Prototyping is a process in which a supplier helps an engineering firm to manufacture an example of a newly engineered product or component. The component is manufactured in order to try to find ways to improve it before it goes into massproduction or an application.
Fabricators that do prototyping are normally good at making quick changes to their production and they should provide feedback during the process. The far most common changes are for economical reasons; quicker production usually means better production economics. It is also common that weaknesses are found, and they have to be corrected to ensure that the component will work as intended or to increase its lifespan.
Prototyping within the fabrication category means that fabrication is the main part of the production, but it usually also includes machining, plastic, rubber and electronics to some degree.
Post project to suppliers with Prototyping capabilities
Prototype cleat discs are required as soon as possible, on behalf of a manufacturer of decking systems. The client is looking for a supplier who can deliver quickly and to agreed deadlines, as the parts are urgently required for load testing. Those with the capacity and capabilities to assist are asked to make contact with the buyer as soon as possible to be considered.
This metal spinning company, who spend around £80,000 a year on outsourced fabrication, requires the assistance of a supplier who can manufacture the prototype design of this roller sling assembly, which - if successful - will lead to repeat orders for the chosen supplier. Supplier input as to best method of manufacture is welcomed and delivery is required within 2 weeks of order placement.
