Rapid Tooling & Prototyping
Advanced technology without the people and processes to make it efficient and quick, is of no benefit. Before or in conjunction with the addition of leading-edge technologies like Rapid Tooling, a successful company will work on its business and production flow. If high-speed machining is available, but the backlog in polishing is extreme, the only result is creating more work in progress faster. Without overall efficiency, the buyer may not see a reduction in the delivery time and will not consider the service to be rapid. For all these reasons we use rapid tooling.
Application Concept - Communicating design
Ideas to others Form/shape - Use variations of design to obtain feedback on aesthetics/ergonomics
Functionality - Use rapid prototyping for assembly or fitment testing Tooling - Dies for injection moulding, casting patterns for lost mould/investment casting processes Rapid tooling - Silicone rubber moulding
