Bringing Your Vision to Life: Seamless Prototyping for New Products

From Design to Reality: The Power of Prototyping

Concept Twisty Taps

Malcolm Nicholls Ltd. (MNL) showcases our expertise in bridging the gap between initial product concepts and mass market production, as demonstrated by our conceptual 3D printed, vacuum metalised taps.

From Design to Reality: The Power of Prototyping

These taps were entirely designed in-house using SolidWorks, our preferred CAD software. Once the design was finalised, we utilised our state-of-the-art Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) machine to 3D print the taps in durable PA Nylon.

Elevating the Prototype: Expert Finishing and Metalization

Our highly skilled finishing department meticulously hand-finished the printed taps to achieve a flawless gloss. We then employed vacuum metalising, a specialised technique, to provide the taps with a stunning chrome finish.

Beyond the Prototype: Scaling Up for Success

These concept taps, now proudly displayed in our reception, serve as a testament to our ability to transform innovative ideas into tangible prototypes. MNL doesn’t stop at prototyping, however. We offer a comprehensive suite of services to support clients throughout the entire production journey, bridging the gap from initial prototype to mass market.

Low Volume Manufacturing: Bringing Your Ideas to Market Efficiently

Need to produce a limited run of your product before full-scale manufacturing? MNL understands the challenges of bringing new ideas to market. We offer low volume manufacturing capabilities, allowing you to produce 1 to 1,000s of parts efficiently and cost-effectively. This allows you to test your product with target audiences, gather valuable feedback, and refine your design before committing to mass production.
