"With a focus on new product development, Partsimony has added horsepower in more areas than one. Partsimony opened up the portal to a new, vetted vendor base while providing manufacturing and materials expertise to hone in our designs. Their platform was easy to navigate and conduct communication with supply chain partners. They are valuable in all areas from concept validation to production."
— HENRY KAO, Director of Product Management
STANLEY Security was seeking a robust updated design flexible enough to adhere to strict tolerances due to cascading design restrictions, while also achieving a cost reduction target of $22.96 per component set.
Based on design intent of the component, a manufacturer within Partsimony’s network offered a $4.34 per component set solution, which achieved component performance and allowed for a reassessment of previously established tolerances for improved manufacturability.
81% Cost reduction savings ($22.96/component set cost to $4.34/ component set).
Industry Segment: Aerospace
"It can be difficult to find machine shops that are willing to work on 3D printed parts, and in this case, we were especially struggling to find a partner who could machine a part as large as our rocket chamber and who is also ITAR compliant. Thanks to Partsimony and their team’s proactive character, we were able to quickly find the perfect fit for our manufacturing needs. We were introduced to a machine shop that was eager to take on unique parts like our 3D printed rocket chamber and has the capabilities and experience to execute successfully. Thanks to Partsimony, we saved a lot of time and money."
— ANDRE IVANKOVIC, Mechanical Engineer
Launcher had spent months trying to identify the right manufacturing partner for a large rocket combustion chamber. Certification requirements needed to adhere to strict military ITAR and aviation AS9100 certifications. In addition, the manufacturer needed to be capable of working within tight engineering tolerances, support initial low volume orders for development (i.e. quantity of 1 piece), and scale to production (i.e. quantity of 100+ pieces). Most manufacturers who fit these specifications were unwilling to work at low volumes/provided “no quote” responses.
A manufacturer within Partsimony’s network was identified that was able to meet the strict military (ITAR), aviation (AS9100), and quality (ISO) certification requirements. The manufacturer also possessed the ability to scale from small development volume orders to larger production volumes. In addition, the manufacturer provided key additional insights on engineering drawings given their aviation expertise which improved overall specifications for manufacturability.
Saved Launcher months in searching for potential manufacturing partners.
Identified manufacturing partner which adhered to strict military (ITAR) and aviation (AS9100) certifications that is able to scale from initial development to production.
Gained drawing improvements from key industry expertise based on manufacturer feedback.
