Once your gear and system designs have been optimized, our extensive in-house plastic gear prototyping capabilities allow us to test your design quickly and efficiently, using the latest technologies for high-precision machined, molded and 3D-printed prototypes.  Plastic gear prototyping helps identify any production feasibility or cost issues with your design, allowing for adjustments where necessary.

Capabilities Include:

  • 3D Gear Prototyping via state of the art Stratasys printers. These deliver rapid and precise PolyJet and FDM prototyping across a wide variety of materials.
  • Five Axis Machine prototypes.
  • Precision machined and hobbed gear prototyping in a wide range of materials and configurations.
  • Injection molded gear prototyping via in-house production of aluminum and steel molds. Gear prototype molds typically produce 75-100k cycles and are available within five weeks; Pre-production molds capable of delivering 2 million cycles are also available.

Our extensive in-house rapid prototype capabilities provide us the ability to test your design quickly and efficiently. We utilize the latest technologies for high-precision machined, molded and printed prototypes. The prototyping phase is paramount in identifying potential production feasibility risks or cost-related challenges, allowing for adjustments where necessary.

Performance Gear Systems offers 3D prototyping via state of the art Stratasys Polyjet and FDM printers. These deliver rapid and precise prototyped parts across a wide variety of materials.

We also provide high precision 5 axis CNC machined prototypes, precision machined and hobbed gear prototyping in a wide range of materials and configurations.

PGS also has extensive experience in injection-molded prototyping, via the in-house machining of aluminum and steel molds. Our prototype molds typically produce 75,000 to 100,000 cycles and can be brought on line to produce precise, repeatable parts in as little as five weeks.
