Program 1

MANUFACTURING/PRODUCTION - THE INNOVATION HUB HELPS INVENTORS, ENTREPRENEURS, AND MANUFACTURERS TO DESIGN, PROTOTYPE, BUILD, TEST, AND DELIVER NEW PRODUCTS. WE HAVE WORKED WITH A VARIETY OF COMPANIES AND INVENTORS TO DELIVER SUCCESSFUL PROTOTYPES AND PROJECTS, AND WE WORK CLOSELY WITH SOME OF ARKANSAS'S BEST DESIGNERS AND ENGINEERS TO MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR CLIENTS. MANUFACTURING USES SMART TOOLS LIKE 3D PRINTERS, CNC MILLS, INJECTION MOLDERS, AND LASER CUTTERS TO AUTOMATE AND MULTIPLY THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS. MASS MANUFACTURING IS DESIGNED TO CREATE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF A PRODUCT. BUT, WHAT IF YOU ONLY NEED A HUNDRED OR SO ITEMS TO LAUNCH YOUR BUSINESS? THAT'S MICROMANUFACTURING - A PROCESS WHICH USES MANY OF THE SAME AUTOMATED TOOLS AS A BIG INDUSTRY ON A SMALLER SCALE. MUCH OF THE WORK TRADITIONALLY HANDLED BY MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT CAN NOW BE PERFORMED BY 3D PRINTERS. THE MICROMANUFACTURING PROCESS IS MORE EFFICIENT, USING FEWER RESOURCES AND ALLOWING YOU TO DECIDE JUST HOW MUCH PRODUCT YOU NEED AND WHEN YOU NEED IT. IT'S A COMBINATION OF OLD WORLD CRAFTSMANSHIP AND 21ST CENTURY TECHNOLOGIES. OUR PRODUCTION TEAM OFFERS 2D & 3D DESIGN SERVICES, AND FABRICATION SERVICES USING STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY.
