Make the most of your prototype
The advantage of prototyping your design with RP is that we know how to mass produce your product as well. We can offer design for manufacture advice early in the product development to help reduce costs and lead times to market.Contact Us Today
Prototyping is to confirm the product, whether it is to demonstrate
the appearance and functionality to customers and investors or as an integral part of your design process.
RP is able to quickly create your prototype in both simulated and actual materials and finishes so
that your product will look and feel the way you intended.
Great for 1 off prototypes for the purpose of proving your design. There are some limitations with material selection although high detail and complexity can be acheived with the quickest lead time.
CNC machining uses real production representative material rather than simulant material used by alternate prototyping methods. High precision and repeatability can be achieved with fast lead times.
Vacuum Casting using silicone molds are perfect for short run production and is a lower cost method of producing higher prototype volumes. In-molded textures and colors, over-molding of rubber simulants. RoHS certified materials.
RP has the ability to produce prototype and low volume stamped parts with very fast lead times. The blanks are usually produced via CNC or laser cutting to reduce the lead time.
When the correct grade of plastic or a low volume build is required, prototype injection molding is ideal. We can produce a low-cost mold in as fast as 4 days!
We are able to produce fully functional working electronic prototypes. Contact us about your project.

Don’t wait until you are ready to start production to find out your design cannot be manufactured. Problems can be identified early in the product development process with RP’s DFM (Design for Manufacture) analysis. This can not only save time it will also save money.
