Tooling & Prototyping

High-quality tooling plays a pivotal role in component manufacturing. When OEMs require tools for prototyping, production or mass production, A.L.P. has the capabilities to meet every requirement, contributing to successful product design, cost, quality and performance.

At every A.L.P. manufacturing location we offer a full range of tooling design, production and maintenance services to support and enhance our production technologies. Our tooling capabilities enable us to serve as a true partner with our customers, working together to effectively manage cost-effective, timely product introductions, and achieve other product life cycle management objectives. A.L.P. tooling experts can support the various costs and complexities associated with product maturity, production timing and projected volume.

And, when time is a critical factor, A.L.P. offers “fast track” tooling services, leading to speedy prototyping and expedited product introduction. Our fast-track services include Renshape short production thermoform tooling and mold base/insert combinations for injection molding tooling. For larger or longer production runs, other advanced tooling methods can preserve design features while keeping costs, quality and specifications in line.
