At Salt Lake Cable & Harness, we specialize in manufacturing custom cable assemblies, wire harnesses, and electromechanical assemblies. Our team accommodates both prototyping and production projects, regardless of where the customer is in the product life cycle. The standard lead time for prototype and low-volume quantities is four weeks, but assemblies that use off-the-shelf components can be ready in as little as a day.
Our Prototyping Capabilities
Equipped with extensive industry experience and engineering knowledge, our team has what it takes to help companies—especially startups with little to no engineering expertise and capabilities—bring their product designs to life. Our prototyping capabilities include:
- Product design engineering consultation
- Product design optimization and modification
- Functional prototype development
We offer contract prototyping capabilities without requiring a commitment to a full production run. Once a prototype design is tested and approved by the customer, it can be sent to full-scale production—either in our facility or that of another company—depending on their preferences.
Key Considerations for the Prototyping Process
Our engineering team has extensive experience producing prototypes for electromechanical parts and products. When working on a prototyping project, some of the questions they may ask a customer include:
- How does your [the customer’s] market work, and how does your product work in the context of the marketplace?
- How does your device function?
- What are your project goals and budget?
- What are the environmental performance requirements for the product?
The answers to the above questions help us understand the expectations of the customer so we can provide an appropriate solution for the project. This includes ensuring the finished prototype has the necessary performance characteristics and the project remains within the estimated budget.
