At the beginning of the development of new products, we need to do the customization of the hand model. So what are the ways to customize a good model for new products?
One is to verify the appearance.
The second is the verification function.
The third is to participate in the exhibition, use the handboards processed by sheet metal to replace the products to display in the exhibition, do a good job in the early publicity work, and even get orders.
Fourth, direct sales, such as structural boards, also known as functional boards, can be directly sold as products in the market to verify the market's response to the product.
Most customers are in the custom of sheet metal handplate, or need to find a professional sheet metal processing manufacturer. If the handplate has high precision requirements, try to choose aluminum alloy materials. Because the aluminum alloy processing handplate equipment is more advanced, the processing accuracy reaches 0.05mm, and the processing speed is also fast. But when making CNC hand boards, we also need to pay attention to some details.
1: It is also related to the material to determine the different requirements of high temperature resistance, wear resistance and high toughness products for the material and whether the overall processing is required. If you need to make a high temperature resistant hand board, PPS material is better, which can withstand the high temperature of 300 ℃; for example, transparent hand board, PC and acrylic material are better; when disassembling, ABS material is a good choice, because it has strong viscosity.
2: Determine the processing method
1) In CNC machining center, the materials are carved and milled, and the hand model of CNC machining is completed by exquisite manual processing.
2) Rapid prototyping SLA is also known as light modeling or laser curing rapid prototyping. SLA hand plate forming technology has a large share in 3D printing market.
3) The vacuum compound mold of silica gel compound mold can get the prototype through CNC, SLA and other processing methods, and then get the product through the prototype replication. The copied products have high precision, good strength and can meet the design requirements of various functions. It is suitable for trial production of small batch of functional parts, reducing the cost and risk of mold opening.
3: To determine the surface treatment of general hand board surface treatment includes electroplating, sandblasting, oil spraying, oxidation, wire drawing, etc., and the cost and time of different treatment effect will be greatly different, so it is the key to determine their own needs in advance. It should be noted that oxidation is only applicable to aluminum alloy handboards, and other materials can not be oxidized.
4: To determine the processing cost of sheet metal, rapid proofing cost only needs a little, so the whole calculation is the key to ensure your needs and budget, and select the corresponding sheet metal processing plant according to the actual situation. If your budget is sufficient, you can choose a large sheet metal processing plant, so the quality of customized sheet metal is guaranteed.
