The plastic prototype was a medical disposable Laparoscopic surgery component. The lead-time was on the 11th hour. Hit the ground running is what our core business is all about. This particular design and budget didn’t allow for traditional plastic injection molding, yet rapid prototyping methods while fast were a bit too limiting. Our method here at Phoenix Proto
is a perfect blend of both worlds of rapid prototyping and traditional tooling.
The customer was understandably nervous, even though she found us through a colleague reference… Short lead-time, multiple parts with different issues, new supplier… not exactly a project destined for coming together on time. In the current climate, she must have not only had her resume updated, but lit a few candles hoping we wouldn’t let her down. She sent her files in and we got her quote back the same afternoon. We committed to getting her medical disposable Laparoscopic surgery prototype project of 8 parts back within 3 weeks.
