Machine shops, such as SCJ Machine, utilize CNC machining operations to prototype parts. CNC machining is preferable for parts that need to function as the final component when strength, mechanical stability, and precision are required. A machine shop well-versed in prototype machining is a perfect fit for final production runs due to their familiarity with the component design and specifics of the individual part, ultimately leading to a better end-use product.
The biggest advantage to CNC machine shop prototyping is the ability to clarify issues prior to production. A prototype provides a tangible object, revealing certain complexities that are often unable to be determined from a drawing. In turn, this can reduce or eliminate future production issues and expensive and time-consuming program modifications during production, keeping precision machining costs to a minimum. Other advantages include:
