Mobile Devices

Model Solution has prototyped and manufactured a wide range of smartphone models, housings, cases and other mobile devices for its mobile customers. Model Solution has developed full appearance models of mobile devices, allowing customers to see and feel their products to ensure that they meet their original design criteria – and to experience their products as if they were already in production. Smartphone housing and case designs have originated in Model Solution’s Innovation Lab where color, materials and finishes are selected for production by a variety of manufacturing processes.

Thalmic Myo: One-of-a-Kind Tooling Solution Validates Volume Manufacturing

Model Solution created a one-of-a-kind manufacturing solution for a start-up company trying to validate the mass production potential of its wearable device design. More than 20 companies tried to verify the device’s final product design for mass production, with no success. Model Solution went beyond the development support stage, and drawing upon its advanced concept of quick-turn tooling, used a combination of semi-automatic and manual tooling to produce the production run.
