Prototypes of your rubber product
We create prototypes of your rubber or foam product after the design and engineering are completed. The prototype enables you to test the operation, fitting and processing of the rubber parts in the final application. These parts are fully functional. Prototyping is the final stage before going into production. At this stage, it is still possible to make changes.

Saving on tools
The costs for extrusion, injection moulding and thermoforming in tools are not very high. We have various options to create the right tool at an early stage, at a minimal cost. We can choose to make a one-cavity mould (later expandable), an aluminium mould or a proto tool.
With this affordable proto tool, we can produce a limited number of prototypes for you. In practice, this is sufficient to fully test the properties and operation of the rubber product. This way, you are assured that your rubber product works well and you may save on an extra set of tools.
From prototype to final design
As soon as you have tested the prototype and given it full approval, we make a mould for the final end product – then we are ready for series production. We produce the rubber or foam products in the agreed quantities and deliver on the agreed date.
However, a proto mould is not always chosen. The investment in tools is often so low that the choice is made for proto delivery from the series production mould.
