Prototypes are useful for testing a design, to see if it performs as desired or needs improvement. Engineers have always tested prototypes, but Rapid Prototyping (RP) expands their capabilities. First, it is now easy to perform iterative testing: build a prototype, test it, redesign, build and test, etc. Such an approach would be far too time consuming using traditional prototyping techniques, but it is easy using RP.
Key benefits of automotive prototyping:
reduced design time and cost
fast prototype turn-around
better visualization of products with a physical, solid item in addition to drawings and computer models
testing can be based on form, fit and/or function
Gerg Products GmbH is your reliable partner for time-focused, swift implementation of ideas in prototypes. Alongside stereo lithography, we offer sinter and FDM parts, which allows us to carry out complex projects. In close cooperation with the modelling department, we are able to assess the feasibility of series production as early as the prototyping phase. With an eye to batch production process engineering, components can be modified and optimized at this inceptive stage of development. Our lean structure minimizes communication problems associated with department-to-department interfaces, and maximizes our flexibility, agility and responsiveness.
