When the required quantity of aluminium prototype is between 100 pieces and 1000 pieces, the manufacturing cost will be very expensive if they are still manufactured according to the manufacturing technology of one piece prototype. If those aluminium prototypes are supposed to manufactured by mass production CNC machining manufacturers, they refuse to provide CNC machined aluminium service because small required quantity. Leecheer company specially sets up small amount groups for CNC machined aluminium. This working group is responsible for production of aluminium prototype ,management and control of surface treatment. The quality of aluminium prototype is recognized by clients.

Let’s analyze the machining technology of 1000 aluminium prototypes and the CNC machining technology to manufacture aluminium prototype with eight different colors.
Firstly, aluminium material which need to CNC machining are extruded into shape by the aluminum extrusion method. It can ensure that these 1000 aluminium prototype are in the same kind of material and avoid inconsistent anodized colors because of different material model number.

Secondly, the manufacturing of sucked fixtures can reach the purpose of quick dispatch and reduce time waste because of assembly and unassembly. After the finish of aluminium CNC machining, simple fixtures are manufactured to do brushing treatment on the surface of aluminium prototype. The anodizing of aluminium prototype should immediately follow the brushing technology, which can ensure its unoxidized surface and have different colors on their surfaces.

Finally, laser engraving is used to engrave the patterns provided by clients. All technologies to manufacture 1000 aluminium prototypes have been finished. All prototypes will be checked according to dimensional requirements and appearance requirements. If all requirements approve, they can be carefully packed and arranged shipping.

The reasons to choose Leecheer Prototype Company
The Video of quantity evaluation given by England customers
About delivery time,our company choose FedEx intl. Priority service for all prototype to ensure that customers can receive their prototype with the quickest way.
Below time table of FedEx is the shipping time from China to different countries.
1. How to clearly express the surface colors of prototypes?
When the prototype surface color is only needed to reach 80%-90% of specified color, you should just provide us the international Pantone color number, for example: 877C. If you need to reach over 90% of specified color, be sure to send us the plastic parts with sample colors. Because pictures might cause errors due to different monitors.
2. What should be clearly expressed about metal prototype manufacturing?
The dimensional accuracy and surface finish requirements of prototypes should be clearly specified. The two factors determine the price of prototype manufacturing.
3. What is the payment method of Leecheer?
When you chose Leecheer’s prototype manufacturing service, a deposit of 50% of contract amount should be paid to us. Then we will arrange production. After the completion of prototypes, we will take pictures of the prototypes and send them to you for review. If you have no problems and pay the remaining 50% of the contract amount, we will arrange shipment after receiving payment vouchers.
