Basic Metal Terminology

In order to communicate with your metal supplier most effectively, and more importantly, in order to choose the material best suited for your particular applications, you need to understand some basic engineering terms used in most metal catalogs. Stress Stress is usually expressed in pounds per square inch (psi). It represents the load in pounds

CNC Machining for Rapid Prototyping

CNC Machining and Rapid Prototyping Prototyping, also known as prototype manufacturing, is the process where a manufacturer creates a small batch of products from digital design drawings. Manufacturers can use these functional prototypes to find flaws in the design and fix them before producing large numbers of parts. Companies can also use prototypes to participate

Plastic Material for CNC Machining Prototyping

Prototyping Materials  According to the materials used in the production, the prototype model can be divided into plastic prototype and metal prototype. At present, the mainstream material of the prototype model is plastic. It is due to the large number of applications of plastic products. The prototype model is directly produced with the same material,

CNC Prototypes Manufacturing 1 : Programming and Optimization

The Importance of Prototypes The three-dimensional design software used in modern industrial design can intuitively express the three-dimensional model of the product on the screen, perform simulation assembly and motion simulation, and even static and dynamic analysis. But the screen is flat after all, and the size is limited, it can not be compared with

Aluminium for CNC Machining Prototyping

Aluminium is a lightweight material. It is essentially non-magnetic, which makes aluminum suitable for CNC machining. It has a low deformation coefficient, high dimensional stability, and impact resistance. Therefore, aluminum and aluminum alloys can maintain accurate dimensions under different conditions (such as temperature fluctuations, external shocks, etc.). Aluminum part Aluminum part Previous Next The most commonly
