Rapid prototype is a high-tech manufacturing technique based on the stacking of materials. It is deemed as an important achievement of manufacturing in past 20 years. Combined with mechanical engineering, CAD, reverse engineering, 3D printing, numerical controlling, materials science and laser forming, prototype or small-batch parts with certain functions can be produced automatically, quickly and precisely according to the design drawing. It provides a high-efficient but low-cost solutionto prototype manufacturing and new product’s verification.
Rapid prototype is the process of making the prototype by stacking of materials with 3D data and 3D printer. It can also be made by CNC numerical center, sending order to machine in the form of numbers or characters. Then CNC machine will process various metal materials according to the order. The cutter will move automatically along the route and finish the processing of the prototype.
The biggest advantage of rapid prototype isthe high speed of processing. The prototypes can be made within several hours when the quantity is small, the structure of the prototype is simple and there is no need of surface treatment. After forming of prototype, to ensure the hardness, strength, and performance can meet the demand of design, a series of surface treatments may be required.
Bordersun focus on rapid prototype for 18 years, helping customers to present their product out of CAD drawing. We have over 20 sets of high precision CNC machines, and the maximum capability is 1.8*0.8*0.6m. With such capability, we can finish CNC metal prototype of any quantity within 7 working days, helping customers verify the accuracy of product’s material, dimension and color quickly.
CNC Metal Prototype Services provides various metal prototypes, including prototype of aluminum alloy, titanium alloy, copper, stainless steel or aluminum magnesium alloy and so on. Due to the hardness of metal materials, CNC machining cannot be as fast as plastic prototypes. And the machining time varies according to different CNC metal prototype. Therefore, we will choose different cutter for different metal materials. With the suitable cutter, the precision of the prototype can be guaranteed.
To get the feedback of product design quickly, customers need to finish the verification of appearance and structure simultaneously after the completion of new product design. CNC machining rapid prototype can make it simultaneously. And it is widely used in manufacture industry worldwide.
Copper has excellent cutting performance, high strength, easy welding and corrosion resistance. During the CNC machining process, the structure is very stable, difficult to be affected by force. And it is usually used in connection parts, vault, stem bearing and so on. Beside copper has good electrical and thermal conductivity, so CNC machining copper prototype is often used in the cover of radiator and the parts of bellows, wave-guide, door, and lamps. And the durability makes the copper become the first choice for most jigs and fixtures.
Our factory specializes in manufacturing of CNC Machining Aluminium Prototype.
Because of the high strength and good abrasive resistance of stainless steel, it is used widely in the field of food, machinery, electromechanics, domestic appliance and so on. It is a metal with the wide appliance and high cost-performance. The surface treatment of CNC Stainless Steel Prototype includes whitening, mirror polishing and surface coloration.
The density of magnesium is low, equals 1/5 of steel, 1/4 of zinc and 2/3 of aluminum. It’s the lightest metal as far as we know, but it has high strength and good stiffness. The CNC machining magnesium alloy prototype is very exquisite. As one of the countries with most abundant magnesium resource, China possesses nearly half of magnesium in the world, with plenty and high-quality magnesium raw material. Therefore, customers can get the best CNC magnesium alloy prototype with most favorable price.
