Prototypes to Production Manufacturing: The Process

Part Two

We are continuing our series on preparing for the prototypes to production manufacturing process.  Our previous article discussed developing a concept and planning a budget.  Today, we will examine two more areas that play a crucial role in ensuring your project is delivered on-time and within budget.  Let’s take a look:

Material Selection

Material selection is an important component when planning a prototypes to production manufacturing project.  We need to ensure that the materials selected not only fit within the budget but will also fulfill the overall objectives.  You don’t want to manufacture a part or piece using a material that will eventually break down or is not rated for how it will be used as an end product.

CAD Design

Once you’ve outlined a concept, established a budget and determined the materials to be used, the next step is CAD design. JW Machine employs an exemplary CAD design team that renders 3D models and 3D drawings for our prototypes to production manufacturing clients.  These models/drawings bring your project to life and allow us to evaluate the overall design and make adjustments as necessary. The final CAD design is then programmed into our CNC machining equipment to deliver the final product.

When it comes to precision CNC machining, JW Machine is considered an industry leader.  We work with companies and government entities to produce and deliver their prototypes to production manufacturing and contract manufacturing projects.  We are also an AS 9100 certified machine shop and perform many jobs on behalf of the aerospace, defense and OEM parts industries.  Our comprehensive machine shop services include milling turning, laser cutting, laser engraving, close tolerance machining and small part machining.  Give your friends at JW Machine a call to learn more today!
