How certain are you that your idea to a new product will actually work when brought to life? We help our customers with rapid prototyping so that great ideas can turn into successful products faster.
In developing a new product it is necessary to create a functional prototype to test and verify that it works as desired and expected. The best way to know what works and what doesn’t in the real world, is to rigorously test, evaluate and refine one or several physical prototypes.
We have made thousands of assessments and know what to look for to make sure that all problems are solved before you are ready to move to the next stage and invest in tooling and commercial production.
For more than 35 years we have developed exciting products together with our customers. We have created smart watches, mobile phone accessories, electronic locks, ticket validators, electricity metres, gaming controls, medical instruments, rugged PC tablets, and more.

Based on mechanical, hardware and software studies and assessments we create a system overview. We propose a conceptual industrial design, including a physical dummy.
The industrial design is set and we create the initial design of PCB as well as decide the final selection of material (including mounted PCB) sources and suppliers. A working prototype is presented to the customer for testing and verification versus the DRS. This includes a mechanical prototype. We use our 3D printer to create the physical prototype, parts or components. The prototype is often very important for our customers so that they can show the product for its stakeholders.
The PCB design and material is finalised, as well as the mechanical design. The product is now committed and any changes at this stage will impact cost and time. Final regulatory measurements are made at an accredited laboratory. We send the final design tooling specifications to a tooling manufacturer and start preparations for volume production.
We validate and prepare the product for industrialisation and the first manufacturing batch. Here, we collaborate with the customer’s supplier. Source files are committed and design locked. We fine-tune test systems and finalise quality procedures. If the customer wishes, we can help the customer to choose supplier through our daughter company Swemake.
Sometimes minor changes need to be made to the product. It might be product refinements or updates, or that a component needs to be replaced due to cost reasons, delivery problems from a sub-supplier etc.
