Mechanical Engineers often face tight deadlines when trying to design new RF shields with form in place gaskets. Projects that seem simple can quickly become complex when multiple components must come together in a timely manner to achieve production goals. Cost overruns, delays, defects, and poor risk control present significant barriers to project success.
One of the biggest challenges mechanical engineers face is the standard four to six-week lead times typical of multi-step CNC-milled RF shields. Component manufactures often view the standard lead times as necessary to mitigate risk and improve quality and cost. However, manufacturers that employ high-quality, vertically-integrated processes can create excellent quick-turn parts by reducing lead times to as little as one to three weeks.
