Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 10, 2005 -
Â Quickparts (http://www.Quickparts.com), the leading provider of custom-manufactured plastic and metal parts from prototype to production, today announced the launch of QuickTool ExpressÂ, a new rapid injection molding process that is quoted instantly on the Quickparts.com website.
QuickTool ExpressÂ allows users to get instant quotes for injection mold tooling and parts. A user can simply upload his own unique 3D CAD data, and define the part material, color, internal and external finish, and lead time. Then, with the click of the ÂCreate QuoteÂ button, a custom, binding quote for tooling and per-part pricing is calculated and presented, instantly. The user has the flexibility to perform unlimited what-if scenarios including multiple tools, materials and quantities in order to optimize their project price.
ÂWith QuickTool ExpressÂ, design engineers can now get instant online quotes for injection molded parts delivered in 10 days or less,Â said Mark Mackie, Co-founder and Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Quickparts. ÂWe continue to apply our technology into time-saving features that engineers can really use. Instant online quoting for injection molded parts is another industry first for Quickparts.Â
QuickTool ExpressÂ is the latest manufacturing process from Quickparts that leverages the companyÂs patent-pending QuickQuoteÂ® geometric analysis technology. Other instantly quoted offerings include: Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), and Cast Urethanes.
As with QuickpartsÂ other manufacturing processes, engineers can print, email, and save QuickTool ExpressÂ instant quotes online 24x7. Once an order is placed, a complete manufacturing plan, including moldflow analysis and parting line-ejection-gate review, is developed and approved. A dedicated Quickparts Project Manager works directly with the customer to ensure parts meet specifications.
While QuickTool Express is designed for simple, no-action injection molded parts, Quickparts also offers QuickTool ProÂ for design engineers having parts with more complex geometries. Users can submit QuickTool ProÂ quotes online and a Quickparts representative will have a quote back in 24 hours or less.
