PROJECT BACKGROUND
The client is a German customized company specialized in miniature instrument. Their customers are mainly instrument and apparatus companies from 20 countries all over the world. The client contacted RPWORLD, asking us to make 30 sets of housing for their newly-designed small instrument, and aluminum alloy was chosen as manufacturing material for their products.
CHALLENGES
•The client hope the anodizing red color is corrosion resistant, stable and looking great.
•They expect to receive the final parts soon. As their downstream customers have a tight deadline for the products to market, which directly leave us a shorter production period.
RPWORLD SOLUTIONS

Skilled engineers of RPWORLD thoroughly analyzed the project based on the application, requirements and function of the parts. And they came up with the following solutions:

★ As raw material, the aluminum alloy was chosen to be manufactured, which is a commonly available material for CNC Manufacturing. The high-precision 3-axis, 4-axis and 5-axis machines enhance the production capability, keep the part within the tight tolerance and save 20% production time.

★ In addition, the aluminum alloy material is not too expensive and looks great after anodizing. As for anodizing is ideal for improving corrosion resistance, durability and hard scratch-resistant surface on aluminum parts. We use the red color to anodize the parts as surface treatment, as the client required.

CUSTOMER BENEFITS

√ The expenses of the client’s following other parts were reduced greatly, because the same color system was used according to client’s requirements. Eventually, the customer got their finished parts 20% earlier, while save 30% cost.

√ As a high-mix, low-volume manufacturing service provider, it is possible for RPWORLD to realize volume mechanical manufacturing in prototyping stage. Once the machine is programmed, it can run any times. Choosing RPWORLD, the client will benefit from a one-stop service ranging from free DFMA, various manufacturing processes to after-treatment service, and bringing new products to market with optimal timing and cost efficiencies.

TESTIMONIALS


It is the first time that I cooperate with RPWORLD, and I believe it is a good and healthy beginning of long-term cooperation as well. I got two words for RPWORLD: fast and good: You always response to my changing requirement fast, you deliver the part fast than my expectation; And the quality is good. RPWORLD is really my lucky choice!
