Rapid Prototyping

If you have a product you’re wanting to put to market, our reliable rapid prototyping service can help get everything sorted as quickly and efficiently as possible.

About Rapid Prototyping

Rapid prototyping is usually called upon when a product needs to be tried and tested before heading to market. It can also be used in the early stages of product design and development. The process is often quicker than standard tooling or injection moulding, making it a fantastic option when time is of the essence.

At Dudley Associates, we are committed to providing our clients with the best possible service and are dedicated to getting the project right first time, every time.

We can assist you with a wide variety of projects, such as, SLA 3D printing, SLS, carbon filled SLS, rapid aluminium tooling and more. Whatever your requirements, you can rely on our expert rapid prototyping team to put together a solution that fits your unique situation.

    Amelia Lucas, Purchasing Co-ordinator at Datum Electronics
    “We were working with Dudley on a complex component that also involved another supplier, almost at the end of the development cycle the 2nd supplier let us down. John and the team at Dudley stepped in to rescue the project showing impressive technical ability and perseverance and leading us to a great end result.”
    Will Penfold, Technical Director at Kelda Technology

    I just wanted to share a quick note from myself and the team and let you know that we were delighted that you could meet both the costs and perhaps, more importantly, the timescale we had to work with. Very glad we decided to work with you again. It’s also worth mentioning that the support and advice that Dudley Associates provided to our design team while transitioning from their concept to the final tooling has been fantastic.”

    “We first approached Dudley to manufacture injection mould tools for us as we thought they offered excellent quality at a competitive price, and we were not disappointed. The tools are of excellent standard and delivered on time. Having had trouble free tools delivered, we now also take advantage of their in-house moulding facilities for small production run which again were completed on time without any problems.”
