Prototyping

FDM

Using the best equipment prototype makers and companies use, our Stratasys UPrint, we can create practically anything out of ABS material. This is a layered filament based process. Basically you have a continuous plastic ABS line that is injected out of a nozzle. On lower volumes these parts are great for first article prototypes. They however can also be used for manufacturing purposes as well. Once designed, and according to ongoing interactive client feedback, the developing product’s electrical, electronic, and electromechanical components are quickly changed into viable prototypes for further testing and perfecting. Techniques include Fused Deposition Modeling, where a model is produced of the completely functional product including paint, silk-screening, PCB’s, ribs, bosses, and all sorts of components that the working unit may ultimately contain.

CNC

According to CAD data developed, prototypes could be rapidly and price-effectively machined into an array of engineering materials using 123’s condition-of-the-art CNC software and equipment.

SLS / SLA Modeling

Based upon product needs, prototyping might be performed using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) (utilizing a fine powder) or Stereolithography (SLA) (utilizing a liquid resin), both extremely quick, cost-effective, and-definition processes.

Composite (Carbon Fiber) Mold Processing

Through the years we’ve become one of the main design firms that create products using carbon fibre technology. Military standards have pressed our design team towards the limits to produce more rugged but lighter enclosures withstanding a 9mm blast and simultaneously pass IP 65/67 mil-spec needs.

Soft Tool Over-Molding

Incorporating an more and more wide range of thermoplastic elastomers, soft-tool overmolding provides a good amount of novel color, texture, and tactile choices for effective, comfortable, non-slip, and abrasion-resistant handles, grips, along with other products and product parts.

Thermoforming

Using vacuum developing, mechanical developing, or pressure developing, adopted by advanced finishing techniques, 123 engineers can establish prototypes offering close tolerances, tight adherence to specifications, and sharp detail.

RTV / Silicone Tooling

When multiple copies of the master prototype part are essential, RTV molding effectively and inexpensively creates silicone molds able to reproducing outstanding detail together with versatility, both most helpful characteristics within the prototyping stage of product design.
