prototype model material

with the development of industrial society and the continuous improvement of living standards, people's desire for life products and innovation is also growing. So there are processing enterprises, mainly satisfied with the development of science and technology, people increasingly create new products came into being, to serve those enterprises in different fields such as design, development, manufacturing, etc, develop new products or improve existing products for them, and design new products. Give full cooperation and support in model production and model production to create each other's value and achieve a win-win situation.

The products of each enterprise are different, and the prototype models that need to be made are different, so it may also be different in making materials, however, the main processing materials include the following:

(1) ABS: it is widely used in the general product shell, with good dissolution strength, and can be subjected to surface metallized engineering, such as water plating and vacuum evaporation electroplating. The material specifications include plates and round bars.

(2)Either acrylic or plexiglass. It is a good transparent piece, making the best transparent material, and can be used in dyeing, electroplating, spraying, screen printing and other methods. The dissolution strength is acceptable, and the only fragile and fragile is its weakness, which is not suitable for use in fragile institutions such as card hooks.

(3) PP: translucent material, good impact resistance, excellent flexibility, can be applied to the production requirements of strict impact resistance conditions, such as automotive supplies, folding packaging boxes, etc.

(4) PC: materials with good strength, toughness and transparency, suitable for the production of Lens and fine structures. Glass fiber is also added to improve the steel and heat resistance of the plate, can be used to make parts that need to maintain high steel in high temperature environment.

(5) Aluminum and magnesium alloy: Light in quality and good in strength. It is a favorite material for consumer 3C. The disadvantage is that magnesium is flammable metal, environmental control is very important during machining, the risk of model making is high, and there are many mechanical processing projects after die casting during production, which is a high-cost application material.
