Free web app helps gain a customer and boost sales for Rentapen Inc., a machine design company that is dedicated to reducing costs in weld fixtures for manufacturers.
Rentapen Inc., the weld fixture specialists, introduced their free web app in March featuring 3D Models of their line of RAPid Tooling Components™.
A manufacturer located in East Grand Forks, Minnesota who wishes to remain anonymous, had recently been utilizing Rentapen’s web app, and downloading 3D Models of Rentapen’s line of RAPid Tooling Components™ which includes, RAPid Risers™, RAPid Blocks™, RAPid Plates™ and RAPid Shims™. The customer couldn’t find a riser that fit with their particular De-Sta-Co clamp. So Rentapen’s design team created one for that customer. The customer was very pleased with Rentapen’s fast service and user friendly web app. The customer continues to use the web app today to download the tooling components they need for their fixture designs.
A single, simple clamp riser purchased instead of designed, detailed, and manufactured can save about 73 minutes in design and build time, which translates into money saved for manufacturers.
“I have seen a weld fixture that has contained close to one hundred RAPid Tooling Components™ on it. If we just carry that 73 saved minutes forward, there is a lot of time and money saved on that one weld fixture,” said Susan Straley, President of Rentapen.
Machine Design Engineers and CAD Drafters from the U.S. are able to go on to Rentapen’s website and perform six quick and fun steps to make a better weld fixture that will save them time and their company money. Instructions to Order 3D Models
