Rentapen Inc., Weld Fixture Specialists, lands large tooling
component order from machine builder and manufacturer in Tennessee.
In the beginning of January 2013, a machine tooling company
contacted Rentapen with a request for quote on a large order for weld tooling
components to be to be completed within twenty 20 working days. Rentapen won the order and its team quickly
started the production process in order to complete the order on time.
The customer, located in Tennessee, has placed multiple
large orders with Rentapen in the past and continues to be a repeat customer.
The customer is in the Wood Household Furniture Industry and continues to be
successful in the industry with the help from Rentapen.
The anonymous company put in an order for both custom and
standard RAPid Tooling Components ™.
Rentapen’s weld tooling components are
made up of:
Guiding Plates; Clamp Spacers; Clamp Risers;
These components work together in a weld or assembly fixture to
precisely hold product parts in place while they is being manually or
robotically assembled or welded.
“We are very pleased that this customer, who came to us with
their first order in 2012, has returned to us in 2013,” said Susan Straley,
President and Owner of Rentapen. “We commonly
win repeat orders. Once a customer sees
the quality and time-savings of our precision machine tool products, they are
usually return for more.”
Straley added that what is special about the customer from
Tennessee is their order is exceptionally large.

design team realized they were designing the same clamp risers, blocks and
plates over and over again. To help their customers reduce costs in the machine
tool design and build process, Rentapen developed their
standardized yet versatile line of weld fixture tooling components.
Manufacturers can download the 3D models from Rentapen’s
website, save the model to their purchased parts CAD library, and then place
the RAPid Tooling Components into their weld or assembly fixture designs. This
approximately takes 4 minute to complete in full.
“Quality and on-time delivery is of utmost importance at
Rentapen,” said Straley, “When a customer such as the one in Tennessee is
satisfied with their order there is a greater chance they will reorder in the
