Prototyping is a crucial step in a smart product development process. Testing the technical feasibility and functionality of a product eliminates risks and ensures that the next phase of product development can be entered with confidence.
For customers starting a product development process with Micronit, prototyping is part of our project approach. But our prototyping service is also available for stand-alone assignments. Are you working on a new product in glass, silicon or hybrid and have you reached the point of having a prototype designed? Read more.
Whether you need a prototype for a microfluidics consumable or for a MEMS product, we have all our regular capabilities ready to manufacture your prototype.
Our production facility offers:
Make use of our MEMS foundry services, including:
For hybrid glass/silicon prototypes, together we determine which processing steps are required.
In principle, we can only produce polymer prototypes as part of a full product development process. Then you can make use of our polymer processing techniques such as hot embossing, milling, 3d printing, coating, and bonding.
• Optical flow cells
• Cell sorting chips
• Optical lenses
• Micronozzle chips
• Microneedle chips
• Dispensers/ microdosing
• Microfluidics for quantum technologies
Of course we want to know a thing or two about your product. In addition to the technical specifications (channel shape, geometry, size/depth of the structures), we are curious about what your product should be able to do and how it will be applied. Prototyping is a very important step in the realization of your product. A well-thought-out prototyping approach prevents disappointments and delays in the future!
Would you like to get some more insight into the steps that are taken in a typical prototyping process at Micronit? See this prototyping document.
