Engineering - Prototypes
Border Engineering specialise in prototype work, in particular for the automotive industry.
Working closely with our customers we can provide design concepts quickly
as well as following up with revisions and multiple variants to customer specification. Typically prototypes go up to five revisions.
Much of our prototype work is destined for specialist applications and conversions for vehicles. However we undertake prototypes in all fields of industry. Because of our experience we can provide valuable assistance throughout with regards to design for manufacture and cost reduction in order to address future high volume production efficiency issues.
Client confidentiality is always a key consideration so you can rely the security of your prototype concepts with Border Engineering. We are also happy to make site visits to discuss customer requirements.
Below are a few examples of prototype work that we have carried out.
sheet metal bracket is typical of components
commonly supplied, an OEM part for a Vauxhall
tooling for this component was no longer available.
The customer supplied the part which we then
replicated using prototype methods.
Drawings are not always required. This hand brake item is typical of
the type of product that Border can reverse engineer. There are very
few items that we cannot reproduce due to the diversity of our skills
