Rapid prototyping

Rapid prototyping – the faster route to series maturity.

From the idea to the model. Rapid Prototyping allows Pöppelmann to create individual testing samples in different materials, even in early development stages. Ideas and developments are therefore fast and cheap to implement (and conceive).

 

From the idea to the model.

We have been working with rapid prototyping in our organisation for many years now (stereo lithography (SLS), selective laser sintering (SLA), 3D printing). When we receive a request for a product, we do not merely devise a drawing for it. Rather, we produce a preliminary testing sample that the customer can grasp, feel and test within a few hours.

We create it on our own 3D printers, which can even print on different materials, both hard and soft. This is how we achieve prototypes that come already very close to the final protective element. So close that the customer can test fundamental functions and properties, such as the way it attaches, its gripping properties or space requirements: does it meet expectations? Which issues have to be addressed? How should it be done? – Through rapid prototyping we show how an idea can be brought into practice in the shortest possible time.

The advantages of Rapid Prototyping at a glance:

  • Effective. From the idea to the model.
  • Versatile. Design, functional and installation prototypes made of a variety of materials.
  • Flexible. 1C and 2C applications.
  • Customised. Sheer or colourful finish.
  • Economical. Models made without special tools.
  • Fast. Time and cost benefits, shorter design times.

Faster and more cost-effective results.

Quickly produced prototypes not only convince our customers that we take their orders seriously, but that we also really understand them. They give their idea a form in an instant. They show them whether the investment they are planning is justified. They make complex, technical connections comprehensible – even for customer representatives who are not experts in plastics – while enabling our customers to turn to their own customers with the prototypes and continue development work with them. They therefore help their product reach market maturity more quickly.
