Rapid prototypes, tooling, and product development from CAD drawings.
Start Your Design Now! So you’re developing a new product and need parts fast? It’s time to call Catalyst, a national product development company with an onsite rapid tooling facility. Use our rapid product development tooling processes to create your part from drawing to development to plastic parts in the material you choose in just days.
The focus on Speed to Market is what sets Catalyst apart from other companies. Catalyst is one of the few product development companies that offer rapid tooling and plastic injection molding in the same facility as the engineering and design team. This complete product development business model allows us to decrease time to market in comparison to conventional tooling processes and streamlines the product development process.
Rapid tooling is the fastest, most cost effective way to take your product from 3D to actual plastic parts in a matter of days. Send us your requirements and plastic material specifications. Although our process is fast, we don’t sacrifice design intent or quality. It’s your design, your material, your way!

Whether you are running plastic injection molded parts while ramping up for production or you are working with a low volume part, the Catalyst short-run production processes can get you to market—quickly and cost effectively. Short-run production increases your ability to offer special and custom applications. Whether you have one or one hundred thousand product parts, we can help!
In order to offer the highest quality rapid tooling, Catalyst has developed exclusive, proprietary processes:
* STAT (Sample Time Acceleration Technology) was developed as an alternative to SLA and RTV prototyping and dramatically reduces product development time. In just a matter of days, it allows plastic sample parts to be made in the material of your choice to demonstrate exactly how your product will look, feel and function once it is manufactured. The STAT process is designed to move your product to market faster, giving you a longer shelf-life and the potential for increased profit. With over 96% on-time delivery, Catalyst has become the production partner of choice for Fortune 500 companies across the country.
* SPRInT (Short-Run Production Rapid Insert Tooling) is Catalyst’s lightning-fast and versatile short-run tooling process. Catalyst will build a QC7 aluminum insert tool that runs in our proprietary Uni-Base system and yields higher quantities of plastic parts in a short lead time. This process is perfect for many thousands of pieces and can produce parts up to 18″x 20″ and allows for side features, undercuts, textures, and high polish options.
