Helical Products Company, part of the MW Industries family of companies, announces their new prototype cell dedicated to quickly provide new designs for test and evaluation reducing the lead time for prototypes by over 50%.
“For the past 40 years we have been manufacturing custom couplings, u-joints and machined spring prototypes and the lead times have been consistently the same in this competitive marketplace.” Said Leroy McChesney, Helical Products General Manager. “We created our new prototype cell to allow customers to evaluate the unique problem solving capability of the HELI-CAL Flexure in a time frame previously not available, enabling them to go to the market place sooner.”
Customers from virtually any industry are now able to develop their own design or work with a Helical applications engineer to create their custom prototype and get it to the market faster than ever. Now with equipment and staff whose sole purpose is prototype manufacturing, the lead time for complex parts has been reduced significantly on most new designs.
With the new machine cell, Helical will be able to develop more new designs, assist more customers and get new products out faster. With the rapidly changing economy, this quick service will help customers get the parts they need so they can integrate them into their systems to begin functional testing.
Helical’ s new prototype cell is up and running processing prototype sample orders.
