You have a design – but you want to SEE and HOLD your product. How do you do that? A good product prototype. Product prototyping allows you to visualize your product in real form. A great opportunity to review and even test future products.
What is Product Prototyping?
A prototype is an early sample, model, or release of a product. It is built to test a concept, test a process, or act as a thing to be replicated or learned from. A prototype is designed to test and try a new design to enhance the usability of the design usually from the feedback of end users. Prototyping serves to provide specifications for a real, working system rather than a theoretical one.
Why do I need a Product Prototype?
Product Prototyping enables you to test and refine the functionality of your design before actually manufacturing your product. Prototyping your product before manufacturing saves you time and money by allowing you to test your idea with end users and iterating on the product design to meet the users’ needs. A functional prototype of your product will speak louder to potential investors and customers rather than a simple sketch of your idea.
What types of Prototyping do we offer?
3D Printing | Cost effective and quickest way to obtain three dimensional form of product
CNC Machining | Ideal for metal prototypes in small quantities
Proprietary Prototype Injection Molding | Recommended for low volume, production quality parts
Why BeraTek for Product Prototyping?
Our product design and engineering team will work directly with you to help chose the best method for prototyping your product. In-house prototyping services allow us to be responsive to the feedback you recieve after testing and reviewing your prototype. Our team will work with you on recommended design changes to keep you moving forward on to the next step in the manufacturing process.
Our 3D Printers are on hand and ready for prototyping! 3D Printing is the fastest way to get a quick prototype in your hand!
The best way to get a production quality prototype, without going straight into manufacturing. It is a step that can save you money if there are changes that need to be made before moving forward!
Feedback and Alterations
Our team is responsive to feedback and alterations that may need to be made to your prototpe. We want to make sure your product design is perfect before you invest in manufacturing.
Prototypes made from our computer software allow us to to get as specific as possible, giving you the most lifelike version of your product that we can get before production.
Color options are available with prototyping as well, just ask us about our options!
Prototyping allows us to decide if changes need to be made, and also give us a great way to approve a final design for product manufacturing.
