It is not only the finished prototype that is interesting from a product development perspective.
There is much to be learned by looking at the processes needed to produce the finished product. By building prototype production equipment in the early stages of product development, we can determine what kind of equipment is required in a full scale production; and therefore predict the cost efficiency of the finished product.
This sort of assignment is very typical for us, and many prototypes by Soltech have provided valuable lessons for the end production. Typically our prototype production equipment is fine tuned in a final stage and transferred to the customers own production.
