Designing a new product and then jumping straight to production without first making a prototype to test is like playing Russian Roulette with 5 bullets in the chamber.
Manufacturers produce product based on the prints (engineer’s drawings) or samples provided. Factories are not responsible for defective product if the prints or sample are not representative of the final product you want.
Imagine importing hundreds or thousands of a product that were defective, just because the product hadn’t been prototyped and tested. It wouldn’t be your best day.
The only way to know if your product functions properly is to produce a prototype and then test it. Having a good trial product made by a prototype manufacturer is also needed for market research so you have a tangible, working representation of your product to show your customers.
When you’re ready to go into production and have large quantities of your product made, the manufacturer will need prints showing all dimensions and specs of the product, and/or a complete sample made from a prototype manufacturer.
A vital element in the development of a new product is the prototype. It is the first example of an invention demonstrating form, fit and function. As a working model, it verifies the design with respect to tolerances and fit, ease of assembly, appearance, ergonomics and functionality under operating conditions. In short, the prototype converts an idea to practice. This is a great as a standalone service or to aid our engineers in general design work, DFM (design for manufacture) and fault finding.
At InnovME we work with prototype factories, machine factories, plastic molders and fabricators, sheet metal factories, welders, and electrical & mechanical technicians to expedite the prototype fabrication quickly and effectively.
InnovME has prototype testing of components and assemblies also in its portfolio. This will help our customers to arrive at design solutions in a single step by partnering with us. We have tied up with major certifying agencies and test shops for conducting such activities. Typical testing projects include static / dynamic loadings, durability testing, NVH testing, crashworthiness testing etc.
