A prototype bridges the gap between product design and the fabrication of a production-ready mold. It allows you to hold your new part in your hands and make informed decisions as to what materials to use and whether any aspects of the design need to be adjusted.
We use next-generation 3D modeling software and high-precision machining to create prototypes in a wide range of materials and colors. Our turnaround times are the best in the business, and your satisfaction is assured. No matter how big, how small, or how complex your prototype may be, we have the experience and the technology to bring it to life.
The mechanical properties of your prototype will be identical to the end result, helping you bring new products to market quickly and with confidence.
Industries we serve
RMC Plastics serves a wide range of industries and applications, including:
Gas utility companies
Water utility companies
Electrical utility companies
Though we are small, we have the capacity to deliver enough volume to ensure your needs are met.
RMC Plastics also produces prototype molds, a type of mold that is meant for low-production, usually during the concept and development phase. A prototype mold is less expensive to produce than a production mold, primarily because they are only meant to be used on a limited basis.
Having an accurate prototype mold allows you to optimize the design of your product before it goes into production. Our team will work closely with you to ensure that your choice of materials and methods will be the most economical and beneficial for you at every stage.
We work with entrepreneurs
If you are a small startup, you may have found it frustrating to find the right prototype manufacturer. The bigger companies—and there are lots of them in Houston—don’t have time for you and, if they do, they usually want you to commit to more parts than you actually need.
On the other hand, the smaller companies may not have the ideal technologies to bring your prototype to fruition. Some may outsource their more complex prototyping jobs, which adds undue complexity to the job.
RMC plastics lives somewhere in the middle. We are big enough to handle large production runs, yet small enough to deliver personalized custom services. Our team is small, and we are 100 percent focused on your success, meaning that you will always have the benefit of knowing exactly where you stand every step of the way.
As a family-run enterprise with a lifetime of legacy in plastic molding and prototype manufacturing, we have built a solid reputation that is based on experience and innovation. When you work with us, you can be confident that you are getting the benefit of partnering with a company that can deliver.
Types of prototypes
There are several different types of prototypes. What you need will depend on how the prototype itself is ultimately going to be used.
