In industry, the process of bringing a concept to the manufacturing floor and conducting full-scale testing to perfect a component or part is known as prototyping. Using Computer-aided-drafting (CAD) and computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM), a concept can be digitally designed and tested before a single die is cast or hole is drilled. Once a successful computer design is made, the design is transferred to a variety of departments or equipment to complete a wide range of manufacturing duties,all of which follow the exacting design of the CAD or CAM instrument. JH May is a United Kingdom-based company that has met these needs for decades with loyal repeat customer base. They provide the whole prototyping package, and can manufacture your product once the prototype is right.

Your concept, design, and standards drive the process as JH May from start to finish. The relationship is that of a partner; a partner that has the experience, resources, and ingenuity to quickly, efficiently and successfully meet any challenge you face. Sophisticated software tests each design and offers modifications that will better meet your needs. This is made possible by state-of-the-art industrial modeling software using proven mathematical, physical, and engineering formulas.

The manufacturing phase of prototyping can be a wild rids with many different possibilities and processes to best meet your manufacturing needs. A few of these processes will be briefly described.
Stereolithography, SLA, layers resin by laser to gradually build your component. Selected Laser Sintering, SLS, uses a high-power laser to fuse a 3-dimensional object from glass, metal, ceramic, or plastic powder. Fused Deposition Modeling is an additive process to build a component from a CAM software program by melting a metal or plastic filament in a numerically controlled process to form the desired object. Vacuum Casting is a process by which the desired product is drawn up into the cast from below to form the cast object. Metal Casting is done by pouring a liquid metal into a mold that fits the design criteria. RIM Moulding - Reaction Injection Moulding is the process by which the two parts of a polymer are injected into a mold under high pressure and left in the mold so that the polymer cures into the desired shape. CNC Machining - Computer Numerical Control Machining is the process whereby a part is designed with various tools through a numerically controlled code that fabricates the desired part or component.

Prototype testing includes in-house design testing to check for design or manufacturing flaws, ensure safety, and verify functionality. Your prototype will then be in your hands to do additional testing. During any phase of the process, if design flaws or needed modifications arise, the process begins again with new design information to alter the existing design. Only when the design is right does full-scale production begin, with the exact specifications of the prototype.

JH May's long-lasting commitment to excellence sets them apart in the prototyping enterprise. Their partnership with your business will strengthen your business through their excellent service, experience, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. Prototyping can be a challenge and an expensive one, but utilizing a partner such as JH May will give the professional expertise you need with a cost effective price tag, providing you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing someone has your back.
