Innovation is also about de-risking.
In the early stage, both feasibility and desirability are in question. And, when it’s about a physical product like a connector or a connectivity solution, a key step in the de-risking process is fast prototyping.
Additive manufacturing (very often called “3D printing”) is a critical capability in this process, as it enables us to transfer our ideas from an abstract world to the physical world in just a few hours, exploiting the full capability of our Prototyping Cell. It helps us to assess both feasibility and desirability in a very short amount of time.
