Rapid CNC machining
If you’re searching for rapid CNC machining services, look no further. We have many CNC machines, and provide rapid prototyping plastic or metal parts by CNC turning and milling. We also offer a wide range of material and finishing options and the possibility to combine CNC machining with other rapid prototyping processes.
This technology also allows for improved precision and accuracy in our manufacturing processes, ensuring that the end production parts meets all of your specifications. With our sophisticated equipment and experienced team, we guarantee that you won’t be disappointed in the quality of our CNC rapid prototyping services.
Rapid prototype injection molding
While CNC prototype machining can offer near-instant production of single parts, our rapid injection molding service allows for the creation of multiple identical parts in a short time for testing multiple backups. The process takes longer delivery but is generally worth it, especially for products with strict material and mechanical requirements.
While it is slower than 3D printing or CNC machining, rapid prototype injection molding is a process that results in near-net final shapes and high repeatability. Overall, rapid injection molding offers a cost-effective solution for companies needing multiple identical parts in a short period.
Rapid prototype 3D printing
3D printing is the most common rapid prototyping process. It allows for the speedy production of complex designs with little waste. Our Rapid 3D printing service offers high production speed, accurate dimensional control, and the ability to produce intricate designs.
Meanwhile, with the ability to use multiple printing methods, including FDM, SLS, and SLA, we can ensure that your prototype is precise and well-finished. And because we use no tooling in our process, our lead time is lightning fast.
Rapid sheet metal fabrication
Rapid sheet metal fabrication is a process that allows for the quick creation of metal parts through technology such as laser cutting, stamping, bending, and welding. And rapid sheet metal prototypes are often suitable for flat parts such as brackets and housing. Meanwhile, it can be adapted to various sizes, including very large metal parts.
At our company, we specialize in providing rapid sheet metal fabrication services to meet the needs of various industries, including automotive and aerospace. Our state-of-the-art equipment and experienced team allow us to produce high-quality metal parts efficiently.
Rapid vacuum casting
Rapid vacuum casting is a manufacturing process that uses a silicone mold to quickly and efficiently produce plastic prototypes. It uses a vacuum chamber to eliminate air bubbles and create smooth, high-quality castings.
Our vacuum casting process also allows for multiple castings from one mold, making it a cost-effective option for producing small batches or prototypes. Although vacuum casting parts are not particularly durable, they are removed from the mold with an excellent surface finish without post-treatment.
Material Options for Rapid Prototype machining
When it comes to rapid prototype machining, metal materials are often the best choice. Not only do they offer high strength and durability, but they also allow for precise shaping and detailed designs. Plus, they can easily be polished or finished for a professional look.
Methods of machining metal parts: CNC turning and milling, sheet metal fabrication, casting, 3D printing.
Common metal materials: aluminum, stainless steel, brass, copper, bronze, titanium
Plastic materials are often an excellent choice for rapid prototype machining due to their versatility and accessibility. Additionally, plastic materials have a wide range of properties, such as strength, flexibility, and heat resistance, that make them suitable for various industries and applications.
Methods of machining plastic parts: CNC machining, injection molding, 3D printing, and vacuum casting.
Common plastic materials: ABS, Nylon, PC, PMMA, PP, PEEK, PE, HDPE, PS, POM

Rapid prototype machining FAQs
We have learned that there’s a lot of mixed information online about rapid prototypes.
So here are some of the most common questions we answer for our customers. It helps you quickly understand it.
What is Rapid Prototyping?
Rapid prototyping is a process that allows businesses to create prototypes of their products quickly and efficiently.
This process is often used in the early stages of product development when time is of the essence.
Rapid prototyping can be used for various products, from medical devices to consumer goods.
The process involves using specialized software to create a 3D model of the product. Once the model is complete, it can be printed out using a 3D printer.
In addition to 3D printing, it includes CNC machining, sheet metal fabrication, and rapid injection molding, rapid tooling.
Benefits of Rapid Prototype Machining
There are many benefits of using rapid prototype manufacturing to create prototypes.
First, it is accurate. So, the finished product will closely match the design intent.
Second, it is speedy. So, prototypes can be created quickly and efficiently.
Third, other methods can create complex shapes that would be difficult or impossible.
Overall, rapid machining is an efficient and accurate way to create high-quality prototypes quickly.
What Is The Difference Between Rapid Prototype Machining And 3D Printing?
While 3D printing and rapid prototyping involve creating physical objects from digital designs, there are some key differences between the two processes.
Rapid prototyping utilizes subtractive manufacturing, which removes material from a block to create the desired object.
It typically involves machining with computer-controlled cutting tools.
On the other hand, 3D printing uses an additive manufacturing process in which layers of material are built up to form the object.
Types of Rapid Prototype
Concept model: it is a low-fidelity prototype used to demonstrate and test the overall design concept. It can range from a hand-drawn sketch to a 3D-printed or digitally rendered model.
Display prototype, on the other hand, is typically made of more durable materials and is used for marketing or trade shows. It may have limited functionality but is focused on the aesthetics and appearance of the final product.
Functional prototype: it allows for testing of the product’s functions and features. This type of prototyping often uses production-intent materials and processes, allowing for more accurate feedback on performance and user experience.
Finally, a pre-production prototype takes it further by incorporating final production methods and materials to test before mass manufacturing begins.
Each type of rapid prototype serves a specific purpose in the product development process, ultimately leading to a successful result.
Industrial Applications of Rapid Prototype Parts
The industrial applications for rapid prototyping parts are vast and varied.
This technology can be used for creating prototypes of new products, testing the viability of designs, or even producing end-use parts.
Rapid prototyping has been used in a wide range of industries, from automotive to aerospace to medical.
