How CNC Prototype Machining Applies to Various Industries
CNC prototype machining offers awesome tolerance and other pros over other fabricating methods. This makes the process applicable to an array of industries. Here is further insight into the example of these industries.
Examples of The CNC Prototype Machining Services We Offer
The Medical Industry
The medical sector heavily relies on the accuracy of its tools. In more than enough cases, an error of 0.01 mm may be what patients need to survive. For instance, medical scalpels must be razor-sharp to achieve the best of results. How do you think we sharpen or even manufacture them? Another case is the high-speed medical centrifuge. Medics use them to ferment or separate chemicals. They do so by revolving at amazing speeds. Some even reach up to 100,000 RPM. Friction is a common problem that may arise in such a case.
To withstand the friction, we set the spindle in the airfoil bearings. This takes a number of tests to perfect hence CNC prototype machining becomes key. The shaft rotates in the air. At such great speeds, a change in the spindle radial beat causes excess friction. This results in the burning of the bearings and the spindle shoot out from the centrifuge. The only way we can achieve an accurate shaft is by continuous CNC prototype machining. We can then proceed to grind and polish it to cater to the client’s needs. The main pro CNC prototype machining offers is that it first allows us to achieve the desired tolerance. We can then easily repeat it using the set CNC program.
The Aerospace Industry
Space shuttles and planes are some of the most complex inventions humans have come up with. The parts that make up the engine work under the most strain and worst conditions possible. These include high temperatures, corrosive elements, and other dynamic forces. These conditions lower the life span of most aerospace parts. Luckily, after a lot of trial and error via CNC prototype machining, we can produce reliable machines.
We first use durable and strong materials in making aerospace parts. However, these durable materials happen to be hard to machine. They need the hardest of tool materials to process them. What follows material selection is a complex process. In addition, it entails consecutive machining methods.
For instance, when working on a titanium part, we turn or mill them a few times. We do so at varying speeds and feed rates. We then proceed to grind it with a few different grinding wheels and afterward polish it to perfection. Each process needs top-notch accuracy, which may not be possible without CNC prototype machining.
The Power Industry
CNC prototype machining takes up at least 60% of steam turbine manufacturing time. The most complex part of the system is the turbine blades. We normally mass-produce them by casting. When it comes to prototyping, it somewhat differs. Casting happens to be relatively more costly than CNC milling. Milling ends up becoming the go-to option. We first cut the entire blade from a blank cylinder. We then proceed to carry out various experiments on it. This helps us determine if it can withstand the temperatures and loads.
The Automotive Industry
The automotive sector is renowned for constantly reinventing itself. New vehicles emerge every year at a mass production rate. CNC prototype machining heavily comes into play in this case. This is due to the CNC program that we write as a template for the mass production of cars. In addition, CNC prototype machining is proving to be vital in making the car’s engine. This is since it needs a high tolerance between the seat and the piston that is a few microns. We also use it in making perfectly clear vehicle lights. It uses an accurate diamond-cutting tool that moves quickly and at the smallest of feeds.
The Electrical Industry
Metal is the key material in making electrical circuits, fans, processors, and resistors. Most electrical boards are small and require precise connections to avoid short-circuiting. CNC prototype machining is vital to the manufacture of top-notch electrical gadgets. There is no choice other than to machine transistors and plates using CNC machining. This ensures we achieve proper efficiency in modern circuit prototypes.
