In a recent survey of design engineers , Product Design and Development magazine found that four major challenges exist in the new product development process:
1. Project management
2. Controlling costs
3. Improving time to market
4. Component selection
Graphicast helps our customers meet these challenges everyday through our Rapid Prototyping and Design Services. By working with us early in your design process, we can help you design a part as a casting right from the conceptual stage. This helps lower costs by incorporating as-cast features in your parts to minimize machining. It eliminates the need for several iterations of prototypes and designs, greatly reducing time to market. It makes the component selection process straightforward, as the mechanical and physical properties of our ZA12 alloy satisfy many demanding design requirements. And, by working with Graphicast, one aspect of your project management challenge is greatly simplified, as Graphicast takes responsibility for getting your parts to you on time and on budget.
