Quality, Design and Test Services

Design and Testing
ART Metals Group well staffed/ diverse employees understand the importance of design and testing. ART Metals recommend and are involved and focused on critical characteristics of your parts from design to production to gauging and assembly.

ART Metals believes to produce quality products, one must know and understand the critical/functional characteristics of a part. We will manufacture various prototypes to achieve maximum quality at minimum cost. Once designed and manufactured various tests will be run, establishing that all requirements are met. ART Metals staff will then recommend the best processes to manufacture your part or assembly. This process will include all necessary gauging, inspections and tests required to insure quality parts time after time.

Prototyping
ART Metals will manufacture prototypes for your project to achieve maximum quality at minimum cost. This early involvement assures both ART and our customer fully understand the critical/functional characteristics and how the process affects them for each part. Once produced, ART participates in inspection and testing to assure that all requirements are understood and met.

Tooling Design and Process Development
The best customer experiences start with well designed tools that create robust processes. At ART Metals, we involve everyone from the start of the project to help create a smooth product launch. The customer works with the engineering staff, Tool and Die Makers, Press Operators and Quality Assurance personnel.
