Our customers need to be 100% confident that KMC can produce the components they need at the price and timeline agreed upon. Prototyping makes this possible.
KMC has invested in people and equipment that are solely focused on engaging our customers’ designers and engineers to work through the iterative process of design development, culminating in a prototype. Prototyping minimizes the risk to OEMs and third-party suppliers given the expense of manufacturing and tight timelines.
There are many benefits to prototyping:
- Verifies a part’s design, confirms fit and tolerance requirements.
- Engages both teams to form a partnership around the product’s technical requirements, not just the commercial expectations.
- Produces a physical sample that’s indicative of the production process prior to investing capital for the durable tooling.
- Improves the manufacturing process and can shorten the development cycle while assuring that critical development milestones are achieved.
