RE Thompson uses the very latest CAD/CAM software to turn your engineering designs into precision machined components very quickly, subject to the machining feasibility but this can often be addressed through our ‘Design for Manufacture’ service.
We cater for both stereolithography and rapid machining of prototype parts for customers involved with product prototyping and development. Components can be based either on existing parts, rough sketches/2D files or solid models and our design staff are always happy to help with all your requirements.
Fastrack Service (1/2 normal time)
This manufacturing service is designed for urgent products requiring a faster than usual turnaround. Fastrack has a lead time of usually half that of our normal lead times
Rapid Product Service (1/4 normal time)
This manufacturing service is available for very urgent deadline components, and has a lead time of half that of our Fastrack service and a quarter that of our normal lead times
An additional premium is charged on both the Fastrack CNC machining service and the Rapid Product services to cover overtime and/or shift costs. These services are subject to a guarantee and should we ever fail to meet the agreed delivery date, the premium is non invoicable.
And both services can encompass finishing, painting assembly and test if required with components ready for customer integration straight from the RET delivery container
For all services, lead times will vary depending on the size and nature of the product/project. Deliveries are confirmed and agreed at time of order. In many cases we are able to accommodate our customers’ urgent delivery requirements with our standard service
