Welcome to the Prototype Development Lab

We work with clients that range from start-up companies needing to develop their first product to large companies wanting an efficient means of obtaining needed mechanical or electromechanical devices. We also work with researchers at OSU or at other nearby universities or laboratories. 

The competitive advantage of working with PDL:

Staffing:

Professional firms are limited by the staff they employ. The Prototype Development Lab has all of OSU to draw upon for project-specific expertise.

Experience, Creativity, and Skills:

Supervising professors and staff provide the technical experience. Students provide boundless creativity, enthusiasm, and cutting-edge skills.

Risk tolerance:

The structure of the Prototype Development Lab enables it to pursue higher risk / higher reward projects than a typical professional firm could.

Facilities:

Professional firms are limited in the equipment they can access. The Prototype Development Lab has all of OSU to draw upon for economical and project-specific access to the latest technical equipment.
