CNC Prototyping: Rapid Prototyping Service

Our company NextProto is a leading supplier and manufacturer that offers a wide range of rapid prototyping services in China. The most commonly used technology here at NextProto is producing your rapid prototypes by CNC machining. CNC machining is a subtractive manufacturing method. We can make your parts from many kinds of hard plastics and metal such as ABS, stainless steel, aluminium alloy, brass, titanium, copper, zinc alloy, POM, PMMA, and PC. CNC machining or CNC prototyping in NextProto China is a very quick prototyping service. It is good for making 1 off prototype to low-medium production run in real engineering grade materials.

For small quantitiy volume prototypes in plastics or soft rubber, we can use RTV, also called vacuum casting process to duplicate multiple numbers of parts. We create the master piece by CNC milling or machining and then using silicone moulds to make your rubber or plastic parts. Each silicone mould is good for 15 to 20 shots of parts. The quality of part surface can be coloured and textured in-mould directly without secondary operation such as painting or polishing.


For low volume short term production run project, we would suggest to use our rapid tooling services in plastic injection molding, die casting for aluminium parts and investment casting for stainless steel/mild steel components. We would make the mould tool in tool steel such as P20 or NAK80 steel and ship the mouldings and casting parts to you within 3 weeks. We strive to deliver the best quality that you deserve from China within the shortest lead time, so that you can have the same delivery time as buying prototypes at your country. If you wish to get a quick project review for your project, please email your rapid prototyping requirements to sales@nextproto.com and one of our project engineers will get back to you ASAP.
