Your source for prototypes and prototype tools

At Phillips-Medisize you may choose among a wide array of prototyping options to suit the needs of your program, and your budget. 

Your prototyping solutions are positioned for success with Phillips-Medisize. That’s because our in-house design development experts take the time to verify your concepts for manufacturability. This step can reduce your overall program investments by helping you achieve: 

  • High-quality solutions
  • Reduced program costs
  • Shorter time-to-market
  • Greater program value

To further your design, you may take advantage of our expertise in designing and manufacturing prototype tools, typically from aluminum or P-20 steel. These tools produce anywhere from 100 parts to many thousand, giving you more data to validate the final design and prepare for low- to high-volume production. Three levels of prototyping are available to you:

Level 1 Prototype – RPTech™ (Rapid Process Technologies)

  • Rapid tooling when you “need parts fast,” with lead times measured in days
  • Up to 8 x 14 inch part size
  • Molds constructed from aluminum or P-20 steel
  • Manual side actions to form undercuts

Level 2 Prototype

  • Allows more complex geometry and larger part sizes than RPTech
  • Molds constructed from aluminum or P-20 steel
  • Undercuts formed using either manual or automatic side actions
  • Production representative tool and process

Level 3 Prototype – Market Entry/Pilot

  • A great option for low-volume programs or scaling up for high-volume production
  • Molds constructed from P-20 or hardened steel for longer tool life
  • Undercuts formed using automatic side action only, to support lower cost production and process validation
