Prototypes & Low
Prototypes and Low Volume parts are cut by a CNC controlled laser, waterjet or
turret press and formed using a CNC controlled press brake or an OBI press when
special forming is required. Star can develop prototypes directly from a CAD
file eliminating the drawing release cycle during product development. Star can
also scan a flat blank developed by any means utilizing our laser scanner and
create a DXF file which can be used to generate a part program. Star offers
prototypes and low volume production with aggressive delivery schedules and
Star's team will work with your design team during new product development. This
value-added service assists the customer in creating a high quality product
which is easily produced which helps reduce part cost. Star is well equipped
with an integrated computer system utilizing AutoCAD and has the capability to
directly transfer CAD files and specifications.
Star uses various methods of production to meet the needs of all customers. Low
volume parts are manufactured using CNC controlled equipment. High volume parts
are manufactured using high-speed presses and progressive tooling. Stars Tool &
Die department designs, builds and maintains the progressive dies and also
designs and develops special cutting and forming tools for low volume parts.
Star remains flexible in manufacturing to allow for growth of products from low
to high volume, while remaining price competitive. Star's integrated computer
system allows for customer tracking from order entry through shipping. Our
system is networked throughout the manufacturing process and scheduling.
