We all know the importance of prototyping in today’s manufacturing world.Prototyping can not only help us verify the mechanism and functionality of the product, but also help us save a lot of money on mold.So today we’re going to look at some of the techniques that go into making a Robot prototype.
Different robots have different properties, for example, some robots are mainly made of plastic structure, the robot shell is generally made of plastic materials for robot prototype.The prototype has very little metal support, only a few circuit boards attached to the robot.So for these plastic shell based robot, as long as the CNC machining prototype.With the development of 3D printing technology, more and more robot prototypes are completed by 3D printing technology.
In industrial inspection robot prototypes and small to medium batches, users also prefer to use embedded devices with real-time operating systems.The robot prototype can help manufacturing engineers and system integrators to quickly build high-speed real-time robots for product classification, assembly verification, packaging inspection and other applications.
Finished the robot prototype, about a few sets, preliminary inspection of the product appearance and structure prototype design.If the test is OK, it should be further put into the market.Through 3d printing, the robot hand board can be quickly produced. The main materials of 3d printing technology are photosensitive resin and nylon materials, which have great advantages for manufacturing the plastic structure prototype of the robot.
At present, the prototype of the small-batch robot with plastic appearance USES the silicone mold technology.The compound mold can be made with materials like ABS and PMMA.And then you’re polishing, you’re spraying.Until the finished product is shipped as required.If it is metal based robot small batch.Basically it is machine add give priority to, about 20 to a few thousand about.
