When it comes to making product housing or parts, prototype manufacturing is an important part of the new product development process. A prototype is simply a model that can demonstrate the quality, function, and fit of a finished product. We know all kinds of industries need prototypes. But prototype manufacturing is typically used for an early model of a product that is applied to develop aspects of the actual finished product. It can be finished in just a few days. There are many prototype manufacturing processes available for the product development team to choose from, including CNC machining, Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), 3D printers, and Vacuum Casting.
Having a prototype provides critical benefits to product development. A custom prototype will help clients to evaluate the viability of a potential product solution in terms of cost, value, and complexity. Custom prototyping also enables the clients to visually see their product before manufacturing and serve as a concept proof. Below are just some of the vital advantages of custom prototype manufacturing. 1. Custom prototype manufacturing helps save money and time. Tapping into the prototype manufacturing process means that you'll get feedback about the validity of a product quickly and budget reduction. 2. You will complete a manufacturing assessment to determine the validity of the process. This assessment is to highlight any modifications before production. 3. It is ideal for market testing. It can be used to gauge how well the concept sells in the market before a more massive production run. 4. It can help develop customized products as per individual requirements. 5. Custom prototype manufacturing helps you determine if one material is superior to another when it comes to the objectives that the product is designed to accomplish.
How can you take something that you have only imagined, or sketched and bring it into a reality? Here are some steps for how a prototype is made. Designing a prototype usually involves using 3D CAD software to create a three-dimension of the product. CAD software enables designers to see all the parts, simulating how these parts will operate, or fail to operate. Once CAD plans are complete, the following step involves making use of some exclusive technology including Stereolithography(SLA), Selective Laser Sintering(SLS), 3D Printing, Fused Deposition Modeling, etc. Other postproduction steps include curing or baking the prototype with intense light and applying a finish or a hardener.
Tuowei Prototype specializes in CNC machining prototype, 3D Printing, (SLA, SLS, FDM ) prototype, RTV prototype, and low-volume and rapid production. We provide the most reasonable price and good quality for our clients. Please check some examples of projects we have worked on and see how they are made.
Rubber Keypress PrototypeRubber is formed by Injection Modeling of Plastic. many people called them "RUBBER" as it fell soft under the normal temperature and no need to be vulcanized. In general plastic industry, The low proportion with low hardness materials called "Rubber". TheInquire
