On March 15, 2012 Rentapen Inc., specialists in weld fixtures, released its brand new free web service, which allows you to receive 3D CAD Models of their weld tooling components in your email.
Rentapen Inc., located in Waukesha, WI has long been helping manufacturers reduce their costs in weld fixtures through lean weld fixture design and through their line of RAPid Tooling Components™. Now, 3D Models of their components are available to all. Any fixture designer can become more efficient and create better fixtures.
The 3D Models are the new American standard for the Machine Designing Industry. Rentapen’s new 3D models changed how Machine Design Engineers and CAD Drafters design their weld fixtures for the better. The 3D Models greatly reduce machine design time and build costs.
Machine Design Engineers and CAD Drafters from the U.S. are able to go on to Rentapen’s website and perform four quick and easy steps to make a better weld fixture that will save them time and their company money.
Four Steps to a Quicker Fixture:
First, go to Rentapen’s website and click on the tab that says Order 3D Models.
Second, select the blocks, shims, clamp risers, or plates that you need and add them to your cart.
Third, click order model and fill out your company’s information. You will only have to fill out your information once on each computer that you use. Otherwise if you use the same computer every time when you order a 3D Model then the system will remember your information. Then click order model again.
Finally, you will receive your 3D CAD Models that you ordered in your email inbox. Then you can save it to your CAD library. It is that simple!

“Rentapen is already getting great feedback from people who are using the free service,” said Susan Straley, President at Rentapen Inc.
“I had no issues with the website, selecting items, and viewing my cart. The process was very simple, very quick, and appeared to work as intended,” said an Engineer that beta-tested the site.
This is cool! It’s like playing with legos,” said another testing Engineer.
Companies that use weld jig and fixture tooling on their assembly lines have been using RAPid Tooling Components™ to reduce the costs of their tooling. Now the 3D Models will be easily available to the CAD Drafters and Design Engineers who concept those jigs and weld fixtures.
Now manufacturers everywhere who buy their clamps from CarLane or De-Sta-Co will easily place a RAPid Riser™ under their clamp. Purchased components can greatly reduce the costs and time involved in tooling design and build.
The RAPid Tooling Components™ line was developed when Rentapen’s Engineers discovered they were using the same blocks, plates, clamp risers, and shims over and over.
“We greatly reduced the time it takes to design a fixture after we introduced our RAPid Tooling Components™ line,” said Straley. “Whether a fixture contains one clamp riser or dozens of these purchased components, time and costs are reduced.”
