Many of our customers come to us in the prototyping stage of product development with the need of having parts made quickly for testing and fit up reasons. Whether the prototype parts are sheet metal fabricated or welded assemblies, we have the ability to produce trial parts quickly and accurately. One of the reasons this is possible is Duggan’s tooling is engineered and produced rapidly in-house, which is efficient and economical for our customers. Additionally, these parts are generally made to a precision greater than production tolerances and quick assembly fixtures can be produced from customer CAD designs in parallel with part production, adding to the value of selecting Duggan Manufacturing as your industrial prototyping supplier.
We have stamping presses with capacities from 10 to 1200 tons and sizes from as small as .25 inches up to 14 feet. The thickness of materials we generally work with range from parts as thin as 0.002” and as thick as 1”.
We have assembly capabilities that are limitless in size for MIG and TIG hand welded parts. Spot welded parts can be made in all different configurations, with as many as five different parts, or a 5 T (thickness) part weld can be accomplished with our equipment. We offer remote laser welding at the prototype level as well. Our fiber optic laser welding systems are capable of sheet metal prototype volumes as well. We have been producing laser welded prototype parts for over a decade.
