Intelligence – Insight – Ingenuity

I want prototypes before committing to production tooling

The Challenge

Production tooling is a necessity for parts which are manufactured at volume. Get this wrong, however, and the whole process could grind to a halt.

You need to be confident that the components needed for your project are not only fit for purpose, but that the investment sees a fully functional, market ready product.

The Solution

We understand the issues involved with committing to production tooling and for this reason we offer a full range of prototyping options – from simple nylon 3D prints, right through to sand cast or machined from solid full-function samples, ready for testing.

Producing a prototype allows the designer and project engineers to review the component design, using best practice techniques such as Design for Manufacture (DFM) or Design for Assembly (DFA), and provides the opportunity to carry out tests for Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA).

This diligence gives businesses the information they need to progress with a project – confident in the knowledge that the components are all fit for purpose and that investment will see a fully functional, market ready product.
