So, you’ve been thinking long and hard, and you’ve got an idea for a new product. These are exciting times as you start to envisage what the outcome will look like, how it will work, and so on.
Naturally, you have plenty of steps between your product design and the actual creation of the product. During this time, you need a lot of help to ensure the whole manufacturing and product development process goes smoothly.As it happens, JH May can help you bring your new product design to life – and here’s how:
It begins with an assessment of your product idea. Our design department will work with you to take a look at any mock-up designs you may have. Or, if you have ideas – but no visual designs – then we can help visualise them for you. We conduct all assessments under a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), which ensures that your ideas are kept safe and won’t be shared with anyone else.
Hopefully, we can help you move on from this step. However, there’s a very slim chance that we might not be able to handle your product design demands. In which case, we will try and guide you in the right direction to ensure you get the support you need.
Before any products are created, you must be 100% satisfied with the design and functionality. At JH May, we take your initial designs and create prototypes for you. This gives you a version of the product to look at and test out. If things need to be tweaked, then we’ll get back to work and produce a new prototype. Eventually, we reach a stage where you’re delighted with the latest prototype, and this will basically be the design for your final product.
Following on from the prototype and testing stage, we can move straight into full-scale production. We always design with the manufacturing process in mind, which lets us transition into a large-scale production with ease. This creates less waiting around for you, meaning your new product can be created far quicker than expected.
The secret to our service lies in our high-tech workshop. Here, we have everything needed to bring your new product to life. We can handle the following:
- Large 5 axis CNC machining
- Acrylic fabrication
- CNC milling and turning
- Laser cutting
- Large 3D printing
- GRP moulding
- Paint finishing
- Vacuum forming
- Metal fabrication
- Vacuum casting
In essence, we can help manufacture your product using a range of different methods. This gives us the ability to handle a diverse workload, allowing us to create such a variety of prototypes and models. You get to visit us during the build process as well, so you can keep track of the progress and ensure that we’re following your requirements.
The design and implementation of a new product can be challenging. That’s why JH May is here to make everything more convenient for you. We’ll help with everything from the initial design through to full-scale production. Plus, you get the added benefit of having everything handled right here in the UK. We handle everything, so you can lower the overall production costs and speed up the manufacturing process.
