Akebono’s unique approach to prototyping emulates actual production processes and methodologies, utilizing our custom-built equipment common to manufacturing. So much so we can interchange prototype and production dies, if necessary, without any effect on manufacturing quality. Consequently, prototyping actually sets Akebono’s manufacturing production parameters, controlled by design engineers for the life of the product.
During the prototyping phase, our design engineers are in the best position to evaluate the product and provide immediate feedback to colleagues who set manufacturing standards. This approach ensures quality through up-front process control and error-proofing. We use empirical data to validate the performance of prototypes against that of high-volume production products.
