Prototyping/Product Development

GFM maintains full service prototype capabilities. The prototype process allows customers to accelerate the verification of design, material and manufacturing feasibility, for faster overall product development.

In most cases, prototypes are produced with details that will be used in the production tools, reducing overall tooling costs. In addition, GFM’s process mirrors the concepts and equipment of the production setting, so that customers are able to evaluate parts in final form before production begins.
