SERVICES: PROTOTYPE MANUFACTURING AND TESTING

Prototype manufacturing

We manufacture prototypes (and low volume production runs) through our manufacturing partners (ISO 9001 certification if required). We can also assist you in finding a manufacturer for larger volume production runs. We work with the following manufacturing methods:

 

  •  Sheet metal cutting, punching & bending

 

  • Extrusion of plastics and metals

 

  • CNC milling & turning of plastics and metals

 

  • Surface coating (e.g. power coating, anodizing)

 

  • Insertion of mechanical fasteners (e.g. standoffs, studs and nuts)

 

  • Welding, brazing & grinding

 

 

 

Prototype testing

Flowtek operates a dedicated testing facility for assessing the performance of cooling systems and determining if a product remains within an acceptable temperature range. Where required,  we develop custom test rigs and automate prototype operation and data collection. Our capabilities include:

 

  • In-situ measurement of temporal and spatial temperature changes to asses the performance of cooling systems

 

  • Surface mapping of temperature using IR cameras

 

  • Characterizing of Peltier cooler and heat sink performance
