What is prototype / mud?

MUD stands for Master Unit Die which is a kind of Rapid Prototype Tooling technology.It’s a manufacturing process of mold that helps, using specialized techniques and equipment, to quickly creat prototypes and production-grade parts.MUD is normally used to test product/tooling design and functionality of a part’s before it goes into mass production, and it’s durable enough to support a good amount of products that meets different requirements & needs in the shortest time with the lowest production cost.

Advantages of making a prototype

Reduce R&D cost to as low as 30%

Fast time to market in as little as 10 days

Shorten engineering verification and training by 65%

Increase ROI by 50%

Prototype Manufacturing Methods

3D Printing

3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is the process of creating three-dimensional objects from digital models. It works by adding material layer by layer to build the final object.

3D printing is an ideal solution for creating one-off or low-volume parts because it enables complex geometries, rapid prototyping, and customization not typically possible using traditional manufacturing processes. 3D printing is suitable for creating prototypes, concept models, functional parts and even end-use products.

YG offers a comprehensive range of high-quality 3D printing (additive manufacturing) services.

CNC Machining

CNC machining, short for computer numerical control machining, is a widely utilized manufacturing process that employs automated, high-speed cutting tools to shape designs from metal or plastic stock.

CNC machines are capable of precision cutting across a wide range of metal alloys and rigid plastics, making custom machined parts suitable for diverse industries such as aerospace, medical, robotics, electronics, and industrial applications.

YG offers CNC services and provides custom CNC quotes.

Vacuum casting

Vacuum casting is an advanced technology that combines silicone molds with 3D printed master molds to produce vacuum cast parts known for their consistent performance and high-quality production standards. This versatile and efficient process is well-suited for manufacturing intricate parts in small batches, offering flexibility and cost-effectiveness without requiring significant upfront investment.

YG specializes in providing low-cost manufacturing of high-quality plastic parts. Our vacuum casting services offer rapid solutions for producing top-quality prototypes and low-volume parts.
