There are many benefits of making Aluminum Alloy box prototype as follow：
First, you can test the appearance and construction of aluminum alloy prototype. You can make a few samples for testing before the new product start to be developed formally. Find the defect and improve it.
Second, attending the exhibition. You can display the prototype instead of real product on the business fair, through this you can promote your new product beforehand and search suggestion from potential customers, even get the advance orders.
Third, make prototype to take place of the real product. This prototype can realize the full function completely. We can sell these prototypes as a product directly.In the prototype industry, we usually adopt CNC machining to make aluminum prototype, in another word, using CNC machine to make it. The tolerance of prototype made by most of prototype manufactures is around 0.1mm, but TuoWei can reach up to between 0.01mm and 0.1mm because of advanced equipments and rich experience in high standard parts. The aluminum alloy box prototyping which involved in many process such as CNC milling, polishing, sand blasting and anodizing can be shown clearly
in the next picture.
CNC milling: under the instruction of program, CNC high-speed Drilling and tapping center cuts the spare materials as certain path and gets the original prototype. It is worth mentioning that the tolerance of CNC prototype is depended on equipment’s ability directly, we adopt the advanced CNC machine with tolerance reaches up to 0.05mm.
Handcraft: there are many work pieces and tool marks on the surface of prototype after machined by CNC. It needs to be engraved with sandpaper. When we are polishing it, we should use the bold sandpaper firstly, next small sandpaper step by step. To make the prototype looks smooth and exquisite.
Sand blasting: blasting a layer particular covering the box prototype to reduce the roughness and improve its abradability.
Anodizing: making the prototype have a oxidizing reaction on its surface, forming a layer membrane to protect it from scraping.
After the box prototype completed, it remains test in the end. The most of companies aren’t strict with this process, some even lack of it, which leading to some mistakes of prototype after it delivered. We use the advanced testing device—three dimension tester, with which we can get a exact result.
