Rapid prototyping: what it is and how it works
Rapid prototyping is a method by which manufacturers and entrepreneurs can bring a product to life quickly, before introducing it into the manufacturing cycle.
Prototyping is essential for many reasons: it allows you to test and refine the product to perfection before you invest in the manufacturing cycle. It also allows you to present a product to the public, to customers or to investors to gauge interest.
Rapid prototyping is of great value to companies as it allows them to move quickly to take advantage of trends in the market and, as we all know, the first to market will always take the lion’s share of the profits.
We start by working closely with you to understand your idea, the part, and its application.
Since there is a multitude of variables that can affect the performance of your part, we like to dive deep into specifics so that we not only understand your expectations but so that you are aware of the pros and cons of each variable and how your decisions at this stage will affect your long-term results.
Our rapid prototypes are created using an additive process. Using the latest 3D modeling software, we create a computerized simulation of your product. Once the model is approved, we produce the prototype using an injection molding process.
The part is then tested to ensure accuracy and performance before the final mold is made.
Once the mold is complete, we test the molds in a variety of materials and, finally, once samples have been approved, we apply our experience and fleet of injection molding machines to manufacture the parts to your satisfaction.
