The Heroic Strength of Prototype Product Destruction
Thomas Edison once said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that don’t work.” This optimism may be relatable for many manufacturers and inventors. But optimism is not a strategy for safeguarding your company’s efforts to create the next latest and greatest product on the market! This is why a partnership with a professional prototype product destruction service is essential.
Raise Your Shields with Product Destruction
The use of prototypes isn’t a new way to work out the kinks in new inventions and products. They are often utilized to identify the failures of an attempted idea before the final product is released for public scrutiny or use. However, if just one of those 10,000 “failures” were to fall into the wrong hands, it could be devastating.
In recent years, there has been an exponential climb in efforts made to undermine, steal, and replicate valuable ideas and inventions. Sensitive information, in the wrong hands, becomes a professional nuclear missile. This is why it’s essential that you are able to maintain full control of yours, and protect your trade secrets from becoming weaponized against you.
You must establish a secure relationship with a professional product destruction service early on. A product destruction service responsibly removes recalled, expired, mislabeled, incomplete, or defective prototypes and products from circulation.
Stand Guard Over More than Prototypes
According to a ResearchGate report, prototyping is becoming even easier and more efficient for researchers, designers, and inventors. While the process used to be an expensive venture, “The recent emerging technologies for three-dimensional printing and rapid prototyping have reduced such investments. This is helpful in better and more quickly understanding different design options, their physical features and so on.”
However, because these models must be created virtually on a computer before being created physically, the gamble of unwanted exposure has increased. Not only must creators consider the risks associated with inconsistent, or nonexistent, product destruction, but they must also realize the information captured on a computer’s hard drive isn’t quickly nor easily destroyed by a simple click of a button, either.
When computers are retired, or disposed of, often traces of – or full access to – these files typically still exist. For this reason, when you partner with a professional product destruction company, you should also be confident that they can also offer you the peace of mind that comes with complete hard drive and document destruction, as well.
