Next week, RapidMade celebrates its first full year in our Tigard facility! It's hard to believe it's been a year already. The plant has undergone many improvements since we first moved in. Our team has reorganized the shop's lay out to improve work flow and ensure our engineers, industrial designers, 3D printers, HAAS CNC and thermoformer have ample room to produce lots of parts, prototypes, tools and forms.
Every holiday season, purchasing agents and design engineers everywhere feel pressure to complete capital projects before they can celebrate the New Year. Who wants to forfeit hard-earned budget allocations because time constraints prevent delivery before the 2018 count down? Make your holidays happy instead.
Thanks to Additive Manufacturing (3D printing), year-end projects can be completed in days, not months. Services include:
- Rapid Prototyping
- 3D Scanning
- Production Parts
- Thermoformed Products
- Reverse Engineering
- Industrial Patterns
- Printed and Machined Tooling
- Custom Displays, Exhibits and Promotions
- Engineering Design
Additive Manufacturing benefits:
- Short lead times
- No tooling costs
- High customization
- Small-batch production
- Eliminated design limitations
- Pre-built assemblies
- Reduced structural weight
RapidMade will be celebrating its 6th anniversary in its new Tigard location! Having outgrown our current SW Kelly space, we are moving August 1 into a 3500+ square foot production facility conveniently located just off I5.
Our improved floor plan expands our manufacturing capabilities to include more robust finishing, inspection, assembly and production capacity. We've also purchased an HP Jet Fusion 3D printer and a HAAS CNC Mill. The Jet Fusion is considered a technological breakthrough as it is the first
“commercial 3D printing system that delivers superior quality physical parts up to 10 times faster and at half the cost of current 3D print systems.”
Until now, additive manufacturing's speed and accuracy, coupled with higher material prices and limited material options, have made it harder to produce end-use production parts at a competitive cost, which in turn, has slowed, its acceptance rate.
These new production-ready machines will compliment our existing additive and traditional manufacturing, thermoforming, 3D scanning, product design, rapid prototyping and engineering services.
Our new address is 15883 SW 72nd Avenue, Portland, OR 97224.
Thermoforming is a fast, cost-effective manufacturing technology that allows customers to prototype and manufacture production parts. RapidMade's ability to design and 3D print tooling in house reduces lead times and unit costs.
Watching the thermoformer in action is an added perk. See for yourselves. Ask us how thermoforming can transform your packaging, storage, retail display, automotive, aerospace, medical device and signage needs.
