Technical feasibility and options testing

Designing your product with the right materials and processes in mind is critical to product function and manufacturability. We can recommend the optimal material or conduct testing of multiple options to find the absolute best choice. 

With our wide range of in-house printing and converting processes, we can suggest the appropriate technology and technique that not only meet your design requirements but provide a pathway to scale up to production volumes when the time comes.

Prototyping

Turning your product from a design file into a working prototype is an all-important step in the development process. However, it can also be time-consuming and lead to delays in your schedule, especially if multiple rounds of prototypes are needed. 

We understand the pressure to get your product to market as quickly as possible. Our prototyping service delivers high-quality conceptual or functional prototypes, including multiple versions in a single run. We’ve worked hard to optimize our process to accelerate yours.

Product Manager

Thank you and everyone at Tapecon for the hospitality and interest in working with us. We were both very impressed with the quality of work that is produced at Tapecon. One thing that I always look for when touring a plant is the level of engagement of the men and women on the floor with visitors. I noticed very clearly that there is ownership and pride among your team and I believe that success only comes when these elements exist coupled with enthusiasm and I was glad to see that yesterday.

President

I am very glad to have a vendor like your company. I received the automatic shipment notification for the 100 pieces. Once I saw the email, I immediately advised the people involved in order to import the part today. I am very glad to have a vendor like your company.
