NORCAT has partnered with the Fortin Discovery Lab, a state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing facility featuring the latest equipment, technology, and advisory services to help start-ups and large companies design, prototype and test new products.

Fortin Discovery Lab

Design, prototype, and test your products in the Fortin Discovery Lab. Speed to market is critical.

Speed to market is imperative and because of this competition to get products to market more quickly, many companies use rapid prototyping techniques to build parts for testing and analysis.

As innovation-driven companies know all-to-well, customers and investors often “want to see something” to give them a better understanding of the product and how it will address the complex global market opportunity for which it is designed.

Our “one-stop shop” product design, prototyping, and testing group can assist in the following ways:

  • Product technical design, engineering, and development
  • Custom mechanical, electrical, and control system fabrication and assembly
  • Product testing services for harsh and extreme weather environments, EMC certification and RF testing
  • 3D design/printing and CNC machining and mold creation
  • Injection molding

In addition, the NORCAT Underground Technology Testing Centre offers resources and equipment to support our clients to test their products in an operating mine environment.
