PROTOTYPE MANUFACTURING SUPPORT
Production engineering concerns the development of a product and its’ integration with the manufacturing process to ensure the most effective implementation.
Rapitypes can begin by making the prototype better, but we can also apply our design engineering team to carry out engineering analysis on the product in relation to a given manufacturing route. This work can pay big dividends in terms of the elimination of waste, the increased speed of manufacture, the best use of materials and the conservation of energy and other resources.
Rapitypes can assume responsibility for the entire project management, the discipline of planning, organizing and managing resources to ensure the successful completion of the project. Our CRM systems and quality control routines ensure that the project is delivered to the client on budget and with the right quality, but we also offer additional assistance with the tertiary sub-contract tasks.
(Not to be confused with program management, which for the most part will rest with the client).
Engineering Development Consultancy
The Rapitypes engineering team is always on hand to offer advice on specific aspects of a project to ensure a successful outcome. This might be something as simple as draft checking or verification of the specified materials, but we can also do a ground-up analysis of an entire product.
For example we recently analysed and re-engineered a piece of chromatography equipment to provide a simpler user interface and better sample throughput. Our business development staff will be happy to explain more.
