A prototype is an early sample or model built to test a concept or process.  Some products may go through several generations of prototyping before a design or concept is finalized. In addition, prototyping is a way to work out any problems or design issues prior to full manufacturing of a product.


Sometimes drawings and dimensions are not available and  prototyping is a way to bring a concept to the initial stages of production.  With the use of prototyping, one can quickly and easily turn product designs into physical samples. Virtual prototyping can be accomplished with 3-D modeling that allows a part or concept to be viewed before it is ever made.  This can quickly and easily identify design flaws and manufacturing concerns before costly samples are made.

Pinto Products Inc has the ability to design using virtual prototyping and then create matching samples.  Call Pinto Products Inc. with your concept  or design and we can make it a reality.

Case History -Stryker Corporation


Stryker Medical was looking to reduce warehouse and shipping cost on  a particular style of hospital bed. The beds were stored horizontally in the warehouse prior to shipping.  A wooden footer and header was attached to the bed and it was raised vertically by crane and rested on the attached footer. The beds were then moved by crane into the trailer and secured for shipment.  This shipping method caused a number of problems including damage to the beds, wasted warehouse space and partial truckload shipments.  There had to be a better, more economical way to store and ship these beds, and Pinto Products Inc. created it!
