Our products are rigorously tested; quality and product safety checks are built into the process of production and all finished assemblies are 100% tested and inspected.

Functional testing: includes pull test and measurement of crimped contacts and for cables are continuity, insulation, impedance, resistance, and Hi-pot. Each assembly is 100% electrically tested. We use only the highest quality and product safety test equipment and custom test fixtures for each assembly. Test setups vary in design from simple circuit-completion test lights/buzz to the state-of-the-art computer-controlled testers and multi-circuit stand alone testers with proof of test printout. Test and measuring equipment is calibrated by an outside source traceable to N.I.S.T.

Non-Functional testing: visual inspection ensures that each cable or cable harness assembly is to specified workmanship standards and to your specifications.

In our 45 years of doing business, we have developed an excellent reputation for producing the highest quality and safety products available by paying very close attention to the details of component manufacturer's assembly instructions.

Environment: Here at Rapid Manufacturing, we are conscientious about the environment and our impact on it. Rapid Manufacturing is a global company with a global footprint. To reduce our footprint, we implemented environmental policies and promote ways to mitigate our footprint.

One way is that we are ISO 14001 certified, showing our commitment to the environment. Having an environmental management system improves our environmental performance through the efficient use of resources and reduction of waste. Rapid Manufacturing complies with applicable environmental requirements, established by statutory and regulatory bodies.

At Rapid Manufacturing, we also recycle our waste. Recycling production waste reintroduces the material back into the manufacturing life cycle. This reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators and conserves natural resources. We prevent pollution by reducing the need to collect raw materials.
