Prototyping

 

Product Spring creates proof of concept, design and production prototypes for form, fit and function qualification prior to production.  Our network of China and USA based model shops have capabilities to build the full range of prototypes at any order quantity.  



Model making capabilities include full CAD design, digital sculpting, rapid prototyping, 4 axis milling, CNC machining, sculpting, model making, surface refinement, color spraying and urethane casting.  In addition, Product Spring has electronic programmers who can design and build working PCBA's to be integrated with the mechanical housing to create works like, looks like samples just like production. These prototypes can be used for aesthetic approval, sales presentations, usability testing, engineering design refinement and market research.
