Suproto's Multi-Service Approach: Bringing Mr. Petrov's Aerospace Dream to Life


Suproto’s tailored rapid prototyping solution catapulted Mr. Petrov’s custom automotive parts manufacturing to new heights by overcoming unique challenges with speed and expertise.


Mr. Petrov, the head of R&D at a large Russian aerospace company

Current Problem

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.

Current Situation of Customer Company

Mr. Petrov’s company faced the challenge of validating a new aircraft engine design, involving intricate components and demanding high precision. The complexity of the design, combined with the need for high-quality functional prototypes within a tight timeline and budget, put immense pressure on Mr. Petrov and his team.

In-Depth Investigation for Demands

A thorough analysis of Mr. Petrov’s requirements revealed the need for a one-stop rapid prototyping solution that utilized all of Suproto’s services – CNC machining, 3D printing, sheet metal fabrication, and injection molding. This approach would optimize the design for functionality, manufacturability, and cost-effectiveness, while ensuring seamless integration of various components.

What Did We Do?

Material Selection

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.

Service Selection

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.

Prototype Assembly

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.

Unlock Success: Functionality, Speed, & Savings
