At Fralock, prototype manufacturing and engineering is often used as part of the product design process to allow engineers and designers the ability to explore design alternatives, test theories and confirm performance prior to starting production of a new product.
Fralock’s staff of engineers use their experience to tailor the prototype according to the specific unknowns still present in the intended design. For example, some prototypes, in custom manufacturing, are used to confirm and verify consumer interest in a proposed design whereas other prototypes will attempt to verify the performance or suitability of a specific design approach.
Prototypes will be designed, constructed and tested as the final design emerges and is prepared for production. A common strategy is to design, test, evaluate and then modify the design based on analysis of the prototype.
Fralock engineers are prototyping specialists – individuals with specialized skills and training in fabrication techniques that can help bridge between theoretical designs and the fabrication of prototypes.
