Prototyping

Wherever possible a prototype is an important stage in the process of new product development. We conduct feasibility studies on concept designs to help steer a project towards a successful outcome with minimal risk prior to manufacture.

With the introduction of 3D modelling and the latest technologies and processes, the complexity of casting requirements becomes ever more intricate. We are able to respond to all types of prototypes with a rapid turnaround without compromising on quality.

We can also produce prototypes via reverse engineering. This process enables the duplication of an original component by capturing its physical dimensions, features, and material properties. Reverse engineering can be a very cost effective method of producing a casting prototype when the component will be reproduced in large quantities.

We continually invest in the latest testing and inspection technology to assist with the build and accuracy of prototypes. Some of this software leads the way in today's market by delivering a complete CAD-based inspection solution. These deliver fast, precise and graphical comparisons between digital reference models and original parts for first-article inspection, production inspection and supplier quality. The development of full production tooling and systems then becomes a straight forward and cost effective process.
