About The Author

Author: Ronan Ye

After graduating from University, I started working as a project manager for a rapid prototyping company called Rapman in 2006, where I had my first opportunity to learn about the manufacturing process and gain valuable practical experience.

After some time, I was invited to join a foreign-owned rapid prototyping company in Zhongshan as their second employee. We eagerly ventured into the business world and became one of the best companies in China. However, eventually, I felt that I had reached the ceiling of what I could learn working there and decided I needed a new challenge.

That’s why in 2010, I started 3ERP with the goal of providing excellent quality, a wide range of services, fast turnaround time, and affordable prices. This approach helped us win the trust of all of our customers who kept coming back to us with new projects, which helped ensure the consistent growth of the company.

At 3ERP, we have two rules: 1) Quality is always the top priority and 2) try to do things right the first time. Because of that, 3ERP probably has the strictest quality control team in the world; they have the authority to reject any parts while also knowing how to identify the ones that are good enough to pass any test. We never compromise on quality and tolerance, unless compromise makes sense and is agreed to by the customers, which is why our complaint rate remains under 1%.

Being in this business for over 14 years and personally handling thousands of projects has helped me build up the knowledge and experience in all methods of rapid manufacturing. Today, I can confidently provide the best solution for our customers for all project types. In the meantime, I try to pass on my experience to our project managing team, helping them make the right decisions on new projects.


Urethane casting: materials, colors, transparency & common applications

Wednesday October 28, 2020

Urethane casting is a low-cost production technique for the fabrication of rigid or rubber-like plastic parts. Suitable for prototypes and certain end-use parts, urethane casting does not require costly metal tooling, instead of using silicone molds to make a limited number of castings. Customers have several options when it comes to urethane casting. In addition […] Read More

The Entire Process of Mold Making

Tuesday October 13, 2020

When we talk about mold, it is simply a negative impression that you want to cast as per your requirement. It can capture each detail of an object right down to the slightest indentation. Plastic injection molds are usually made from toughened or pre-hardened steel, aluminum, or copper alloy. When we talk about the most […] Read More

Making stronger IM parts with fiber reinforced & filled materials

Friday August 28, 2020

Injection molding is a manufacturing process that produces strong and durable parts in giant quantities. It is one of the most cost-effective manufacturing processes and works with a wide array of plastic materials, including thermoplastics and thermosets. You can even mold plastic components over other materials using overmolding and insert molding. Sometimes, however, typical injection […] Read More
