Metal Rapid Prototyping

The advantages of the Metal CNC rapid prototype can very accurately reflect the information in the drawings, and the surface finishing quality is very high. The use of metal prototyping services in the field of machine production because of the characteristics of Rapid Prototypes skill itself, has been widely used in the field of mechanical production and is mostly used in the production of single and small batch metal parts for metal prototype manufacturers. Some special messy parts, because only a single production, or less than 500 pieces of small-batch, generally they can be directly made by the rapid prototype with small batch production with low cost, short cycle. CNC Metal rapid prototyping can use Aluminum alloy, magnesium alloy, brass, stainless steel, and other processing materials. The surface finishing can be done the High Polishing, Grinding, Polishing, Sandblasting, Oxidation, Electroplating, Powder Coating, and Gas Hardened. Short-time gas nitriding, DLC, heat treatment, and so on.


Metal Rapid Prototyping Material Info

Aluminum Alloy

Aluminum alloy is one of the most widely used non-ferrous metal structural materials in the rapid prototype, and they has been widely used in aviation, aerospace, automobile, medical, rapid prototype  model. At present, Aluminum alloy is the most widely used alloy in rapid prototype. It has the advantages of easy processing and forming, good rigidity and rich anodize coloring.

Magnesium Alloy

light weight, good strength, is consumer 3C like to choose materials. The disadvantage is that magnesium is a flammable metal, and it is very important to control the environment during mechanical processing. The risk of model making is high. There are many mechanical processing projects after die-casting during production, and it is a high-cost applied material.



brass is composed of copper and zinc alloy, composed of copper and zinc brass is called ordinary brass, if it is composed of more than two kinds of elements of a variety of alloy is called special brass. Brass has strong wear resistance, brass in the hand model is often used to replace stainless steel and other difficult to carve and milling materials, through polishing electroplating surface effect and feel very close to stainless steel materials.



Steel are tensile strength, elastic modulus, plasticity, impact toughness, cold brittleness, hardness, cold bending, weld ability, heat treatment, cold working and aging.


Carbon steel, also known as carbon steel, is an iron carbon alloy with a carbon content (WC) of less than 2%. Carbon steel in addition to carbon generally also contains a small amount of silicon, manganese, sulfur, phosphorus. Carbon steel can be divided into carbon structural steel, carbon tool steel and free cutting structural steel according to its use. Carbon structural steel can be divided into building structural steel and machine – made structural steel.
