Prototyping is a critical step of the manufacturing process, during which a preliminary model of the final product is made.
This sample product allows designers and engineers to evaluate the effectiveness of the design and make any final tweaks before a product goes into full production.
We know prototyping offers incredible peace of mind by ensuring a design is truly ready for production before it actually begins. When you work with VMS, we offer prototyping services for precisely this reason and consider it a vital step in the manufacturing process, as it helps prevent delays, waste, and additional costs during production.
The VMS Advantage
We provide a number of key advantages to help our clients get ahead of the competition.
Keeping your project in-house from start to finish helps you save time and slash production costs. In addition to our prototyping capabilities, we offer a whole collection of additional services, so you can go from prototype to production under one roof.
Our global sourcing team combines in-house coordination with on-the-ground efforts in the international marketplace to expand your sourcing options from both domestic and international suppliers.
Standard and Custom Tooling Options
We'll align our tooling resources with your budget and timeline to get the job done. As a VMS client, you'll be able to choose from our vast collection of current in-house tool dies, or work closely with our tooling engineer to make modifications. If neither of those options work, we'll design and build a brand new tool that perfectly matches your project's unique criteria.
Our manufacturing facilities are all ISO certified (ISO 9001), and our team of experts is well-versed in UL, CSA, NSF, ETL, and CE standards.
