Rapid manufactured steel suspension component

Rapid manufactured steel suspension component

In the Rapid Manufacturing and Prototyping Laboratory (RMPL), we are developing new methods for rapid prototyping and more importantly, rapid manufacturing. The term rapid manufacturing implies that we want to make functional components, not just models. The major goal of our work is to eliminate the pre-process engineering time and skill required to create a custom component. Therefore, the term rapid means fast and easy process planning, fixture planning and setup planning for making one, or a few functional parts.
