Rapid Tooling's commitment to Dedicated Tooling can mean fewer problems and more products for the customer.

Rapid Tooling, Inc., “The Sustaining Engineering Outsource Provider,” which recently completed its ISO 9001 recertification, has designed thousands of screen-print tools for all types of substrates over the last 20 years and is still constantly striving to make product development more efficient and cost effective.

Joseph Darling, Managing Director at Rapid Tooling, believes the screen print process benefits directly from Dedicated Tooling. “Post-alignment positioning, squeegee pressure, snap off and angle of attack all fluctuate if the board flexes during the print cycle. Dedicated Tooling can eliminate board flex variation.”  Darling continues, “Dedicated Tooling also eliminates setup variation associated with operator-adjustable pins and ‘universal work-nests,’ as well as vacuum bleed to the stencil side of the board. You will never have better support than a dedicated tool will provide, and it takes less than one minute for product changeover.”
