Parts manufactured affordably? Or affordable manufactured parts? These two statements sound the same but can mean

consistently with little issue. Enter Prototyping.
As a metal products manufacturer, we are often working as a third party supplier to original equipment manufacturers
(OEMs). Tier 1 providers work directly with OEMs to design solutions, and then hire companies like KMC Stampings to make the

Prototyping is a must for our customers when bidding for these types of projects because third-party providers need to be
100 percent confident that they can mass produce the metal components they said they could, at the price and timeline they
said they would. Following are four benefits to investing time and money in the prototyping process. Read more.
