ICP’s Rapid Prototyping Capabilities

Rapid Prototypes of Parts to Be Produced from Flexible Materials

Our ATOM Flash-cut 30155 dieless knife cutting table gives us the capability to produce part prototypes, samples, and pre-productions runs quickly because the design is downloaded directly to the table and no tooling is required. Here’s what that prototyping and quick-turn manufacturing process will look like:

  • ICP uploads your 3D CAD design directly to the Dieless Knife Cutter
  • ICP produces a prototype or sample for immediate testing (no tooling required)
  • You test the prototype
  • If design adjustments are necessary, ICP produces another prototype
  • You approve the parts
  • Production run begins

Rapid Prototypes of Parts to Be Produced by Plastic Forming 

Do you need to test the design before pulling the trigger on production molds? Talk to ICP about using prototype tooling for a quicker turnaround and lower cost when testing your new project’s design. Coupled with our 5-Axis CNC machines, this process provides a seamless approach for proving out your concept. Check out the prototype process below:

Let's Start Something great

  • Part is formed using prototype tooling
  • ICP uploads your 3D CAD design directly to the 5 Axis CNC
  • ICP produces a prototype or sample for immediate testing (no tooling required)
  • You test the prototype
  • If design adjustments are necessary, ICP produces another prototype
  • You approve the parts
  • Production run begins

Large Part Prototyping

When producing large thermoformed parts or vacuum formed components, our 5-Axis CNC Routers give us the capability to produce large part prototypes, large part samples, and pre-production runs of large plastic parts quickly:

  • Part is formed using prototype tooling
  • 3D CAD design is downloaded directly to the 5-Axis CNC technology screen
  • ICP produces a prototype or sample for immediate testing
  • Customer tests the prototype
  • If design adjustments are necessary, ICP produces another prototype
  • You approve the parts
  • Production run begins

Rapid Prototypes of Parts to be Produced by Plastic Fabrication 

When producing parts by plastic fabrication, our experienced fabrication staff can produce part prototypes, samples, and pre-productions runs quickly.
