High quality, rapid prototypes. Turn Great Ideas into Products, Fast.
Rapid Prototyping is a valuable step in product development. It provides a real-life product to analyse, test, and improve upon, before final production begins.
At Overmould our goal is always to build prototype parts that match the quality of a final production unit. We want to help you to properly visualise your design, demonstrate your product to your marketing team or your customer, and of course to test and verify that it meets your product requirements.
Our range of services provide our customers with a one stop shop for rapid prototyping and low-volume production parts.
Our experienced team will work with you to decide upon the most appropriate materials and method of production to turn your devices into products, quickly, accurately and cost effectively.
Considerable engineering goes into building prototype units and with Overmould you can benefit from over a decade of overmoulding experience. We are most successful when we work hand in hand with a customer to create a product that meets precise requirements. We analyse and recommend overmould thicknesses, strength requirements, surface requirements, implementation of light pipes, bushing inserts, etc.
After the best approach is determined, we build a single cavity, pre-production tool. The goal in prototyping is to produce final production-like components.
The lessons learned in the prototype phase are then implemented when scaling up for volume production.
