Plastic Prototypes

Why should I prototype?

IPFL have been specialists in plastic prototypes and batch production of bespoke plastic parts for over 52 years.

Since 2003 IPFL have been investing and diversifying our 3D printing capabilities. This has added to the already advanced capabilities of our machining and fabrication department, dramatically increasing our client’s product value, time to market and production error avoidance.

Every product, component or assembly needs to follow its own development cycle. From concept, to design iteration, physical proofing and testing into production; utilising plastic prototypes in your product development process is priceless to gain intuitive insight into the real requirements.

IPFL rely on a selection of processes including CNC milling & routing, forming, laser cutting and 3D printing. These processes are coupled with our ancillary processes to add the essential finishing touches – painting, UV printing, threaded inserts, special purpose coatings (RFI shielding, anti-static, anti-viral).

What are the benefits of Product Prototyping?

  • Speed up time to market
  • Design analysis
  • Proof of concept
  • Quick iteration change with 3D printing
  • Aesthetic Analysis
  • Functional testing

IPFL is a one stop shop for your prototyping and batch production projects.
