How should you choose a sheet metal custom?
When you are just starting to develop a new product, you need to make a custom model. So what are the ways to customize a good hand model for a new product?
The first is to verify the appearance.
The second is the verification function.
The third is to participate in the exhibition, use the sheet metal processing hand to replace the products at the exhibition to show, do the pre-publicity work, and even get orders.
Fourth, direct sales, such as structural hand boards, also called function hand boards, can be directly sold as products on the market, verifying the market's reaction to the product.
When customers are customizing the sheet metal, they still need to find a professional sheet metal processing factory. If the precision of the opponent board is high, try to choose aluminum alloy materials, because the equipment for processing aluminum alloy hand is relatively advanced, processing precision. It can reach 0.05mm and the processing speed is also fast. However, when doing CNC hand-making, there are some details that need our attention.
1: Determining material properties Products with high temperature resistance, high wear resistance and high toughness have different material requirements, and whether overall processing is required is also related to materials. If you need to do high-temperature hand, the material is better with pps, can withstand 300 ° high temperature; if you do transparent hand, PC and acrylic materials are better; if you do it, ABS material is a good choice, it's Strong viscosity.
2: Determine the processing method
1) CNC machining The material is machined and CNC machined on the CNC machining center, and with the exquisite manual processing, the hand model of CNC machining is completed.
2) Rapid prototyping SLA is also called light modeling or laser curing rapid prototyping. SLA hand forming process occupies a large share of the 3D printing market.
3) Silicone Duplex Vacuum Duplicate can be prototyped by various processing methods such as CNC, SLA, etc., and then copied through prototype. The copied products have high precision and good strength, and can meet various functions of design requirements. It is suitable for trial production of small-volume functional parts, reducing the cost and risk of mold opening.
3: Determining the surface treatment The surface treatment of the general hand plate is electroplating, sand blasting, fuel injection, oxidation, wire drawing, etc. The processing cost and duration of different effects will be very different, so it is the key to determine your own needs in advance. Where. It is worth noting that oxidation is only suitable for aluminum alloy hand plates, and other materials can not be oxidized.
4: Determining the processing cost Because the sheet metal fast proofing only needs to invest a small amount of money, so the overall calculation is also very critical, first determine your own needs and budget, and then select the appropriate sheet metal processing factory according to the actual situation, if If you have a good budget, you can choose a large sheet metal processing factory, so that the quality of the customized sheet metal is guaranteed.
