Rapid Prototype Service
Our in-house rapid prototype shop is equipped with CNC Machining, sheet metal fabrication,Urethane casting, allowing for fast turn around of prototype parts.
We often prototype parts and components throughout the product development process to assess their fit, form, and function. The prototype technique we use is dependent on the quality, time and functional requirements for the part.
What is a prototype?
A prototype is a representation of a design produced before the final solution exists. It allows you and potentially your future customers to understand the product. Prototype models are often used for photo shoots, trade shows and exhibitions, customer feedback, and design verification purposes.
What are the benefits of making a prototype (for your company and your customers)?
One of the crucial stages that remain part of the product development cycle involves the development of a working model which allows you to:
Test various design features
Verify design functionality
Review initial product shapes or branding images
Elicit feedback from customers or early adopters
Use the prototype as a test-bed for developing additional features
Identify issues as early as possible within the development stage and before going to production
Provides a physical model for company stakeholders to review and obtain a greater understanding of the product
