At JC Rapid, we specialize in the production of high-quality prototypes produced at a great price. With a range of technologies at our disposal, we are the perfect one stop shop for all your prototyping needs. When you’re ready, we also provide production manufacturing of 100,000+ parts. Learn more about the rapid prototyping process below or send your Milling-turned Machining design file to our international team of engineers for a free quote。
What is rapid prototyping?
Our rapid prototyping service is often used to produce a physical sample of a product design. It can be used to evaluate the form, fit and function of a part or to test out new and innovative idea.
Prototypes are often made quickly using cheaper and less robust materials. We produce “rapid” prototypes because many clients need to produce a physical part quickly in order to validate a design or to capture a fleeting sales opportunity.
Benefits Of Making A Prototype
- Show your customers and investors a model of your product
- Demonstrate the appearance, dimensions and features of your product
- Test your design for its suitability
- Save time and money by identifying and reducing design flaws
- Improve and streamline the production process
- Reduce your work load when the time comes to manufacture
- Create multiple versions with different colors, surface textures and finishing processes
CNC Machined Prototypes
CNC numerical is ideal for making rapid prototypes from plastics or metal and which look and feel like production made parts. They are able to achieve tighter tolerances with better surface finishes than other prototyping methods. Our machined prototypes have all the features needed to make a fully functional part, including tapped and threaded holes and precisely flat mating faces.
SLA & SLS Rapid Prototypes
SLA & SLS are two of the original Milling-turned Machining processes. These methods are ideal for making rapid, one-off prototypes in plastic. These prototypes can be used as-is, or to function as master patterns for our vacuum casting process. Like with other Milling-turned Machining additive manufacturing processes, you can add complex internal features that can’t be made using traditional plastic manufacturing.
Vacuum compounding shape
Vacuum compounding is a rapid prototyping technique suited for making up to 30 prototypes of a master pattern from a silicone rubber mold. The level of detail and surface finish of the copies is dependent on the quality of the master pattern. You choose the casting compound to match your design idea – hard or soft, colored or clear. We also offer over molding to combine two or more different types of material in a single finished vacuum casting. Our team of vacuum casting specialists are experts at preparing master samples for casting. Samples can be provided by you or we can make them using our CNC machining service or one of our Milling-turned Machining services such as DMLM, SLA or SLS.
From the model to the production
At the same time, the JC Rapid also focused on small batch manufacture, certain number of products processing and production methods can reach more than thousand pieces.Our service can accompany you from model stage to small batch manufacture until the final formal production.When you discuss with JC Rapid engineers for model manufacturing, also can at the same time Available for mass production，So that you can then realized through cooperation with JC Rapid and save a lot of cost.
The high quality
Model production requires a lot of manual processing.We hire and train a group of outstanding model of technical personnel, to provide you with perfect products.
The fast delivery
Everyday we struggling for managing production efficiency for reaching delivery time , and we indeed can fulfill quickly to make delivery to United States , Europe , Australia and around the worldwide with providing parts which can absolutely meet your quality requirement.
The product post-processing
By sanding, polishing, painting, printing, powder coating and other processes, to provide you with production quality as post-processing services.Even if you are in accordance with industry standard design, we can also do it.
