Benefits of Using CNC Machining For Rapid Prototype
Computer numerical control (CNC) machining technology is a traditional process in the manufacturing industry. It can facilitate the creation of products with a high degree of precision. CNC Machining technology for rapid prototypes is better in the plastic and metal production industries. Many prototyping tooling companies use CNC machining technology since it is easy and convenient to operation and control product quality.
CNC Machining allows for the control of machine tools with numerical codes. The CNC machining language which is also referred to as G-Code and is significant in ensuring controls of various functions such as the velocity and coordination. Many companies prefer using CNC machining because of the numerous advantages that are explained below.
CNC Machining Technology is Fast and Reliable
CNC Machining is among the most reliable methods when doing mass production. With the use of CNC machines, companies can save on labor costs because they do not require human personnel to operate them. The CNC machines can run all day and night effectively and with excellent efficiency.
The CNC machining technology allows for faster production since there is no need of taking breaks. The programming of the machine tools with G-code enhances the automation process hence speeding up the production. The reliability, effectiveness, and high speed in manufacturing have made the demand for CNC machines to significantly increase.
CNC Machining Technology Guarantees Accuracy
CNC machine technology is ideal for job requirements that require a high level of precision. CNC machining technology has no room for errors which enables it to produce exact results. The CNC machining technology is beneficial in the high-end product that requires mass production of precisely similar products. CNC machining accuracy level usually is +/-0.05mm or more high, Some of our machines can meet +/-0.02mm. These tolerance requirements we can meet for each of parts for mass production like quantities is 100 piece or 1000 pieces or more.
In addition to this, when we use CNC machining technology to produce medical device, aerospace or automotive under high precision and high demands. And using related machining process to make a higher level standard to meet your requirements.
CNC Machining is Easy to Adjust
We use CNC machines to enjoy the production of various products because of the flexibility of these machines. The CNC machines can be easily reprogrammed to alter the production pattern. The installation of new programs can also improve production. The CNC machines have an advantage over other machines because the production cost of altering the way the device operates is zero. So when you want to make different versions for rapid prototypes under minor modification, CNC machining is a better choice to you.
CNC Machining Can Do Metal and Plastic Materials
CNC Machining is flexible to operate on many rigid materials includes metal and plastic materials such as aluminum or steel, Peek or Nylon. It is possible to design prototypes using various materials with CNC technology. Mass production of identical prototypes is possible, which allows engineers and designers to use their creativity in production. For example, you can use CNC machining to produce one prototype with three materials for comparison (7075 aluminum, 303 stainless steel, and Peek). so your design and engineers team can decide what material is suitable for your product.
CNC Machining Parts Can Be Done Different Coating
When using CNC machining to produce the metal and plastic parts, there are lots of finishing process for your products, such as aluminum anodizing, steel polishing or passivation, mission polishing. and plastic parts we have painting, chrome coating. So your products if we will use CNC machining process to complete, final product appearance will be very beautiful.
CNC Machining Requires No Additional Tooling
CNC machining process only asks the different cutting tools for CNC milling&turning machines based on the complex shape of products. Different shapes and types of cutting toolings installed and perform various cutting functions. These cutting toolings can be properly exchanged when the automatic turntable need different toolings quickly.
Comparing the plastic injection mold and pressure die casting both require using additional steel toolings, We will take several weeks to complete these toolings based on their complexity. Also, usually we used the vacuum casting require silicon molds to complete the rapid prototype ( Making the silicon mold and master need several days). When making complex and transparent parts with more quantities, both silicon mold and plastic injection mold are a good choice, also, It’s surface we can do texture than CNC machining only can do smooth.
