Prototype Design with the Boyd Engineering Team

Boyd’s mechanical, thermal, electrical, industrial and tooling engineers are specialized in integrating a broad range of technologies into a single component, bringing together environmental sealing, thermal management and protection solutions. Engineers at Boyd are adept at innovative problem-solving, advanced modeling capabilities, and trained in design techniques that allow for a smooth transition from concept to prototype to production. Boyd prototyping accelerates your new product introduction processes by decreasing the number of prototyping cycles prior to mass production runs.

Our engineers partner in a relationship to suit their customers’ needs- acting as a consultant, an integrated part of your engineering team, or fully designing and prototyping solutions for you. By partnering with our engineering team, you benefit from integrated solutions for more optimized prototypes built to exacting requirements. We help you accelerate your time-to-market and broaden your access to innovative solutions while decreasing development cycles and costs.

Design Manufacturability



Every solution that Boyd engineers develop deeply incorporates Design for Manufacturability (DFM). We understand how cost, efficient fabrication and assembly affect the bottom line and ultimately define the success of your product. Our engineers utilize technologies that meet or exceed functional requirements while still best serving cost-effectiveness and ease of assembly when in mass production. Boyd's state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities and global supplier networks allow our team to quickly and creatively fabricate innovative prototypes for concept evaluation, validation, and testing. We ensure these prototypes are accurate representations of production parts and can be scaled to mass production with efficiency.

Fast Prototype Fabrication



We understand how critical time-to-market is to our customers’ success. Dependent upon application specifics, rapid prototyping capabilities can produce precision converted prototypes as quickly as 24 to 48 hours. Prototyping with Boyd enables you to iterate designs more quickly, enabling you to fully develop products faster than competition with lower development costs.

Testing and Validating Prototypes



Boyd engineering teams are well versed in testing and validation practices for a wide variety of industry standards and requirements to ensure designs meet your needs. With our dedicated design labs and testing facilities, engineers quickly and efficiently validate and test design ideas.
