Mr. Petrov, the head of R&D at a large Russian aerospace company
Tackling the intricate task of producing top-quality functional prototypes for an innovative aircraft engine design, Mr. Petrov faced the pressing need to find a reliable partner capable of delivering exceptional results.
Mr. Petrov sought a complete rapid prototyping solution employing diverse manufacturing techniques, all while adhering to stringent time and budget constraints. Suproto’s On-Demand Manufacturing & Machining Services were instrumental in meeting these demands, providing unmatched quality and precision.
We used Inconel 718, a high-strength, corrosion-resistant nickel chromium material ideal for high-temperature applications like aerospace engines. It offers excellent tensile, fatigue, creep, and rupture strength, essential for the durability and performance of the aircraft engine.
For intricate components, we leveraged Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS), an additive manufacturing technique that uses a laser to sinter powdered metal, layer by layer, to create complex geometries. For larger, more robust parts, we used CNC machining with 5-axis milling to maintain high precision and consistency.
We implemented a Lean Manufacturing approach, minimizing waste while maximizing productivity. For instance, we used Just-In-Time (JIT) production to ensure materials were delivered exactly when needed, reducing storage costs and improving efficiency.
Suproto’s all-inclusive solution ensured the creation of functional prototypes that not only met Ivan’s precise specifications and design requirements but also exceeded his expectations. Our meticulous attention to detail and unwavering commitment to quality led to a remarkable 96% success rate, proving our capability in handling complex projects.
Through our streamlined production processes and close coordination with suppliers, we were able to achieve a 36% reduction in lead time. Our proactive project management and optimization strategies enabled us to deliver the prototypes ahead of schedule, giving Ivan’s company a competitive advantage and the ability to move forward with their plans more quickly.
Our expertise in optimizing both design and manufacturing processes allowed us to achieve a significant 28% reduction in overall project costs. By identifying areas for improvement and implementing cost-saving measures, we provided Ivan’s company with substantial savings, freeing up resources that could be allocated to other crucial aspects of their business.
“Working with Suproto was a game-changer for our aircraft engine project. Their expertise, one-stop rapid prototyping solution, and attention to detail allowed us to validate and optimize our design within a tight timeline and budget. The level of professionalism and commitment to our success was unparalleled. I can’t recommend Suproto enough!”
