Which Industries is the Rapid Prototype Machining Suitable For?

Ⅰ. About rapid prototype machining

Rapid prototype machining is a rapid prototyping technology that has taken the world by storm. It is popular with industrial designers and engineers worldwide as it helps them bring ideas, ideas, concepts and designs to life and undergo usability testing. Recent rapid prototyping techniques have grown considerably and have begun to develop as an extension of rapid tooling. Turning is also one of the most important uses for rapid prototyping applications.

Ⅱ. Industries applicable to rapid prototype machining

Rapid prototype machining is applicable to all walks of life. Most people will probably test and validate their designs with some models before production to reduce the failure losses of direct molding. They also needed to produce high-quality prototypes in very little time. So when related projects come, they tend to use this rapid prototype machining technology to help them complete their projects. Some of the industries we know and serve are as follows:

1. Consumer electronics industry: Rapid prototype machining is used to make models of consumer electronics products before mass production. Usually, such products have high requirements on appearance. Therefore, the surface treatment of spray paint is often used to produce these products. Its unit value is not great, but the design of the same product is updated frequently, and the model needs to be remade after changing the design.

2. Automotive Industry: When a company decides to develop a new type of car or vehicle, their designers and engineers have to start their design work all over again. Completing a prototype in Automotive/Vehicle takes a lot of time, especially for various lighting such as tail lights, fog lights, etc. The relevant prototype is completed in the first place to verify its design before making a model.

3. Aerospace/Defense Industry: In this industry, it is difficult to see a fully designed prototype product. We often process parts for unknown products. It's more of a creative visual product. Prototypes in these industries often have special requirements for surface treatments, such as salt resistance, etc.

4. Medical industry: In this field, prototypes usually come from medical devices. Plastic raw materials are often used to make prototypes. Once the prototype is complete and design feasibility is proven, low-volume production is often supported by urethane casting.

5. Home appliance industry: Many prototypes made in this industry are products that we often see in our daily life. For example, rice cookers, air conditioners, washing machines are frequently featured in our rapid prototyping list. These products are usually processed into several parts and then assembled together.
