- There is no need to wait for custom tooling
- It is an inexpensive way to quickly receive highly accurate prototypes in quantities that make sense for this stage in the development process
- Tom Brown, Inc. maintains a very large inventory of foams, plastic products, rubber, cork, and adhesive coated tape materials that can be processed in about 1 day or less.
Water jet cutting is a unique platform to produce parts from foam, plastic, cork, rubber, and many other materials both with and without an adhesive layer. It enables engineers to rapidly acquire prototype parts , begin their evaluation and testing protocols, and quickly adjust to what they learn. There are three primary reasons to why using Tom Brown’s water jet platform for rapid prototyping service makes sense:
