A new prototype door handle is 3D CNC machined from a solid brass block for a major lock company. Note the work is "tabbed" in the block and will be cut away later in the band saw. Work was programmed in SurfCam by OMW Corporation.

Prototyping FAQs

OMW's machine shop can produce quality metal or plastic prototypes in single to 25 unit quantity in nearly any material, and sizes up to 24x40" or larger. OMW combines short lead times with internationally competitive pricing. Unlike many CNC machine shops, OMW has experience in both machined prototypes and newer rapid prototyping technologies. Whether your needs are aluminum, stainless steel, titanium or plastic, we can suggest the best approach to your prototyping need and provide a quick, cost-effective solution.
