Rapid Prototyping:

TSE utilizes rapid prototyping technologies to quickly iterate a design concept into early prototypes for evaluation with our customer. Quick turn prototypes can be helpful to our customers in advancing the conceptual look, the function design and can also be used for early functional testing for proof of concept. We use Polyjet, Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and Stereolithography (SLA) equipment that can use a variety of materials, colors and allow high resolution and tolerances.
