Sheet Metal Production
In the fabrication industry, specifically metal fabrication, you are probably in one of three phases: prototype, production, and mass production. All three are treated completely different when manufacturing. Below is an explanation of the production stage and how VIP can cater to your production needs.
Production: This stage may also be known as batch production. This is when your part or product is in its introduction and growth stages. Once prototypes have been validated for the design as far as fit, form, function, and cosmetics and a demand has been established, production is the next stage. This stage of manufacturing consists of batches of parts that range from 50 to the hundreds and usually performed in batches.
This stage of product development is perfect for VIP's capabilities since our shop floor is divided into departments based on our capabilities. Therefore a department will perform fabrication on all the parts and continue to move them to the next department for its next process to be performed on all parts. Since there are several parts involved, the set up costs are much less per part since the set up costs are allocated by all parts making the total cost per part more reasonable than say a prototype.
