About The Project


The client VIPP is a famous industry design company since 1939 in Denmark. Their product development engineer Mikkel contacted us for a new project about lounge chair, they would like to start with rapid prototype first, and may need low volume manufacturing in the near future. TEAM Rapid received the enquiry on 15th Sep, 2017 and offered the quotation to them in 2 hours in the same day. Rapid Prototyping Service is one of our main services, we understand time is money!



About the Parts 

Regarding to the product's application, it must have good load capacity. The chair frame needed to be strong enough, metal was preferred. Considered all these factors, we suggested the client to make each components in Aluminum 6061 in one piece with no joint and weld. Aluminum 6061 is not only strong enough but also lightweight, it is commonly available aluminum alloy that machines well and is not expensive. The client was happy with these. As these parts needed to be assembled and decorated later, milling finished was suggested.

CNC Prototyping 

Considering the low volume quantity and assembly requirement, CNC prototyping is the first choice for this project, we can get precise parts by this method. If one or some parts in loosed tolerance, it may lead to assembly and functional problem, the chair will sit unevenly, the joint areas needed to take care on it for the tolerance and fitting. 3-axis CNC milling machine is the best to make these parts which have several machining directions. Here a stainless steel jigs were held firmly on the part to prevent any unwanted viberation till it's finishing the machining on those surfaces.
