Sheet metal prototyping: customization and standardization

In metal prototyping, customization is key, obviously. Which is why our professionals sit down with the customer to discuss their ideas and go through the whole designing process with them, to make sure that the output is exactly as expected.

With incredible expertise and passion, we can advise them on which techniques and materials are best to realize their project.

Then, once both parts are settled on a specific process, Minifaber can automate it and turn the customization into a standard framework to lower timings and costs of the metal prototyping service.

All the pros of metal sheet prototypes

In the manufacturing world, a sheet metal prototype is a mock-up which is built long before manufacturing begins. Its major pro lies in the fact that it allows designers and engineers to test the metal sheet before fully developing it and starting, for instance, mass production.

However, it also happens sometimes that some engineers choose plastic - which we don’t deal with - for prototyping parts and sheets that are then going to be made of metal.

Except that, from what we have been seeing in our experience, they then turn to sheet metal prototypes for the most various reasons. For instance, they provide:

  • Better mechanical and functional performance
  • More accurate testing
  • Better aesthetics


Metal sheet prototypes for all production runs and sectors

Basically all areas of the economy need some metal manufactures. As a matter of fact, due to their strength, long-term durability, and stiffness, metal components and sheets are used in a wide range of applications such as the manufacturing of:

  • cars, aircrafts, and trains
  • hardware enclosures
  • office tools
  • house appliances
  • computers
  • duct, gutters, and other construction-related items
  • furniture


Whether you need a sheet metal prototype for a big, medium or small-sized production run in stainless steel, aluminum, copper, or brass, at Minifaber you will be sure your need will be fulfilled.

With Minifaber, nothing is impossible. Whatever your project may be, our professionals are able to assist you and suggest the best solutions to realize your metal prototype, following your every wants and needs.
