Accelerating the Design Process

Whatever you are developing and producing – we are able to supply an appearance model with identical ‘look-and-feel’ characteristics and functions to your final production part.

Our team of experts and artisans select from a wide range of additive and subtractive technologies, combined with craftsmanship precision and a range of finishing options to make your design come to life.

Wide Range of Production and Finishing Processes

With the high variety of technologies, a broad range of materials and finishing options, we make your designs come to life early in the product development process:

  • Plastic Additive manufacturing (Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Figure 4)
  • Metal Additive manufacturing (DMP)
  • CNC machining
  • Toolmaking
  • Sheet metal processing
  • Assembly (with hinges, closures, etc.)
  • Finishing
  • A wide range of surface treatment options
  • Integration of electronics and mechatronics including programming

Identical Look-and-Feel Models

There are virtually no limits (except those of physics) in mimicking the quality and aesthetics of the real product. This is true for details like radius, soft edges, flashes, gaps and graphics. It is also true for the ‘look-and-feel’ of the future product. We are experts in surface treatments like painting, chroming and foiling. In our paint mixing room, we are able to match colors exactly to any reference supplied by our customers.

From Prototype to Production with Quickparts

Utilizing a single vendor, Redfish was able to move the iDVM device all of the way from concept through to production.  “The fantastic speed and service we received allowed us to easily navigate through the entire developmental process of the plastic components. We couldn’t have done it without the great teamwork we experienced with Quickparts.”
