Prototype Machining and Design For Manufacturing

At RH&M, one of our specialties is delivering reliable, modern prototyping and design services for industrial or commercial machinery. We work with you on your designs to ensure they’re production-ready and to check for problems you may encounter in future production. This allows for a smooth transition from design to manufacturing, ensuring that your goals are clearly met and your equipment is up to the high standards of your end users.

We understand that designing machinery for your application is a complex challenge. That’s why prototypes can be so beneficial in the early stages of production. We’ll work directly with you to ensure your prototypes meet the needs of your application and review any designs you might have for future products.

Ensure that your machine works right the first time with RH&M’s prototype machining and design for manufacturing services.

Benefits of Machine Prototyping

There are many ways that a machine prototype could benefit your manufacturing process. Partnering with RH&M for this service can set your operation apart from your competition while ensuring the continuing support of your end-users, as well as offering

Design Validation

Validate your design and ensure the final product meets the desired specifications and functionalities.

Reduced Development Time

By pinpointing potential flaws in early designs, manufacturing time is optimized, leading a quicker time-to-market.

Cost Savings

Identifying and remedying design issues during production reduces costly modifications in later manufacturing stages.

Increased Feedback

Operational machine prototypes allow for collection of feedback and incorporation of end-user preferences.

Greater Quality Assurance

Iterative prototyping allows for refinement and improvements to design, creating an overall better product.

Streamlined Production Processes

Prototyping and design helps refine production efficiency while minimizing waste, streamlining production processes.

Partnering With A Professional

Partnering with RH&M for your design prototype is a critical step in a streamlined, quality-controlled production process. 

At RH&M, we understand that during the product design process, partnering with a professional can be invaluable to long-term success. We bring years of proven experience in prototyping, design for manufacturing, and machining to the table.

We assess, test, and evaluate designs to identify potential problems and make improvements to working prototypes. This allows you to start industrial production with a fleshed-out model and avoid costly hang-ups down the road.

How Our Prototyping and Design for Manufacturing Process Proposal Service Works

The purpose of industrial design prototyping is to validate design concepts, identify potential issues, and make necessary adjustments before the final production phase.

Unlike digital prototypes or miniatures, physical prototypes offer a tangible and true-to-life experience, allowing you to see exactly what you’ll be getting and how it integrates into your manufacturing process.

Throughout the creation process, our prototypes evolve to become increasingly concrete and detailed. Validation with customers or real users is conducted at the end of the process when prototypes are sufficiently advanced. This iterative progress ensures that the prototype aligns with the intended design and functionality.

Initial Consultation and Conceptualization

Discussing the purpose of the product, target audience, functionality, and any specific features or design elements the customer envisions.

Design Proposal

Visual representations, design concepts, and an explanation of how the proposed design meets the specified requirements.

Fabrication and Prototyping

Once the design proposal is approved, the prototyping phase begins. A prototype is created to provide a tangible representation of the product.

Iterative Feedback

Feedback is provided on the prototype, addressing potential concerns or proposed changed. Any revisions are implemented. This process is repeated until the customer is satisfied with the prototype.
