RPA is very proud of the fact that we have worked with some of the best companies and Universities providing custom metal prototyping services in order to develop high quality products for the marketplace or for experimentation in their laboratories.
This has given RPA unique opportunities to experiment with the different processes that are available to us from bead blasting to tumble, from high energy tumble (harperizing) to polishing, from buffing by hand to automated tumble buffing (polishing) RPA can blend these different metal prototyping processes to reach the desired end result. Our customized solutions also allow RPA to work with exotic materials that would otherwise be cost prohibitive in standard production work.
For instance, RPA has work with tantalum; masking surfaces and bead blasting other surfaces. The knowledge gained by working with these prototypes has allowed for a higher confidence in the ability to work with the more common materials. Such as stainless steel, titanium, steel, aluminum, brass, copper, and zinc. RPA has worked with each of the various groups of each of these metals as well as many of the plastics such as; Ultem, acrylics.
Whether your metal prototyping job consists of 1 piece, 5 pieces, or a qualifying run, let RPA help you to reach your ultimate goal and achieve the best finish possible for your unique application.
