RPM Reverse Engineering Program

Zeiss Reverse Engineering QC LabOur reverse engineering department is highly experienced at producing the best results in an efficient and cost effective process as possible. Our insight into so many different industries is what truly sets our reverse engineering department apart from the rest.

Rice Precision Manufacturing has developed a highly successful procedure for the replacement of OEM parts for high quality, low cost “reverse engineered” products.

In many cases, stockroom personnel or maintenance supervisors will work directly with us to identify the parts that are well suited for the Reverse Engineering program. Historically, our customers have been able to achieve thousands of dollars in savings by implementing our Reverse Engineering Program with successful proven results.


A Proven Process Yields Precision Success

OEM Replacement Parts StockroomWhen approved for the reverse engineering program, samples are shipped to RPM. To help us greatly increase our first sample success percentage, we ask that the managers do their best to provide the following:

  • An OEM, unused original part
  • Environmental operating conditions
  • Wear conditions or used/failed parts
  • Target pricing for success
  • Quantities or order histories
  • Minimum/maximum quantity requirements for RPM




Custom Conveyor with Non-Stick Surface BeltA full dimensional engineered drawing and first article sample will be created. The sample will be shipped to the customer for final approval. The approval sheet will list our cost to Storeroom Solutions, our minimum and maximum quantities, a lead time for a first production run, and finally a “sign off” approval field for our records.
