Why is your part design important to us?

Our service prides itself on the fast turnaround of technical aluminium prototype tooling and plastic injection moulded components. RP are unique in this sector as we have a without limits approach when it comes to offering solutions to our customers.

Our ‘without limits’ philosophy means we’ll offer a solution to meet your needs no matter how complex the component design or process. RP manufacture what you’ve designed, no changes just a simple solution.

Why is your design important to us?

  • You’ve designed a product to specifically fit and function in a certain way – if we ask you to change the design then your part won’t function as intended.
  • Rapid manufacturers offer a design for manufacturability report –they tell you what design changes are needed so that the part conforms with their manufacturing processes. These design changes add extra hidden weeks to the prototyping cycle and with the fast manufacturing process comes downfalls – part design and quality are often jeopardised.
  • With RP’s manufacturing process parts are manufactured to your original design – no design changes are needed, and part quality is of a much higher standard.

Why can RP mould the ‘un-mouldable’?

Having a dedicated team with a combined experience of 500 years in toolmaking & 200 years of injection moulding we have a solution for your project.

This invaluable experience sets us apart from our competitors who will often ask you to simplify the part design to ensure it fits in with their manufacturing processes. RP focus on what the customer wants and ensure the finished components are of the highest possible quality.

Whether your parts has thin wall sections or complicated non perpendicular features we won’t ask you to change your design. Our state of the art equipment alongside our extensive experience enables us to ensure your complex features are produced exactly as you model them.

If you are fed up with making design changes, then why not try the RP way.
