- Production parts: Within 6 to 8 weeks
Typically, we can go from concept to production in less than 12 weeks.
From Idea to Prototype
We take your idea, a sketch on a napkin, a drawing and/or concept and turn it into reality. Depending on the complexity involved, American Cable can typically manufacture a pre-release sample or prototype within two weeks time. We can do this quickly because we design and tool our own dies, molds and fixtures.
Once we have your approval on the prototype, we begin the tooling stage.
During the tooling stage, we incorporate any changes, suggestions or modifications you require and provide you with detailed drawings/specifications using our AutoCAD or Pro-E software. Your product is rigorously tested to ensure that it will meet and exceed your expectations.
Once the pre-production samples have been validated through extensive testing and you are satisfied with the product, we proceed with hard tooling or production. Throughout this stage, we continue to work closely with you. We visit your site or go into the field as necessary to guarantee the final product fits your specific application by ensuring the installation and integration of the assembly with your equipment.
Our goal is simple: provide a high quality product that can be installed quickly and efficiently, making the cost to the customer the best overall value in the industry.
