Lean Manufacturers Are Now Saving Time and Money By Purchasing Their Clamp Risers Through Rentapen Inc.
Rentapen’s design team has been designing machines for 35 years. They realized they were designing the same clamp risers over and over again. So Rentapen developed what is now called Rentapen’s RAPid Tooling Components™, a line of tooling components.
These standardized yet versatile components save manufacturers time and money.
The mounting holes in the clamp risers are able to fit a wide variety of brands and sizes of clamps including:Carr Lane, REID, De-Sta-Co, TE-CO, All American, and Jergens. A catalog of choices can be found on Rentapen’s website.
If a designer created a clamp riser from scratch, like Rentapen and all other machine tooling design companies used to do, they would have to go through a timely and expensive process that includes: designing the part; detailing; checking; ordering material; writing the CNC code; creating the part and finally inspecting the part.
The whole process takes about 77 minutes. Manufacturers will soon be able to download the 3D model from Rentapen’s website, save the model to their library, put the riser into their design, and order the block. This approximately takes 4 minutes. Rentapen’s RAPid Riser™ is saving the manufacturers as much as 73 minutes in design and build time.
Rapid Tooling Components™ reduce the design cost of the fixture by eliminating the need to design, detail and check similar parts over and over again. Three dimensional computer models are provided by Rentapen that customers can use to incorporate into their designs.
Clamp Risers come in .5 inch increments and in aluminum to reduce weight in the fixture.
“Rentapen is theUSleader in machine design and tooling components. We earn our customer’s enthusiasm because we enjoy the opportunity to provide efficiency by design, expertise, and convenient service,” said Susan Straley, Queen of Lean Machine Design and President of Rentapen Inc.
Manufacturing engineers have known that purchased components save time and money. Manufactures have been buying their clamps that hold their product parts in position while they are being welded or assembled. Now they can buy their risers that sit under those clamps from Rentapen and reduce their costs.
