How To Do 3D Printing and CNC Machined Manufacturing
Low-volume production is widely used in various machining industries. More and more new designs and products fast& greatly enter our marketing, and increasing speed of the product development and improving time-to-market are a constant struggle for every supplier. As one CNC machined manufacturer, we not only need to keep the quality of the parts but also need to effectively control the production costs. Also, how to do a quality inspection for your CNC machined manufacturing, this is key points, Creatingway will take this blog to share these.
How does high effective production keep manufacturers competitive?
No matter you’re a businessman or manufacturer, no matter what industries you’re in work. Such as Aerospace, automotive, medical devices or consumer electronics industries, etc. Our aim is how to reduce the whole production costs and decrease production time to ensure the new design and parts quickly to market, thus obtain the maximum benefits.
As one company wants to achieve this goal, it will mean that the whole production workflow- from machining to delivery. We need to strictly control the whole production cycles, machining processes, and production time and ensure without any errors, and provide a high quality of the parts and effective delivery time to meet our customer requirements. In addition to this, the part inspection is essential before shipment.
Based on this point, 3D printing makes full use of its advantages: accurately, quickly and precision to meet customer requirements. And with 3D scanning and measurement technology fast development, 3D printing has rapidly occupied the prototype position in CNC machining industries.
How does it work?
When one part is finished, we need to carefully scanning/inspection it before shipment, have a look at whether it is perfect and meet our customer requirements. By the human eyes to inspect it, maybe it will have a few errors; but by 3D printing equipment, you only need to click one button-3D scanning and inspection system, it will automate 3D scanning and inspection for the production parts, no need extra operation and programming.
At the same time, by 3D scanning technology application, it can suppress the deformations in the surface characteristics of the parts under inspection, thus make we’re able to deliver more precision 3D scan data.
Once generated, this report will be able to provide the full data to compare with the CAD model, including in full geometric dimension and tolerance measurement information. This is essential for the parts analysis before production.
How does it save time and the cost for CNC machined manufacturing
With CNC machining comparing, it not only can fast and effective printing some part but also can guarantee the production of high quality without any errors. In general, one simply a 3D prototype, it only needs to take several hours or one day to complete quickly.
For CNC machined manufacturing prototypes, firstly we need to check whether it can be machined on the CNC without any modification. If ok, it will start to program and produce them, this will take 1-2 days. But for some complicated designs and geometric shapes of the parts, we need to further discuss with our customers before production, it will also take at least 1-2 days. Once the design is confirmed, we will start to programming and producing them on the CNC, this will take 2-3 days. As a whole, the CNC machining will take more time than 3D printing, so the whole production costs are higher than 3D printing.
