Prototyping is a vital step in validating your product idea and supporting your goals as an entrepreneur. At ASK Research & Development, our mechanical expertise and fully-functional prototype shop—complete with welding, fabricating and machining capabilities—serves as the bridge between design, engineering and manufacturing.
After our initial consultative session, prototyping services allow clients to:
- Validate ideas, functionality and performance. A proof-of-concept prototype allows for evaluation of the engineering function of a product while also helping to identify challenges and potential areas of optimization.
- Protect intellectual property. When applying for a patent, a proof-of-concept prototype provides invaluable support and can even offer insight to make additional patent claims. The contacts we have developed over the years allow us to serve as a resource during this process.
- Evaluate design. While not functional, a proof-of-design prototype offers a full-size impression of the product for feedback and approval, and for investors to review.
Expertise Makes the Difference
While ASK Research & Development has the tools, equipment and materials to deliver prototypes based on your sketches, patent or working prototypes, it’s our expertise that allows us to deliver what you truly need—insight into your product’s functionality and potential. Plus, our flexibility and drive toward innovation allow us to complete prototyping services quickly—often 5 to 10 days—allowing you to fully capitalize on your idea without losing time or money.
