Prototyping

Block models can be machined in modelling board or foam directly form CAD modelling data to give a 3D visual appearance using our high-speed 5-axis routers.

AV Engineering can also produce ‘soft’ tooling to manufacture a prototype in thermoplastic materials so items can be tested for the intended environment.

Prototyping like this can save time and money before committing designs to large-scale production.  The areas where prototyping can be most effective are:

blow moulding
rotational moulding
injection moulding
thermoforming
