The Role of Rapid Prototyping in Product Creation
Die casting is among the most versatile metal fabrication process. One of its characteristics is the use of a mold cavity with molten metal put at high pressure. This allows die-casting to meet its design requirements during the process. Here is further insight into some of the die casting benefits and limitations.
The Benefits of Die Casting
Die casting is a high production efficient process. Overall, the process is easy to automate and machines. This is an important benefit as seen in a hot chamber or cold chamber die casting machine. It takes about 50 to 90 times per hour to make parts using a cold chamber machine. For the hot chamber machine, it takes about 400 to 900 times per hour to make parts using the same machine.
Varied Surface Textures
At Creatingway, we can achieve use die casting in many finishing techniques to achieve various surface textures. It can either be a smooth or textured surface for a part.
One of the important die casting benefits is its ability to mass-produce parts. The parts produced are also durable and dimensionally stable. This reduces the need to have extra machining as a post-processing requirement. Therefore, it is more economical to produce with die casting.
Below are examples of some context we consider.
· Organizational Culture
This is a key factor when coming up with a prototype strategy. It is one of the most taskings to change and measure. For one, the culture of startups differ from that of large and mature companies when rapid prototyping. One glaring strategic difference is choosing between specifics –driven or prototype-driven ones. Startups can use an array of early prototypes during product creation. However, larger and more mature companies may not find this method to be of benefit. This is since they deal with mass products and thus need them to stand out more.
Both ways represent the basics of how we can choose to handle rapid prototyping. It also determines how we can use prototyping in product creation efforts.
· Role of the Audience
Any product design must consider the importance the target group plays. The type of audience may affect a few critical choices. This may be in terms of how we construct or present the prototype. Knowing one’s audience and what they expect aids in the creation of any new product. We especially focus on the products’ resolution and fidelity.
We prefer HD prototypes when aiming to impress a less critique audience. It also helps in persuading and gaining feedback. However, the flashy prototypes may mislead the client. Luckily, we know how to carefully deal with the fine line and avoid lawsuits.
· Time in the Creation Process
It is our opinion that this is the most vital factor in determining a prototype. The general view here is that the prototype gradually improves throughout the creation process. This is valid if you consider the product design of the whole product system. However, an array of problems may come up in the later stages. Luckily, we can deal with it using simpler prototypes.
