Motorcycle Fabrication with 3d Engineering
Phase 1 Getting Started
We do parts with Motorcycle-Fabrication with 3d Engineering. Once we receive your file from our 3d engineer it gets uploaded to our Secure Engineering Department, with selection of material for the type of mold being made, quantity to order, type of finish (polish etc.) , with a brief clear description, then we will analyze for accuracy to move into the next phase. Which is quoting your molds or mold. This will take between 1 & 2 days. One of our very competitive traits is that we deliver you a copy of stl, step and a pdf file for your own records etc. but we do this in a timely manner for our customers to reduce as much down time as possible. Example: if you have us design a part from scratch or we just do your drawings if we receive them on a Monday we usually have you ready by that Friday with 1 or 2 changes done in between. This is based on the amount of time etc. Our customers now love this as it saves them much time or they get to make up for lost time or mistakes.
Once you are good to go and approve us to move forward, then we develop you a two part mold. 1 half with the other half. This is delicate as we are designing for parting lines, installing shutoffs, gates with ejector pins etc. This is why we ask for a clear description of what your doing in order for us to minimize unnecessary down time. This is a back and forth process from us to you, once completed and your content with your tolerances etc, then we sign a contract and move forward to the next phase.
This is where our engineers get busy. Your mold comes alive with much intricate tooling and knowledge. This is the area of putting your mold together with the proper tolerances for materials used in the mold. Milling, finishing etc. We check for proper fitment and sealing etc.
You can choose at this time to have our engineers polish to your liking etc.
This is where you receive samples etc. Much is involved with melting hot material and compressing it into a soft tool or aluminum mold. This is normal procedure with having the hot material flowing or shot thru the gates, while upon the mold cooling the ejector pins aid in the removal of the material into a catch basin then inspected for proper tolerances and upon passing it then goes to our shipping department and samples are sent out upon finishing. When the run is complete, parts or samples are boxed and shipped shortly thereafter.
Types of Chrome we offer:
is (only) Hex Chrome or Black Chrome, both are Triple Plated Chrome
Chrome plating (commonly chromium plating), often referred as chrome, is a technique of electroplating a thin layer of chromium onto a metal or plastic object. The chromed layer can be decorative, provide corrosion resistance, ease cleaning procedures, or increase surface hardness.
The process consist of an Etching, Copper, Two separate Nickels (15% & 20 %) then the Chrome. After the process is done your material or composite or part is usually stronger or easier to up keep.
Colors can be discussed for custom applications.
We chrome just about anything!
