Rapid Prototyping

One of Palmer Associates great strength is prototyping capabilities at the premises. We realize the importance making parts quickly to test or to prove a brand new concept. We have dedicated space to build a prototype machine and do a small production run. Besides most of the measuring equipment, we have all the traditional machining equipment like milling, lathe, drilling, etc. as well.

“In the Global Product Innovation group at O-I, we commissioned Palmer Associates to develop a test instrument that would allow us to quantify product innovation. The team at Palmer worked with us to define a scope and list of critical deliverables that would meet the needs of the project, but we had a hardware/software prerequisite we wanted to incorporate into the instrument. Palmer had no previous experience with our choice of HW/SW, but embraced the challenge. Marv and his team at Palmer were creative and persistent through the invention and concept phase; swift and efficient through the execution phase and comprehensive through the validation phase. The project is now complete, patents are pending and customers of O-I are engaged with this new capability thanks, in large part, to the team at Palmer.”
