What is RSG Prototype Service?

Services

RSG Prototype Service specializes in prototype and short run CNC and manual machining, 3D CAD design and manufacturing consulting for a variety of industries, including scientific, medical and space-based instrumentation. 


Work can be done entirely to your specifications or I can work under your guidelines to design and produce the complete project with drawings, if required. 

Specialties

  • Scientific, laboratory and space-based instrumentation with emphasis on microchannel plate detectors and related equipment. 
  • Electronics enclosures
  • Design and fabrication of graphite fixtures for hydrogen furnace brazing of ceramic-to-metal parts. 
  • Manufacturing jigs, fixtures, tooling and functional gauges.

Materials

  • Metals, including stainless and alloy steels, Kovar®, aluminum alloys, copper, brass, bronze, graphite and others. 
  • Plastics, including PEEK, ULTEM®, acetal, PTFE, polycarbonate, acrylic, polyethylene and others.  

Efficiency and Flexibility

RSG Prototype Service can design and/or manufacture your prototype project in a fraction of the time of many other companies. I can do this because I only do prototype work. I don't do production jobs that would tie up the equipment for weeks or months at a time. Consequently, I have optimized my setup processes to the point where I can often produce "rush" jobs in just a few days, not several weeks. Since my overhead is low, my prices are quite reasonable, considering the outstanding quality and service you will receive compared to most job shops. For new customers, I also accept payments through PayPal. See the PayPal page for details.  

Quality

Having spent a significant portion of my career working with the scientific community, I can better understand the application of your project, where most other job shops may not pay as close attention to your critical details.  I also take great pride in my workmanship. Since I am very experienced in producing work that will be carefully scrutinized, you can be assured that you will get accurate parts that look great and work properly in mission-critical situations.

Software

I use the current release of SolidWorks CAD software to view and design your parts and assemblies in 3D. This helps me to see it as a working assembly (or not) before I make it so there are no surprises at assembly time. I can also collaborate with non-SolidWorks users using eDrawings Professional, which will enable you to examine, measure and markup your project in 3D on your own computer screen. I can also translate just about any other CAD format and work with it. 


For CNC machining, I use Mastercam CAM software to machine the part in the most efficient manner, greatly reducing programming time and practically eliminating programming errors.
