Characteristics of metal prototype processing

Nov 29 , 2023 | Blog

Metal prototype processing is a method of manufacturing prototypes. Prototypes are used to display product appearance design, detect the rationality of structure and function, and serve as reference objects for mold design, etc. Metal prototype processing is generally performed using CNC machining centers. The CNC machining center can automatically select and replace tools according to the program, change the machine tool spindle speed, feed amount, movement trajectory of the tool relative to the workpiece and other auxiliary functions, and complete multi-process processing on several surfaces of the workpiece in sequence, thereby producing products that meet the design requirements of prototype model.


The characteristics of metal prototype processing are as follows:

Can intuitively display the appearance design of the product.

Check the rationality of structure and function.

The reference for mold design can avoid the risk of mold repair and modification.

Leading the market with CNC prototype models and shortening the development cycle.

The disadvantage of metal prototype processing is that the sample data parameters are slightly worse than those of the mold products.


The raw materials used in the processing and production of metal prototypes include ABS (transparent, ultra-high temperature resistance, black, etc.), POM, PMMA, MC (nylon), PC, PP, PA, BT, PVC, etc.
