In the past, the traditional part forming method used a variety of mechanical processing machines not only required a high level of mechanics, but also costly, long manufacturing cycle, and could not adapt to new product updates. In order to overcome the above problems, rapid prototyping manufacturing technology and corresponding rapid prototyping machines have been successfully developed in recent years. This greatly reduces the time and cost of pre-development of new products.
Rapid prototyping technology benefits the following four aspects:
When designing a product, it is usually divided into conceptual design and detailed design. Sometimes it is difficult to consider the structure, shape and size of the problem in a short period of time, and to optimize the results, not only time-consuming and laborious, but often inevitable omissions, resulting in rework. The rapid model uses rapid prototyping technology, which allows the designer to get real product samples at the initial stage of the design, and can quickly modify, redo samples, and even make prototypes and a small number of products at different stages. According to this, judge various problems. This creates a good design environment for the designer, and can get optimization results as soon as possible without having to think and modify it many times. Therefore, rapid prototyping technology is a powerful means to truly achieve parallel design.
In the initial stage of product design, the manufacturer can also get real product samples, even prototypes and a small number of products, which enables them to give early advice on product design, raw materials, standard parts, and external processing. Preparation, processing and mass production of molds and other preparations to minimize errors and rework, greatly reducing labor hours, reducing processing costs and improving product quality.
In the initial stage of product design, the salesman can also get product samples and even a small number of products, which enables them to publicize, solicit opinions and make accurate market demand forecasts based on this early and actual, rather than just relying on An abstract product description or a drawing, a sample to promote. Therefore, the application of rapid prototyping technology can significantly reduce the sales risk and cost of new products, greatly reducing their time to market and improving their competitiveness.
In the initial stage of product design, users can also see product samples and even a small number of products, which enables them to get to know the product early, deeply, conduct necessary tests, and put forward relevant opinions so that in the shortest possible time, Get the best performance products at a reasonable price.
In summary, rapid prototyping technology will certainly be able to shoulder the heavy responsibility of the rapid development of the manufacturing industry in the 21st century, providing a continuous supply of power for modern manufacturing.
