Advice from Plunkett Associates
Plunkett Associates experience in the field of prototyping makes for an ideal 'first contact'. Guidance is available as to what options are available to meet specific project requirements as well as awareness of current commercially available technologies to support any recommendations made.
Industry and process knowledge is also key to evaluating projects that may benefit from using Rapid Manufacturing (RM). This emerging sector builds on the capabilities of additive fabrication to produce successful end use parts. Thereby avoiding the use of tooling and opening up huge opportunities for customised short run parts and greater design freedom and integration.
More in depth studies are also available on a consultancy basis, covering most topics associated with the industry from feasibility studies to marketing to process research and development.
In all instances it is best to contact Plunkett Associates directly to discuss the options and how best to proceed.
