Rapid prototyping with 3D printing is the quick, easy, cost effective way to turn great ideas into successful products. Do you need concept modeling to put your newest ideas to the test? What about functional prototyping to gauge performance before committing to costly production tooling? Rapid prototyping solutions from Longxiang will give you the flexibility to create, test and refine in ways you never thought possible so you can go to market faster than ever before.
Longxiang is recognized as the leader in the rapid prototyping industry. Longxiang has achieved this status through its experience, capacity, contributions to the industry, and most importantly, customer satisfaction.Longxiang goes beyond just providing you parts. In addition, our team of experts provides guidance to ensure parts are designed to deliver optimum performance and efficient. Normally we make the prototypes with ABS, Nylon, POM, Aluminum by high speed CNC which are extremely close to the real molding and it only takes you about 3 days. In addition, you just need to spend 10-15days in building the rapid tooling which could at least reaches 500-1000shots tooling life at a reasonable and affordable price
How many kinds of prototypes Longxiang make?
1.CNC Machined Prototypes
CNC Machined Prototypes are available at LONGXIANG in a wide range of hard plastics and metals. Using this technology, we can produce your prototypes out of the real material rather than a simulant. CNC Prototyping is one of our major services in LONGXIANG China. The most commonly machined materials in LONGXIANG are ABS, PMMA, Nylon, Delrin, aluminum 6061 T6 and 7075 T6, titanium alloy, brass and steel. Tight tolerances can be achieved by precision CNC machining.
Our service is quick, personalized and at a low cost. Furthermore we offer various finishing services, which range from sandblasting, painting, anodizing, mirror polishing, to printing and more. Our engineers can help you decide if a CNC machined prototype is right for your project. Normally STEP or IGES 3D CAD data along with PDF drawings are required for this process.
2. Polyurethane Castings (Vacuum Castings)
Vacuum cast parts made by us look almost the same as real injection molded parts. This process is the ideal option for small batches customized plastic parts. It involves first making a master model via SLA or CNC, then creating a silicone mold around the part to produce multiple identical polyurethane prototypes. The tool life of the silicone mould is around 15 shots. CNC machining is the chosen process if the master pattern is bulky or thick, or vacuum castings must have an excellent high gloss finish. For high gloss parts, we will CNC the master pattern out of PMMA (Acrylic) and hand polish it to achieve the gloss.
3. 3D Printed Rapid Prototypes
3D printed prototypes are ideal for manufacturing very thin walled and small complex prototypes. If speed is a critical factor, then 3D printing is the best way to go. We provide SLA and SLS prototypes in a variety of plastic materials. SLA prototyping is a fast way to produce ABS-like prototypes. LONGXIANG specialize in delivering accurate SLA and SLS rapid prototypes.
For the possible long term and reliable relationship with you in the prototype field again, I would like to re-introduce more about our prototype capabilities to you again as follows:
1. We guarantee all quotations will issued within 24 hours as this is just same as our normal working procedure;
2. The main material for prototypes are ABS, PMMA, Nylon, POM, Al. alloy, Sillicon gel, SS403, etc.
3. We have painting and printing machines in house. So you can get any color for the prototypes.
4. Normaly we machine the prototype by CNC, then to joint together and Polish, paint. The prototype we make are really the same as the real products;
5. The equipment list for the rapid prototype side:
4 CNC machine
1 painting machine
1 printing machine
1 silk printing machine LONGXIANG Product SHOW
