What should I look for in a prototyping or low-volume manufacturer?

Finding a low-volume manufacturer that can quickly provide quality prototypes and production parts is critical. A manufacturer with excess capacity won’t be swamped by a large rush order that could delay the delivery of your parts. Look for an efficient supplier that can provide parts in a few days or weeks, not months. This is particularly beneficial during product development of medical devices where having quick-turn production can allow for multiple design iterations in a condensed time-frame. This will prepare your medical device in a better way as it moves through gate approvals towards FDA certification.

How do you determine if a company in streamlined for quick-turn production?

Look for a technology-forward company that embraces both software and manufacturing hardware. If there is a long drawn out process from the time they see a CAD model to the time it goes into production, you lose valuable development time. Look for responsive automated quoting, expert manufacturing design feedback, ability to speak to an application engineer, advanced CAD software, high-speed manufacturing equipment and most importantly, the ability to meet deadlines.
There is more to it than just the software. Check the technology in the shop. equipment changes etc.. With a variety of technologies, such as multiple 3D printing methods, CNC machining, and injection molding capabilities, a company can save you time and money while scaling from prototyping to market launch. However, if a company that only offers one process saying that their process is the best, you may want more research before giving it your business. A company capable and experienced in multiple manufacturing processes can help  you guide to the best one.
