Prototyping

CNC Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing Services

Develop fully functioning rapid prototypes for metals and plastics before you venture into extensive manufacturing. At Macfab, we 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 centers employ subtractive precision machining processes. 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 and a 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 lathe and turning centres can handle parts with turning diameters between 1 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 the provided 3D CAD model. Our lathe machines are a perfect fit for high-volume product mix and 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 uses CAD and DXF-neutral files to manufacture quality parts.

Flexibility In Material Choice

null

CNC machining allows hard metal like cast iron to be machined efficiently to create prototypes. From 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 the jobs on the chuck or the workpiece holder. The possibility of errors with this approach is almost zero, if not completely nil.

Scalability And Reduced Lead Time

null

A CNC machine can produce batch 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 deliberating between two designs, CNC prototyping can help you make an informed decision. 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 production as well as save costs, rework, and time.
