This is the third in a four-part series discussing how we work with our customers to create a sealing solution for their most critical applications.  So far, we’ve talked about Application Discovery & Review and Commercial Evaluation & Development.  The third step in this process is Prototyping & Testing.

Depending on the nature of the part, the first run of prototype parts will be developed for evaluation and testing purposes using a single or low cavity tool.  With advances in on-demand manufacturing technology, some seal manufacturers now offer rapid prototyping or “express” services, where prototypes can be machined or 3D printed to exacting specifications.  This lowers mold and tooling cost while usually providing a faster turnaround time.
