As part of the design and manufacture process, APC Technology is able to produce product prototypes to enable clients the opportunity to provide feedback prior to product development.
Prototyping decreases development time by allowing corrections to a product to be made early in the process. By giving engineering, manufacturing, purchasing and customers a look at the product early in the design process, mistakes can be corrected and changes can be made while they are still inexpensive.
Concurrent engineering is a key method for shortening a new product’s time-to-market. Prototyping improves product development by enabling better communication in a concurrent engineering environment.
3D printing innovation at APC Technology
Since 2012 APCT have incorporated 3D printing into the design department. The initial printer was small and relatively inexpensive as we experimented with the value add and reliability of the technology. It proved to be a huge success with both employees and clients. The ability to see a prototype quickly, in 3D and at a fraction of the previous costs has enhanced business.APCT 3D printing examples
