Equipped to Meet the High-Volume 3D Printing Needs of Clients Nationwide
Whether you’re a smaller shop or one of our nation’s leading manufacturers, we have the production capacity to meet your high-volume Additive Manufacturing (AM) needs. Rapid PSI is AS9100 and ITAR certified with the ability to build on demand with production grade plastic material. Our 18,000 square-foot production facility with over 20 production systems in Wichita, KS can turn your 3D CAD renderings into full-scale physical products in the shortest turnaround time possible with the highest quality control measures.
Additive Manufacturing is the process of using production 3D Printers to achieve end use production parts with no tooling. The AM side of Rapid PSI’s business is much different than the prototype side. AM production parts are controlled more than the basic prototype. This means there are controls, traceability, and validation in place to ensure a repeatable product goes out the door.
Controls are the processes around AM. These are all the procedures in place to instruct Rapid PSI in the manufacturing process, for example – how to orientate parts, how many tensile bars in each build, inspection procedures, and the proper way to operate a printer. Most controls are set forth in Process Control Documents (PCD) or a Manufacturing Specification. There are three types of specifications Rapid PSI builds to:
- Build to Your In-House Process Spec: Rapid PSI conforms to your spec and qualifies machines accordingly.
- Third Party Specification: You are a Tier 1 supplier and we build to the OEM spec.
- Rapid PSI’s Internal Specification: If you do not have a process spec, we build to ours to insure controls are in place for the production runs. This is helpful to use if you do not have your own internal spec, but want to build production parts with confidence.
All product that goes out the door under the Additive Manufacturing process can be tracked back to the raw material lot, files used, revision, operator, build parameters, dates of production, and particular 3D Printer used.
Part and part properties are continually validated throughout the AM process. This includes burn testing the material before production for FST rated materials, validating model data, confirming purchase order pricing and quantities, First Article Inspection Reports, and continual process inspection.
Additive Manufacturing through Rapid PSI can help take your company to the next level. The printing process allows you to combine assemblies that can be built as one unit, reduce the amount of paperwork, and allow for quick revisions without new tooling.
