Prototyping and Design
Columbia Tech advanced prototyping services derive from expertise in design, engineering, and contract manufacturing.
Flexible Prototype Manufacturing
Columbia Tech’s advanced prototyping services derive from expertise in design, engineering, and contract manufacturing. Real-world product development can require prototyping services to reflect rapidly changing needs. Columbia Tech has the flexibility to cope with rapid prototype design changes. Columbia Tech can then seamlessly transition prototype manufacturing projects into full volume production. Columbia Tech integrates business, engineering and manufacturing expertise to meet clients’ early product lifecycle targets.
Prototyping Services for Scaled Product Launch
Columbia Tech’s dedicated Scaled Product Launch (SPL) program manages every detail of the product launch process, from prototype runs to pilot production. The SPL process brings together mechanical, electrical, software, quality, and manufacturing engineers to ensure the highest degrees of technical excellence and execution.
The initial phase of our SPL process examines the product documentation to ensure any potential obstacles are discovered and resolved prior to production in order to minimize the need for additional design changes. Next, our materials and engineering teams work closely with our customers and suppliers to meet aggressive prototype launch timelines. Capital equipment in place at Columbia Tech, such as flying probe, AOI, and X-ray inspection, helps to reduce up front tooling costs for small production builds and keeps prototype costs low.
