Rentapen Inc., of Waukesha, WI, Continues to Expand the Number of Components and Product Parts Available for 3D-Model Download.

RAPid Tooling Components™

"So we realized if we standardized on those parts we could save our customers lots of time and costs, said George Straley Founder of Rentapen Inc.".

In January and March 2013, Rentapen Inc., added several new components to its 3D-Model download web page, http://www.WeldFixtureComponents.com.

Rentapen Inc., offers a large custom line of RAPid Tooling Components™ that can be downloaded for free to help manufactures save time and money while designing and building their weld and assembly jigs and fixtures. RAPid Tooling Components™ are a new American standard for the machine design Industry. An alternative to NAAMS, Rentapen’s components along with the 3D models have changed how Machine Design Engineers and CAD Drafters design their weld fixtures.

“In 2001 we discovered we, as weld fixture and assembly fixture designers, were designing the same parts over and over again. So we realized if we standardized on those parts we could save our customers lots of time and costs. So we created RAPid Tooling Components™,” said George Straley, Founder of Rentapen.

Rentapen Inc., has a total of 9 different types of RAPid Blocks™ that can be ordered to fit different tooling fixture needs. In the beginning, customers would buy the RAPid Block™ and then if the block needed to be altered, they would place the part in their CNC or take it to another vendor. RAPid Blocks are often altered to add a hole in it to hold a locating pin or a rest pad or to chamfer a corner. In 2011, Rentapen Inc., began to offer customized alterations to their RAPid Blocks™.

Rentapen Inc., manufactures each block as it is ordered. This allows them to keep inventory low and provide a valuable service to their customers. Rentapen Inc., will customize the RAPid Block™ per the customer’s specifications. “Need a chamfer? No Problem. Need a hole for a locating pin? No problem,” said Susan Straley, President of Rentapen.

All of Rentapen’s RAPid Tooling Components™ are made in the U.S.A. This is in line with Rentapen’s vision as the U.S. Leader in machine design and tooling components. Rentapen is dedicated to reducing costs for manufacturers. And their free 3D service greatly helps manufacturers on their lean journey.

Rentapen Inc., is the weld fixture specialist, and is home of RAPid Tooling Components. Rentapen Inc. has been providing machine tool design services to manufactures since 1976. A Certified Woman Owned Business and owns RAPid Tooling Components™. For more information Rentapen Inc., please call 262-542-8891 or visit http://www.rentapen.com.
