About Us

Enterprise Pattern & Prototype, Inc. was formed in 1991 and has since been a full-service pattern shop with extensive experience in a variety of projects ranging from loose-patterns and simple match plates to complex multi-core tooling. In October of 2006 we moved into our new facility located in Jordan, Minnesota, a Southwest suburb of Minneapolis. Our new facility was designed and setup to improve workflow and working conditions throughout the shop. This will help us remain competitive and provide improvements to our customers’ products.

Our ensemble of employees with a diverse plethora of industry experience coupled with the latest design / programming software and machine tools allows us to provide accurate and cost competitive tooling - fast. Employed are craftsmen with backgrounds in pattern making, mold making, vacuum forming, production machining, manufacturing engineering, and the foundry industry.

Our employees have extensive training and experience using our CAD/CAM software, CNC milling machines, and full range of manual mills, lathes and other hand tools. Our pattern making journey started more than forty years ago. We frequently provide consulting to our customers during the early design phases to help cut costs and avoid potential problems further down the development cycle.

We continuously invest in software, computing power, and machine tools creating a complete and homogenous tool build cycle start to finish. Our variety of CNC milling machine sizes and types provide the necessary capacity to build all our tooling ensuring the best accuracy and efficiency.

We design in Siemens’ NX and Dassault Systèmes’ SolidWorks, but can import an extensive list of universal and native files. We use Autodesk’s PowerMILL for 3D tool pathing and Vero Software’s SurfCAM for 2D.
