Prototypes enable management teams to get a feel of what your business has in mind for new products and, most importantly, how your ideas will positively impact the bottom line.
Creating prototypes is more than just the delivery of more solid presentations; it is an highly practical manufacturing strategy. Prototypes provide the best testing models because they are a physical manifestation of the product and can be tested to find any characteristics that could make or break the design. Manufacturers can then take the information gathered from the prototype and make changes to the actual product.
There are key differences between prototypes and actual products. Such differences usually appear in three fundamental ways:
• Materials - Prototypes are engineered using less expensive materials. Products that will be produced using titanium, for example, will often have prototypes made from plastic, white metal, and/or steel.
• Processes - While a manufacturing company will eventually produce the product, is it more economical to outsource the prototyping and hire a company that specializes in prototypes. A good prototyping company will save a manufacturing company time, manpower, and money – and can deliver and be trusted with an original design.
• Lower volume - Prototypes are considered “dry run” products, and, as such, the production numbers are much lower.
To provide our clients with the best representation of your ideas, we offer solid model files with exploded views and detailed part drawings to back a prototype project. This give you the clearest view on the realization of your idea... before you spend large amounts of money. We also provide the bills of materials, so you’ll know what and how much you are spending before you do so.
