Folding up sheet metal prototype the blanks
Sheet metal prototype production is often carried out by us in support of our customers when developing new products. That prototyping can take many forms. Perhaps just laser cutting out a flat blank which our customer may then drill off themselves to explore the best position for connectors in an electronics enclosure. It may be folding up a couple of components but not welding or painting them so a customer can test the fit of parts before committing to their first batch of units. We may also cut and fold several thicknesses of the same bracket so our customer can work out which one is stronger enough for their needs with going over the top on weight.
Even though we can provide 3D software models to help with design sometimes only a prototype will do. For instance when you have a new light fitting reflector. A sheet metal prototype would be needed to measure the light output (photometrics). Design adjustments made and then on with order production.

Prototyping is all part of V and F Sheet Metal supporting our customers. We want you to get your designs right. It saves you time and money and makes us all more competitive. Supported with the ability to import and export 2D and 3D data the prototyping process can be quick and relatively painless.
If you have a product and you are ready to start testing please let us know. We can produce prices for prototypes and production volumes. Simply e-mail your drawings or give us a call and we can have a chat.
