1. SCHEDULED SHIP DATE
is determined based on the above quoted business days starting from
the date of Soligen's Purchase Order Acknowledgment (POA), and
based on the actual shop load at Soligen at the date of POA issuance.
Soligen will make all reasonable efforts to deliver within the quoted
lead time. Issuance of a POA is dependent upon: i) receipt of the Customer's
Purchase Order and; (ii) Customer's final CAD (STL/PRT) file and; (iii)
approval by Soligen of the readability and the completeness of the CAD
file. Note related items under Soligen Machining
2. PART GEOMETRY:
- Controlling Documentation:
The cast part will conform only to the CAD (STL / PRT) file.
Differences between the CAD file and other documentation may affect
delivery and cost and will not apply to the parts unless otherwise
agreed in writing prior to launching production.
- Inspection: In
order to perform dimensional inspection, Soligen requests finalized
inspection drawings of the cast part. These drawings are for reference
only; the CAD file remains the controlling documentation.
- Machining Stock:
The approved part CAD file must allow for machining stock for
any feature that is to be machined. In order to allow for casting
tolerances, Soligen requires machining stock of at least 3 millimeters.
For parts where the CAD file does not provide adequate machining stock,
Soligen may add machining stock as we deem appropriate unless specifically
instructed by the Customer. While Soligen will strive to coordinate
any changes for prior Customer approval, Soligen assumes no liability
for inadequate or excess machine stock unless otherwise agreed and
unless the Customer has provided machining drawings and/or models.
- Filling Holes:
Per standard foundry practice, Soligen may fill threads, small holes
and slots unless otherwise specified.
- Draft: DSPC does
not require draft, however to allow for a smooth transition to manufacturing,
please consider adding draft to your CAD file (2° for sand cast
- Minimum Wall Thickness:
Should be greater than 3 millimeters unless otherwise specified.
3. THE CAST PART:
- Grade: Castings
will be of commercial grade.
- Tolerances: Standard
ASTM sand cast tolerances apply.
- Weld repair: Unless
otherwise specified, Soligen may make weld repairs where necessary
to provide sound castings.
- Surface finish:
Unless otherwise specified, parts are supplied with surface finish
of 200 to 300 rms. Finer surface finish generally requires additional
processing and can be provided upon special request at additional
For certain geometries, heat treatment may cause warpage. No straightening
and/or fixtures are included in this quotation unless specified.
- NDT: When specified,
X-ray and mechanical properties testing may include selected hardness
testing and test bars. If only test bars are required with no testing
by Soligen, these will be provided at no charge.
4. NON RECURRING ENGINEERING
(NRE) CHARGE: (when applicable)
- Non Recurring Engineering
(NRE) charges may include temporary (or "soft") tooling.
Temporary tooling is designed to produce at least the specified quantity.
If refurbishing is required for additional pieces, added charges will
apply unless otherwise agreed.
- Soligen may dispose of
temporary tools after 30 days from completing the order, unless otherwise
requested in writing by the Customer.
SOLIGEN MACHINING AND FINISHING:
- Final machining drawings
must be received by Soligen not later than 5 business days after the
POA date and not less than 12 business days prior to projected ship
date. Delay of final drawings will normally delay shipment. Later
modification of drawings may result in delays and additional charges.
- If final machining drawings
and requirements were not available to Soligen at the time of quotation,
Soligen reserves the right to modify the machining NRE and part costs.
Cost changes normally apply only where the requirements include unexpected
machining steps or setups, tighter than anticipated tolerances, or
special machining requirements such as honing, EDM, etc. Unexpected
requirements may also delay part shipment due to the extra processing
steps involved. No additional machining or finishing work will be
performed unless the Customer provides written authorization for the
- Other special requirements
such as coating, anodizing, painting, NDT will also affect price and
delivery if they are not anticipated and specified at the time of
- Prices are in U.S.
dollars ($). California Sales Tax of 8.25% is included in Non-Recurring
Engineering (NRE) items. Other duty and taxes, if applicable, are not
- Validity: This quotation
is valid for 30 days unless otherwise stated and is based upon CAD or
part specifications provided at time of quotation; it is subject to
change upon receipt of new or updated information.
- Non Destructive Testing
(NDT), test bars or certificates: Unless otherwise specified, these
are not included in the above quoted price. They can be provided at
- Shipment is FOB Soligen's
facilities in Northridge or Santa Ana, California. Shipment will be
overnight and insured, unless otherwise specified in writing by the
- Overage: Soligen
will ship up to 10% overage on any order produced off tooling (therefore
excluding DSPC) unless specified to the contrary in writing on the purchase
- Payment Terms - NRE:
50% of NRE charges are due with Purchase Order; balance is due on First
- Payment Terms - Parts:
Net 30 days from shipment unless otherwise specified. Letter of Credit
is required for orders / shipments outside of the USA and Canada.
- Late Charge: A late
charge of one and one half percent (1.5%) per month is due on any unpaid
balance extending past the payments terms listed.
