If tomorrow, you unexpectedly have need for a short-run production of 150 units for a different client, you can also do it here -- on your own equipment.
Frankfurt, Germany (PRWEB) December 5, 2007
The American market for rapid prototyping, rapid manufacturing and rapid tooling is booming and now European companies can easily partake in a share of the phenomenal growth.
Tangible Express, the global pioneer in fractional ownership of manufacturing assets, has opened its unique Fractional Ownership program to European-based companies, permitting them to acquire shares in Tangible Express's state-of-the-art fleet of 14 SLS and SLA units.
Fractional owners of rapid-manufacturing equipment, much like fractional owners of executive jets, receive all the benefits of ownership at only a fraction of the cost and with none of the hassles.
Based in Springville, Utah, Tangible Express assumes responsibility for 100% of equipment maintenance, 24/7 backup electrical power regulation, on-site employee training and overall equipment expertise. Fractional owners receive guaranteed access to their SLS or SLA units and the ability to "swap" time on units/platforms owned by other fractional shareholders.
"Today you want to design and test a prototype for an American client and you can do it right here on your own equipment and have it in your client's hands tomorrow," says C. Alex Linde, president and COO. "If tomorrow, you unexpectedly have need for a short-run production of 150 units for a different client, you can also do it here -- on your own equipment."
In business, time is money. Allowing European companies to control rapid-manufacturing assets based in the United States accelerates the entire process from conception, to design, to prototype to finished parts.
"American customers have expressed a strong interest in combining the innovation and quality of European tool and mold makers with the proximity of U.S.-based production assets," says David McInnis, founder and chairman of Tangible Express.
European designers, engineers and manufacturers interested in learning more about how they can profit from U.S.-based manufacturing assets are encouraged to contact Bert Kenyon, vice president of sales, at 1-714-322-9804 or email.
