Prototype And Testing

Prototype & Testing

Merritt has expertise in prototyping and testing the designs created by its team or customers. We also builds proof of concepts during its design stages to ensure the working of functions and features meets the product design requirements.

The process followed for the prototyping:


Based on the requirement team plans for the process like 3D printing, vacuum moulding, and direct machining/soft tooling of parts to avoid expensive tooling development


Merritt has an ecosystem of partners to develop sheet metal parts, plastic parts, machined parts, and wire cut parts, springs and other specific parts to meet the prototype requirements. Merritt also develops a new supplier base for the added new commodities


Our team uses its in-house facility/ecosystem of partners for advanced measurements like VMM, CMM, 3D scanning & mapping, gear testing, spring testing, Etc. to meet the stringent Quality requirements


Engineers carry out the assembly and testing of the prototype and generates the reports to validate the assembly aspects, functional and other critical parameters as defined by its designers or customers


Team conducts the troubleshooting activities during the prototype testing, provides the root causes reports and also provides recommendations for an optimized design


Merritt collaboratively works with certifying agencies to certify the design functions and zone-specific regulatory requirements
