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

  1. Drawings count: 3

    Machining-Machining, Prototyping

    Required as part of a larger robotics project, the attached spacer is to be machined from aluminium. It will angle a gripper within an arm and must be produced as per the attached drawing. Accuracy and precision are extremely important within this project, with delivery required as soon as possible.

  2. Drawings count: 1

    Machining-Machining, Prototyping

    Initial prototype sliders are sought for immediate manufacture, to be used within vivariums. The company behind this enquiry seeks quotes for 4 off pairs, as per the drawings attached. Interested suppliers must have the capacity available to offer delivery by early July; in turn, they may be invited to assist within additional projects at a later date.

  3. Drawings count: 0

    Machining-Machining, Prototyping

    A supplier is needed to reverse engineer a large gear case casting and produce manufacturing drawings from original. The casting weighs approximately 0.5 tonnes and therefore, suppliers must have the in-house facilities to machine components of this size. It will be free-issued to the successful supplier and once the design and drawings are complete, the machining itself will be required.

  4. Drawings count: 2

    Machining-Machining, Prototyping

    With an annual spend exceeding £100,000, this manufacturer of domestic appliances would like to hear from machinists who can produce the attached aluminium and stainless steel components. Initial prototypes are required with some degree of urgency, with high-volume production runs to follow 2 - 3 months later.

  5. Drawings count: 4

    Machining-Machining, Prototyping

    Suppliers with immediate capacity are asked to provide a quotation for the two attached components, both of which are to be machined from aluminium. This enquiry is on behalf of a pump and valve designer that outsources over £40,000 worth of machining work every year. They are looking to allocate the work as soon as possible and therefore, interested parties are asked to make contact as soon as possible in order to be considered.

  6. Drawings count: 2

    Machining-Machining, Prototyping

    Prototypes of the attached item are currently required, on behalf of a company that spends an impressive £500,000 every year in the subcontract machining sphere. They require quotes for 2 off at this time, but will also look to place repeat orders moving forward. Supplier input regarding the manufacture of this assembly would be appreciated; in turn, there is plenty of scope for the chosen supplier to develop the relationship and lend their services to additional requirements.

  7. Drawings count: 2

    Machining-Machining, Prototyping

    Outsourcing machining work to the tune of £30,000 a year, this company currently requires prototypes of a chamber and a top cap. These items are to be made from aluminium and black acetal respectively, with 1 off of each to be delivered by the latest of the 12th March. This is a one-off requirement preceding injection-moulded production runs, meaning that it will be best suited to those with immediate capacity to fill.

  8. Drawings count: 4

    Machining-Machining, Prototyping

    A manufacturer of material handling equipment, who spends a massive £1million a year on outsourced machining services, is looking to collaborate with a third party for production of a set of prototype machined parts. These are new designs that will be used within larger sub-assemblies. There will be an ongoing demand for the components in question - the buyer would like to hear from vendors that are able to facilitate long-term supply, with full production due to commence in 2019.

  9. Drawings count: 2

    Machining-Machining, Prototyping

    Prototypes of the attached parts are needed for testing purposes, on behalf of a company that outsources over £25,000 worth of machining work every year. They require price breaks from 1 to 6 off across the set, for which they have an immediate order to place. This could spell ongoing work for the chosen supplier, as the buyer will look to order much larger volumes at a later stage of the project.

  10. Drawings count: 1

    Machining-Machining, Prototyping

    Outsourcing machining work to the tune of £100,000 a year, this company is a leisure specialist who is looking for a supplier to produce prototype logos on their behalf. These items are to be machined from stainless steel for use upon yachts. As well as the prototypes, the successful vendor will be given an opportunity to assist with the production runs that are scheduled to follow; therefore, this is a chance to win a new long-term customer, as well as the work in question.
