Prototyping services

Rapid prototyping is an excellent tool which can be used to streamline the overall design/product development process, achieving a shorter time to market.

Design, Test, Evaluate — Prototyping

Prototyping can be an important part of product design, allowing our engineers to develop and test improvements to existing designs or in creating new products. In some cases, a series of prototypes will be designed, constructed and tested. This, in turn, refines the design before it is put into production.

Because DTB is an engineering and test facility, it provides us with a great advantage when it comes to research and development, prototyping and product design.

The outcome of testing a wide variety of products gives us insight to what kinds of components work in all kinds of conditions and in all types of environments. This gained knowledge, is then applied and incorporated into the development of the prototypes that DTB is involved with. This in turn has historically provided DTB and its customers with prototypes that are more successful in a shorter amount of time, while automatically incurring less cost in the developmental phase.

Prototype Design

At Dayton T. Brown we have designed, developed and fielded specialized test equipment for both the military and commercial markets.

Our core design competencies reside in the development of hydraulic and pneumatic test systems as well as electronic and electromechanical systems.

Rapid Prototyping

As part of our Design Engineering Services, DTB can provide rapid prototyping of 3D CAD Solid Models using solid free-form fabrication techniques such as Stereo Lithography or Fusion Deposition Modeling (FDM) from a network of qualified suppliers.

These processes take 3D CAD Solid Models to physically prototype the part using a variety of materials.

Turnkey Design and Fabrication Services

What is unique about the Lab Div. at DTB and valuable to our customers, is we consider ourselves to be a “One Stop Shop” company. When it comes to reverse engineering and prototype development, DTB has the unique capability to design, fabricate and test both new and redesigned existing products.
