fabricated to your specifications, ramping up to volume production is a simple next step and our core business. We have decades of experience building dies and running low volume fabrication equipment as well as small to large quantity metal stampings.
