Process: Machining, Prototyping

Overview

Prototyping is a process done by manufacturers that do one-offs to engineering businesses.
Prototypes are often complicated and need 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

The attached rotor hub will be used as part of a submarine propeller and the client is looking for a machining supplier that can produce the initial prototype for testing purposes. The hub itself is to be manufactured from stainless steel, with delivery required by the end of the month. Once the project moves into the production phase, larger quantities of this item will be needed. The buyer outsources machining work to the tune of £100,000 annually and therefore, additional requirements may be extended to the successful supplier once a relationship has been established.

A prototype breaker plate is required for manufacture, in order to undergo testing for use within consumer products. The company behind this enquiry is looking to work with a supplier that can offer delivery in early December, meaning that may be ideal for those with immediate capacity. Once the project reaches the production phase, the successful vendor may also be given the opportunity to quote for larger call-offs.

A prototype of the attached cone is to be machined from solid aluminium, destined for end use within scientific equipment. The client is a company that spends a sizeable £75,000 a year on outsourced machining processes. They request that suppliers who can facilitate the manufacture of this part - in accordance with their specifications - make contact with them directly in order to be considered for the opportunity. There is also scope for this to become ongoing work for the chosen vendor once the project reaches the production phase.

Suppliers with machining capacity are asked to quote for the manufacture of two different parts, to be used as prototypes. An order will be placed for 5 off of each item at this stage, which are destined for end use within fire safety equipment. Those that are able to assist are asked to quote their best price and lead time in order to be considered for the work.

Machining suppliers with immediate capacity are asked to provide a quotation for the attached plastic spacer. The client - a manufacturer of products for the automotive industry - is looking for the initial prototype, with a possibility of repeat orders to follow. Therefore, interested parties are asked to make contact with the buyer at their earliest convenience if they feel they can assist. With a £15,000 annual spend in the subcontract machining market, the client may also choose to extend additional projects to the supplier that they select.

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.

Machining-Machining, Prototyping

This engineering design company seeks the assistance of a supplier that is able to produce a prototype component from aluminium. They initially seek 1 off, with potential for much larger batches once testing is complete. The part in question will be used within the construction industry and there may also be potential for further prototyping work from the client in question.
