Rapid Prototyping

Rapid prototyping is our specialty. All we need is a CAD file to get started and since we stock many of the popular materials, our lead time is just a couple of days. Same day service is available.

Microwave stripline and EMI shielding are excellent candidates for rapid prototyping. Initial designs can be tested and improved within days. Production quantities of final designs can be delivered only days after approval. Shields can be "laser stitched" providing bend lines for hand forming which eliminates the need for expensive tooling. As always, our lead time for prototypes is only a few days after receipt of your order. Since no artwork is needed, laser cutting is an excellent alternative to chemical etching offering better dimensional tolerances, shorter lead times, square edges and very sharp inside radii.

Quality Assurance

The quality system at Rache Corporation is ISO 9001:2015 compliant. AS9100 D pending.
