Building on our expertise in product engineering and prototyping, Paramount PDS has become a world leader in rapid tooling. Our services are distinguished for utilization of the most advanced concept/bridge, prototype and low-volume rapid tooling processes, and materials in the creation of tooling through applications of high-speed CNC machining, and stereolithography. Paramount PDS has set new standards for rapid tooling in a variety of industrial and consumer product applications.
Rapid tooling continues to offer opportunity for discovery. During the mid '90s when the phrase "Rapid Tooling" was first used, it described any method that would replicate an injection mold to manufacture a physical plastic or metal part. The name was coined as an extension of rapid prototyping. Rapid tooling included the development of rubber molds, plaster molds, ceramic molds and metal molds. Today, advanced technologies, processes and business practices are the foundation upon which rapid tooling is no longer dependent on prototype models and has become an established practice in widespread applications, saving manufacturers considerable time and money in product development.
