Fixturing, Measuring & Scanning
RapidFit+ is a smart and revolutionary service offered by Materialise to provide customised jigs, fixtures and quality control solutions by exploiting the benefits of additive manufacturing.
Customised modular fixtures
RapidFit+ modular fixtures are revolutionary custom designed and manufactured clamping systems that have a unique fit to each part, and enables to measure automotive and aerospace components in the most accurate and secure way. Customised locators are built using additive manufacturing technologies and then assembled to a modular beam system to create the innovative RapidFit+ fixturing solutions. These fixtures offer many benefits, including increased flexibility, a perfect fit to part surfaces, an exact simulation of fixation and reduced lead-times and costs to name just a few.
Dedicated fixture solutions
With our unrivalled experience in additive manufacturing, we are in pole position to provide smart and innovative jigs and fixtures that are directly constructed using additive manufacturing technologies. Following a thorough appraisal of your current practices, we can streamline the efficiency of your production processes through the seamless integration of our innovative jigs and fixtures. Many of our solutions have saved customers over €100 000 per year.
Scanning & Measurement
Using the latest precision instruments in our optimally conditioned measurement room, we are able to provide a comprehensive and professional quality control service. Using various measuring solutions we provide customised 3D measurement reports to support your quality control process. This is a service we provide both in conjunction with RapidFit+ fixture solutions and as an independent service. In addition to measurement reports we are also able to digitise physical components, enabling the digital storage, reproduction or analysis (CFD/FEA) of the part.
