What are the 4 main factors that  impact prototype prices 

---A thought from Apple Watch


In this March,Apple company held a news conference and announced the price and functions of the long waited Apple Watch,surprisingly included China mainland as one of its IPO markets.One out the three types apple watch--18K gold body edition was bid US$ 10000,which shocked all of us,how can a watch be so expensive,wont they care the selling ?

Any product’s price are calculated base on several factors like cost ,product positioning and market demand of it.It is clear that Apple is qutie confident on their product that they dare to bid such a high price.

The production cost of Apple Watch is not low,stastics show that the OEM factory production line got less than 30% of qualified products.This indicates a really high production cost.Yet many costs are invisible ,for instance,even a waist of the watch equals several thousnd us$,how this happen?It may inclueded great profit and potential risk space.

Prototyping factory we are ,EbyTon confronted same question at times --price was too high by clinets.In fact,we have to consider many factors for prototypes ,the cost and product positioning is the main factors;moreover,rapid prototyping is different from other industries,higher risk and many uncontrolable points.
Sum up our quoting experience,here are the four factors that will impact prototype price,
1.The material ,generally metals are more expensive than plastics,because the machinig is more difficult and takes longer time;
2.The size and structure .It decides the machining time and difficulties;
3.The tolerance client requested.More precise,more careful work required,this related to the equipment,machining tools,as well as the post handling technique,risk and waste rate become more higher.
4.The processing.If a prototype requires a series different types process,like electronic EDM,laser etching,painitng,silk screen printing ar demanded one prototype,the price will be added as for the complex processing.

EbyTon prototype promise to all clients to quote latest within 24 hours after receipt of files and requirements details.And if you have problems on our quote,just tell us,our sales and enginering team will explain the points we take into consideratino when quoting for your project clearly ,so you can judge if we are quoting you reosonably or not.
