What is Prototyping?

Date: 14/12/2018

We believe that the key to any successful end product is to perfect the initial design process. That’s why Yorkshire Laser have invested in the most up-to-date design software and experienced team of engineers to specialise in every area of the sheet metal fabrication process.

This process starts with developing the right prototype. But what is prototyping and why is it important to get it right?

Yorkshire Laser use CAD (Computer Aided Design) technology coupled with experienced CAD engineers to create initial prototypes in model space to provide you with a realistic impression on how your end product will look before the production process begins.

If there are any errors or problems, the prototype can be improved and tested again. This goes on until the product is fully functional and suitable. This ensures that your product or part suits your exact requirements as we work alongside you as trusted partners to develop and improve your products.

The prototype can be checked for fit and movement and can save valuable time and money as, once this process is complete, we can quickly and easily produce initial prototypes for you to test prior to series production.

For the next stage of our production process we can offer the use of CAM (Computer Aided Manufacture) technology. This greatly assists with all types of sheet metal fabrication due to the accuracy afforded by CAM software and our machinery.

Yorkshire Laser and Fabrication understand that getting the prototype right is key to the success of any project.   We have invested heavily in skills and technology to ensure our design and manufacturing processes are geared towards the most innovative, cost effective and well-made sheet metal products for you.
