Rapid Prototyping Service
We offer cost-effective rapid prototyping service and low-volume manufacturing service for your custom products.
Rapid Prototyping & Low-Volume Production
In order to ensure the structural integrity of the product and test the solutions for efficiency and redundancy, prototyping is a vital step in the development of your product. With cutting-edge manufacturing techniques like CNC machining, urethane casting, injection molding, metal forming, and 3D printing, we can quickly produce and iterate prototypes for our clients. Your prototypes will be made from the same material as your product will be batch-produced to avoid any complications that may occur while shifting from prototyping to low-volume production. If you need any other manufacturing technologies that are not in our service list, we can also work with outside vendors.
Rapid Prototyping Capability
LEADRP could handle all the complex work through high-quality prototyping and low-volume manufacturing, from your initial parts design to the final products. LEADRP provides complete support and services, including rapid prototyping, DFM feedback, CNC machining, sheet metal fabrication, injection molding, vacuum casting, urethane casting, 3D printing, surface finishing, assembly and post-processing. We’re ready to start working on your project! Here are the rapid prototyping services we offer:
Rapid CNC Machining
LEADRP acquired a large sets of CNC machining centers, CNC milling machines, and CNC turning machines(CNC lathe), CNC grinding machines and CNC EDM machines for your custom metal and plastic parts.
Rapid Metal Prototyping
Rapid sheet metal prototyping is a collection of rapid prototype services for the fabrication of sheet metal components. Sheet metal can be shaped, cut, and assembled in a variety of ways using various metal fabrication techniques, like bending, stamping, laser cutting and welding. LEADRP provides sheet metal prototyping service provides a wide range of metal parts at a rapid speed, from small brackets and enclosures to very large metal pieces.
Rapid Injection Moldling
LEADRP provides high-quality plastic injection molding, precision plastic injection mold manufacturing, plastics insert molding and plastic over-molding service. We are proud to offer rapid injection mold design, engineering, and low-volume manufacturing service for OEM customers.
Rapid Urethane Casting
Urethane casting is also called vacuum urethane casting and cold cast Urethane casting. It is a cost-effective alternative to injection molding and uses no heat, so it can be used for relatively small volume production runs. LEADRP has rich manufacturing experience in urethane casting and can offer silicone mold making service and rapid urethane casting service for our OEM customers.
Rapid 3D Printing
We utilize different 3D printing technologies to create 3D printed parts for clients, including metal and plastic parts. Our 3D printing services are ideal for producing prototypes and small batches of parts, without the need for tooling. Using these advanced technologies, we can deliver high-quality functional parts quickly and affordably. The low cost per unit also makes 3D printing ideal for creating concept models.
Rapid tooling (also known as bridge tooling or prototype tooling) is the process of using CNC machining to quickly create metal injection molding tooling. It is the first step toward rapid injection molding and involves creating a functional injection molding tool in a matter of hours to days, rather than months. Although rapid tooling is more expensive than 3D printing, it produces parts that are much closer to production-level quality, which can then be used for functional testing.
At LEADRP, we use a variety of rapid prototyping techniques and services to produce prototypes of parts and entire products. This is especially valuable for companies that want to test a new part or product design before investing in full-scale production. Because we have several production options, we are able to offer more competitive pricing than many other companies in rapid prototyping and low-volume manufacturing.
How LEADRP Works
LEADRP is a leading provider of rapid prototyping service and low-volume manufacturing service for mission-critical applications in the Aerospace, Automotive, Medical & Life Science, Oil & Gas, Food and Beverage industries, Semiconductor and more.
Frequently Asked Questions
We accept 3D CAD files in STL, STP, STEP, OBJ IGS or IGES format and 2D drawings(jpg, png, gif, bmp, pdf) with dimensional details and specific manufacturing requirements.
We respond within 2 hours after your request. Princing quote will be send within 8 hours. If the quote is delayed, we will notify you as soon as possible.
Yes, master models are used to create silicone molds for vacuum casting and can be made from any rigid solid that can withstand heat up to 100 °C. Models used for CNC machining will be 3D scanned to create a CAD/CAM program for production.
Quality parts less than 1000pcs can be made in as fast as one week if you provide complete 2D and 3D CAD models. More complex parts requiring other special features will take longer. As for shipping, most of our shipments are via air freight, which can take 5-7 days from China to Europe or North America.
We respect your intellectual property. None of your information, images, files or likenesses will be shared with any third party, and it will not be used for any advertising, marketing, or promotional use without your explicit written authorization.
