Red River Precision works on existing or never before built prototypes year round. Some designs are variations on an existing design or are from new customers. Regardless of the prototype Red River Precision aims for quality in all our projects. We want our work to be the solution for any of our customers’ prototype design challenge.
When the design is set, the order may be anywhere from 1-10 in quantity. Many times one prototype is all a customer needs to ensure it is correct before full production, other times they may send it to other districts as well for a company-wide review. Red River accommodates any amount necessary for analysis.
Typically prototyping is usually a quick resolution but there are other circumstances where customers may need more of our expertise and assistance with a prototype. When one of our customers’ needs a bit more assistance, we are happy to step up and consult all their options with them.
We review the design, any cost-saving procedures that may work for their budget, like special tooling to reduce labor costs or substitutions in assembly methods other than welding and sanding. We can also advice on how we can incorporate extra LEAN manufacturing options if they are an environmentally conscience company. We enjoy working with all our customers to guarantee their satisfaction and to work with their needs and budget.
Stainless steel is corrosion resistant steel that resists rust and remains intact against aggressive chemicals, liquids and gases that generally cause other materials to fray, disintegrate and fall apart completely. Most of these classified steels display a powerful strength against extreme environments and are able to manage escalated and extremely low temperature levels making it suitable for a wide array of uses. All stainless steels materials carry iron as the main element and include a chromium range percentage, which varies from 10% to 29%. The chromium used ensures the weathering resilient traits for the stainless steel. This composition differs from chromium-nickel stainless steel.
Stainless steel has a multitude of uses from cookware to US naval ships making it a very versatile metal found in virtually every industry. It is exceedingly durable and easy to work with rendering it a great solution for commercial and residential solutions. One of the most sought-after traits of stainless steel is the corrosion resistant property.
Stainless steel is also used to make heat exchanger tubes, which are used in different industries including chemical, nuclear and natural gas processing. They are designed for heat transfer processes and mostly applied in heating, cooling, condensation and evaporation of liquids, gases and steam. Heat exchanger tubes are always a cold finished product and they are known to be extremely resistant to aggressive mediums such as acid.
Another important industry where stainless steel is used is the Oil and Gas Industry, which understands the benefits to using duplex stainless steel pipes. These duplex stainless steel pipes are resistant to an extensive variety of corrosive mediums found in both offshore and onshore locations. Another advantage of using stainless steel is the elevated strength it has that holds up under high pressures confronted at great depths. They are also the first choice for the constructions of oil rigs (mainly due to its strength and corrosion resistant properties), which are always under relentless weather conditions.
After considering all the applications stainless steel is used in and the qualities it possessed it may be the right fit for your manufacturing needs. Keep these facts stored away for you next project.
