Rapid prototype machining is one of the prototype making process by using CNC machines. Fast turnaround and high accuracy can be achieved with a wide variety of materials. Our prototyping process is most often used when form, fit, and function are a priority during the product development process. Whether you need a single custom machined part or many, we have the capacity to get prototypes in your hands fast.
XINGDA CNC LIMITED are capable to manufacture CNC machined parts with custom surface finishes at a competitive price or provide manufacturing advice to make your custom-designed CNC parts easier to produce and cost-effective. Contact us now for your project of CNC machining parts.
When our customers choose us as their rapid prototype machining company, we can offer prototype CNC machining with our 1-2 week manufacturing lead time, we can produce nearly any machined part prototype our customer can design in a very short time frame.
What is CNC Machining?
Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining is a manufacturing process in which computer inputs are used to control machining tools such as drills and lathes. It is used across many industries for a variety of prototype and end-use parts.
The process starts with a digital 3D design, created using CAD software, which a computer can translate into a series of instructions to the machine’s cutting tools. These instructions are known as G-code. Once the G-code is sent to the machine, very little manual supervision is needed, since the machine knows when and where to cut and performs the machining autonomously. This results in significant time and cost savings when compared to traditional machining, in which a skilled machinist cuts the workpiece using manually operated cutting tools.
Machining is a subtractive process, which means the equipment removes existing material instead of introducing new material. Unlike additive manufacturing, in which a 3D printer deposits material in layers to form an object, CNC machining involves cutting sections away from a formless block known as the “workpiece.” Excess material is discarded or recycled, eventually leaving behind a completed part. More complex CNC machines, those with a greater number of axes, are capable of cutting the workpiece in more complex ways, producing parts with more intricate geometries.
CNC Mills: CNC mills are capable of running on programs comprised of number- and letter-based prompts that guide pieces across various distances. The programming employed for a mill machine could be based on either G-code or some unique language developed by a manufacturing team. Basic mills consist of a three-axis system (X, Y and Z), though most newer mills can accommodate three additional axes.
3-Axis CNC Machining
CNC Lathes: In lathe machines, pieces are cut in a circular direction with indexable tools. With CNC technology, the cuts employed by lathes are carried out with precision and high velocity. CNC lathes are used to produce complex designs that wouldn’t be possible on manually run versions of the machine. Overall, the control functions of CNC-run mills and lathes are similar. As with CNC mills, lathes can be directed by G-code or unique proprietary code. However, most CNC lathes consist of two axes — X and Z.
CNC Turning Machining
CNC machining is a widely used manufacturing process thanks to its versatility, accuracy, consistency and wide range of compatible materials: although aluminum alloys are the most common material for machining, numerous other metals and plastics can also be used.
