Waukesha, WI (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
In January, 2013, Susan Straley, President of Rentapen, a weld fixture tooling company in Wisconsin, sat down and reviewed the sales numbers for 2012. She observed a significant rise in sales of mounting blocks, clamp risers, and shims. The growth is a reflection of both an interest in lean manufacturing and the increased speed at which manufacturers are trying to go from product development to production.
“Our components save time in the design, build and testing of weld jigs and assembly fixtures,” said Straley. “That is what manufacturers are looking for, lean and fast.”
The year 2012 is over, but the increase and growth of Rentapen’s RAPid Tooling Components™ that are used in weld jigs and assembly fixtures is still something worth talking about.
“I knew we were busy, but with December’s numbers in, I was happy to see a growth of approximately 40 percent in the sales of RAPid Tooling Components™,” said Straley.
Rentapen’s RAPid Tooling Component collection is made up of standard and custom RAPid Blocks™, RAPid Plates™, Clamp Risers, and precision Shims. These products precisely hold a customer’s product in their weld fixtures while it is being manually or robotically assembled or welded.
Rentapen introduced a new website feature in March, 2012 that has played a large role in the increase of sales for their RAPid Tooling Components. 3D Models of their components are available for machine design engineers and CAD drafters to download and use in their 3D designs. Rentapen’s 3D model download process insures the customer’s order is as accurate as possible. This ordering system is free to use, convenient, and time saving.
