30th Anniversary for Prototype Projects

Written by: Prototype Projects Ltd | Published:

Prototype Projects are experts in providing rapid prototyping and model making services to product designers, engineers and manufacturers throughout the UK and Europe. Established for 30 years with a long-standing reputation, Prototype Projects employs the latest technology and skills to answer the most demanding prototyping and modelling requirements.

We service many industries and currently supply the Automotive, Pharmaceutical, Medical, Computer, Industrial Engineering and Consumer products markets.
Prototype Projects was founded in 1980 to provide a full prototyping service. Following continued investment in technology and skills we provide the most up to date service for rapid prototyping from concept models through to fully functional pre-production prototypes.
We have a passion for providing results to prototyping requirements and deliver customer service with high integrity to an industry where you need more than just technology to supply a solution.
This strategy of continual review and investment in both people and technology has enabled us to provide customer satisfaction for over 25 years. Our service is quality led, working to certified ISO 9001-2000 and beyond.

RP Systems
We have the latest RP machines and materials allowing us to produce for you highly complex,
3-dimensional parts direct from your CAD data. These can be turned around in a very short time at low cost. The parts produced are of the highest quality and accuracy. These can be finished in our model shop and are excellent for functional testing, product simulation or for casting masters.

Stereolithography (SLA)
The Viper SLA enables customers to choose between standard resolution mode for the best balance of build speed and part resolution, and high-resolution (HR) mode for ultra-detailed small parts and features. In addition, the system builds parts with a smooth surface finish, excellent optical clarity, high accuracy, and thin, straight, vertical walls - ideal for a wide range of solid imaging applications.

RIM and Vacuum Casting
By creating cost effective soft tooling, usually via a master, we can produce Polyurethane (PU) parts to mimic production materials with the properties you require, from flexible to rigid, clear to coloured and heat and flame retardant. Tooling can be from Silicon, GRP or CNC'd from resin board for longer tool life. Parts can range in size from buttons to bumpers.

Rapid Tooling
For rapid tooling, we can replicate a component using aluminium, resin which is poured around a master and post cured at high temperature, it can be polished and cored to suit. This can generally be done in approximately 5 working days from master approval.

CNC Machining
As specialists in fast accurate high tolerance machining, we know that you and your products are unique. Because of the special way in which we are structured we can give you a fast a bespoke solution to your CNC requirements. If you need a one off or a batch of parts, we are able to supply what you want from the material you want the time you want!

Prototype and Production
Injection Moulding & Tooling

For rapid tooling, we can replicate a component using aluminium, resin which is poured around a master and post We produce prototype aluminium or fully hardened fully automatic steel injection mould tools. We have the latest CNC, spark
erosion and surface grinding facilities in house to ensure you the highest standards in quality
and accuracy.
