Automotive Prototyping​

We are experienced in automotive prototyping, and enjoy working with all types of technologies that will quickly make your design a reality.

How prototyping is used during the phases of automotive product development

Automotive prototypes play many roles in the product development phase, we’ll work together – and with you – throughout every step of the automotive design and development process.

Automotive designers realize ideas to real objects by creating scale prototypes in the form of clay modeling and later reverse engineering techniques will be used for scanning the model to get the CAD models and to optimize the design. This basic prototype works both externally – presenting to clients and stakeholders – and internally – in collaborating more deeply with your team, or rallying them to support a new idea.

Engineers will create a series of automotive functional prototypes, and place the prototype products in the existing automobiles to to see how the automotive prototype will fit in the vehicle and interact with the other parts, and help evaluate design, materials, strength, tolerances, assembly, working mechanisms, and manufacturability.

The task of this phase is to validate the production process with automotive prototypes so that engineers can identify possible production problems and determine the most cost effective manufacturing process.

Engineers collect customer feedback of prototypes to determine how well the vehicle is ideal, what problems may arise, and to select the right materials for the final vehicle. Best product are designed through multiple iterations with feedback from users.

Automotive prototype is vital for safety testing. The prototype vehicles loaded with the test part are placed through different scenarios and subjected to extreme conditions to identify any problems that could hamper the use of the product or cause serious safety concerns to consumers.

With low volume manufacture, we provide end-use parts quickly and cost efficiently, which have the production quality instead of prototypes still in development and testing phases.

    From full interior mock-up which include dashboards, consoles, door panels and pillars to exterior components such as bumper, grilles, headlights and taillights lighting prototypes, our team relies on its advanced machining process portfolio, and blending these with surface finishing operations, traditional hand skills, and in-depth know-how to support at all levels for the auto industry.

    Apperance Models | Optical Component Prototypes of Automotive Lighting Lamps
    With more continuous improvement technical skills and advanced equipment, we are capable of processing all kinds of outer lens, inner lens, reflector, light pipes, flat guides, and massive guides in any complicated shapes, which require 3, 4, or 5-axis CNC milling, and even the latest diamond machining technology by Single Point Diamond Machining or Turning (SPDM or SPDT).

    1. Minimum machining radius R0.1mm for optical details
    2. Surface tolerance of optical area ±0.02mm
    3. Surface roughness after CNC machining and mirror polishing, Ra0.1μm, and Ra0.02μm, respectively.
    Functional Prototyping | High Precision Automotive Components
  • Using the same material as the final parts, realistically simulate the mechanical function, electric performance, thermal properties of the end-use product.
  • Creating a more complex prototype of working mechanisms to check form and fit, and ensuring that all parts fit within an assembly.
  • Creating high-precision functional prototypes to measure, compare, or check design errors, dimensional differences, and tolerances acceptable.
  • Low-volume Production | Rapid Injection Molding
    Rapid injection molding provides a better choice for those carmakers and their suppliers needing low-volume molded parts. It can not only manufacture hundreds of production-grade plastic parts for verification tests close to the final product but also provide on-demand production of end-use parts for low-volume manufacturing.
