Titletown Manufacturing prototyping metal and plastic parts
Written by Chris Fuss

Titletown Manufacturing works with customers to create perfect parts

Machinability is a key element to prototyping metal and plastic parts

The process of prototyping metal and plastic parts requires patience and persistence as Titletown Manufacturing teams collaborate with customers to solve design challenges. We maximize the value of our customers’ investment through our commitment to refining these designs until they are as close to perfect as possible.

Prototyping metal and plastic parts can begin anywhere in the manufacturing process. This includes starting from scratch with only a rough drawing in hand, upgrading an existing part, or even reverse-engineering parts that no longer are available.

It is not uncommon in the process of prototyping metal and plastic parts to require several versions before we’re able to attain a level of perfection within target tolerance levels. Equipment such as our CNC horizontal milling machine is extremely helpful in our ability to produce parts within .0001 tolerances.

Prototyping metal and plastic parts takes trial and error

Titletown Manufacturing is a regional leader in the production of parts for customers in a variety of industries. We understand the importance that comes with the machinability of designs. It is of little benefit to create a part that is not cost effective to replicate, either by us or the customer.

The only way to truly gauge the cost effectiveness of a design is to run it through the entire process to completion. That’s why machinability is a major focus of our efforts in prototyping metal and plastic parts.

Each new part needs to be as nearly perfect as possible in terms of being functional as well as repeatable. It is worth the effort to shave that final couple thousandths of an inch off the prototype to reach that point. This pursuit of excellence saves money in the long run as our customers look to maximize the value of their investment in prototyping metal and plastic parts.

Assembly of machine parts is more efficient when done in-house

Titletown Manufacturing minimizes shipping, time and costs

Limiting the number of metal fabrication shops and parts manufacturers that need to touch a project is a key contributor to delivering a finished order that is on time and within budget. Titletown Manufacturing, LLC, performs virtually every step in the assembly of machine parts process in its Green Bay, Wisconsin, facility.

Titletown Manufacturing has the capability of using 3D programming for metal parts, as well as making frames, painting, machining, assembly of machine parts, and testing in-house. Our team is able to set a schedule based on the timing for specific parts because we know the order in which the project needs to come together.

One of the advantages of completing the full assembly of machine parts in-house is the ability to know exactly where the various jobs associated with the project are at. As a project progresses through our facility, it is not the first time our team is reviewing the drawings or going through a learning curve.

Assembly of machine parts keeps quality control in our hands

Packaging up parts or partial projects for shipment to subcontractors is just a portion of the financial downside faced by fabrication shops that are unable to perform full assembly of machine parts in-house. Quality control can become an issue when bringing additional shops in on a project, with the delays and extra costs that inevitably crop up.

We feel more comfortable when our workforce can keep tabs on as many aspects of a project as possible. Our customers tell us they feel the same way. They can take comfort in having a single point of contact rather than having to track which shop is handling specific tasks.

If a project isn’t coming together the way the engineer had planned, our experts are able to make appropriate adjustments without undue delay. This is especially useful on prototype machines in which there is no previous history from which to draw. The end result is a successful assembly of machine parts that results in a high-quality project.
