What is Rapid Prototyping?

Rapid prototyping involves a group of manufacturing techniques that utilize 3D systems to quickly fabricate high-quality physical products. Without the need of building a mold, rapid prototyping creates parts in a much quicker time frame and at cheaper prices, saving clients’ money and time. rapid prototyping is used to create plastic prototypes and metal prototypes, which allows your design team to closely simulate the final product appearance and function, and also reflecting the validity of the physical dimension and the ease or complexity assembly work, and yet give the space to modify and optimize the design.

Rapid Prototyping Services

At Stebro Mold, we provide plastic rapid prototyping services and complete product development. These services including CNC machining, SLA plastic prototype , SLS plastic prototype, Vacuum Casting and Injection molding. While each provides its own benefits, knowing the inner workings of the technology, compatible materials and common applications will help you decide which rapid manufacturing technique is best suited for your plastic prototype parts.

  • SLA 3D Printing and SLS are two widely used 3D printing technologies for plastic parts.

  • CNC machining is a widely-used manufacturing process for plastic and metals. When your customers want a prototype in hand, give them the real thing. With our advanced prototype plastic CNC machining and turning, you get a production-ready part made with the actual material you spec, such as ABS, POM, PEEK, PC, PPS, PA, PMMA, Aluminum, Stainless Steel and brass. Compared to 3D printing, CNC machining offers more potential for threads and undercuts, tight tolerances, reduced size limitations, and more surface finishes. Parts are 100 percent functional and able to be mechanically tested. Depending on the complexity of the plastic prototype model and the manufacturing service used, CNC milling can also provide extremely quick turnaround times.

  • Vacuum Casting is a copying technique used for the production of small series of functional plastic parts. Using two-component polyurethanes and silicone molds, Vacuum Casting is known for its fast production of high-quality prototypes or end-use products. Silicone molding results in high-quality parts comparable to injection-molded components. This makes vacuum casted models especially suitable for fit and function testing, marketing purposes or a series of final parts in limited quantities. Vacuum Casting also lends itself well to a variety of finishing degrees, and we can match the finish you need for your parts.
