Process: Machining, Prototyping

Overview

PrototypingPrototyping is a process done by manufacturers that do one-offs to engineering businesses.

Prototypes are often complicated and needs suppliers which are willing to work with small projects where feedback is important, for example to make changes to a design.

Depending on its size and design, prototyping can be done by many workshops. Some prototyping projects are small and simple while others are large, complicated and valuable.

Machining, Prototyping projects for quote

Machining-Machining, Prototyping

Suppliers that are able to produce prototypes of the four attached parts are sought. Spending an impressive £300,000 a year in the subcontract machining sector, this company specialises in the manufacture of industrial equipment and has regular requirements within this field. The project itself encompasses a number of different materials and machining processes, including milling, turning and thread cutting. Alongside the prototypes, quotes are sought on the production runs that are scheduled to follow, meaning that the successful supplier wins not only the job in question, but also a new long-term customer.

This couplings manufacturer - who outsources £120,000 worth of machining work each year - seeks the assistance of a supplier who is able to produce the attached pin dowel from hardened 303 Stainless Steel. There are elements of turning, chamfering and grinding involved in this project.

Machining-Machining, Prototyping

This company operates within the industrial machinery sector, spending upwards of 300,000 on subcontract machining services every year. They are currently trying to identify a new supplier who is able to assist them with the manufacture of prototype hanger jackets - parts which are to be manufactured from aluminium alloy. In addition to the prototypes, the client also seeks quotes on the production runs that are due to follow.

Machining-Machining, Prototyping

Machined prototype parts are currently sought on behalf of a company with a £25,000 annual spend on this type of work. They are looking to partner with a supplier who has the immediate capacity available to produce 2-5 off aluminium triangles as per the attached drawing, to be delivered prior to the 5th June. Owing to the fast turnaround required, interested parties are asked to make contact with the client at their earliest convenience if they feel they can assist. As well as the prototypes, the chosen supplier will also be asked to lend their services to the production runs that are due to follow.
