CNC Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing Services

Develop fully functioning rapid prototypes for metals and plastics before you venture into extensive manufacturing. We, at Macfab, fabricate precision prototypes and parts by leveraging appropriate CNC machines using materials you want for final production. This helps save costs, enables testing of components for design finalization, and avoids manufacturing rework.

Using tools such as CNC lathes, mills, and drills, our expert machinists deliver precision prototyping and mass manufacturing services. It begins with your 3D CAD model as input and forming NC codes for our CNC machines.

Based on your specifications, tolerances, and limits we add machining process allowances to your design geometry and create top-quality parts. You get faster TATs, accurate machining services, desired surface finish, and customized manufacturing with Macfab.

CNC Machining Prototype – Milling Services

Macfab’s CNC Mill centres employ subtractive precision machining processes at milling shops. Partner with us to manufacture seamlessly with CNC mills having variable spindle speeds between 4000 to 10000 RPM.

Backed by several multi-axis CNC milling machines, we are fully equipped to undertake projects needing high-speed delivery and accuracy. We focus on collaborating with you for milling operations for mass production as well as few prototypes usually made-to-order. You get a surface finish of your choice and quality that meets all international manufacturing standards.

CNC Machining Prototype: Turning Services

Our high-precision CNC lathes turning centers can handle parts with turning diameters between 1 inch and 18 inches.

In a typical turning operation, the job/workpiece is rotated at a very high RPM. Meanwhile, the cutting tool is kept steady against the job to produce the desired shape. We engage with various industries needing precision parts to fabricate components as per provided 3D CAD model. Our lathe machines are a perfect fit for high volume low product mix as well as one-off components.

Benefits of CNC Prototyping Services

Digital Manufacturing

null

Macfab runs digitized manufacturing operations. This ensures controlled precision, tolerances, geometry, and finish. Each tool path is designed based on a CAD file and DXF neutral files to manufacture quality parts.

Flexibility In Material Choice

null

CNC machining allows even hard metal like cast iron to be machined easily and create prototypes. Starting with plastics to high carbon content steel, it offers you a vast range of material types to choose from.

Reduced Manufacturing Errors

null

As every operation is controlled and designed using computer N and G codes, human intervention is minimal. The only stages requiring a manual operation are loading and unloading of the jobs on the chuck or the workpiece holder. Such an approach involves almost zero possibility of errors, if not completely nil.

Scalability And Reduced Lead Time

null

A CNC machine can produce batches of components in the hundreds and thousands with accelerated manufacturing lead times. It can replicate parts until new information is fed to the machine.

Easy And Reliable Testing

null

When you are deliberating between two designs, CNC prototyping can help you make informed decisions. CNC machining rapidly creates prototypes of an actual product and puts them under physical testing conditions before large-scale production. This helps to speed up the production as well as save costs, rework, and time.
