Models and prototypes
At the cutting edge of technology, MECANUMERIC is a supplier of industrial equipment for the manufacture of models and prototypes for numerous applications in a wide range of fields, from the automotive industry to plastics processing, as well as for the creation of architectural models.
The mass production of parts often requires a model or a prototype. These must be manufactured with the highest degree of precision and finish. CNC machines are ideally suited to the manufacture of models and prototypes with a high degree of precision, regardless of the material used: plastics, wood and various metals.
CNC machines for rapid prototyping
The manufacture of a mould or rapid prototyping in the automotive, aeronautical or nautical sectors requires the use of high-performance, precise and fast industrial tools such as 3- and 4-axis CNC milling machines. The CNC machines used for this type of production mill many materials such as aluminium, various composite materials, plastics with important and specific mechanical constraints and characteristics.
In the range of 3-axis digital milling machines, MECANUMERIC offers models such as MECAPLUS and Charly4U/2U for rapid mould and prototype machining in 2D and 3D. The manufacturing of rapid prototypes thanks to a numerical control strongly reduces the production time and also limits the risks of error and scrapping of parts during the manufacturing process.
Industrial equipment for the manufacture of phone covers
The shell of a mobile phone is put to the test. Its mass production is very demanding to ensure its solidity and functionality. The fine materials (mainly plastics) can be milled on a CNC milling machine, which is very precise and ensures a perfect result.
The manufacturing cost is an important criterion, hence the need to use a machine combining performance and quality/price for the manufacture of telephone shells. The MECAPRO model meets this requirement perfectly, just as the DMC II model is suitable for work on small formats.
Industrial tools for the manufacture of architectural models
The manufacture of architectural models can be carried out using a digital milling machine. Indeed, a CNC milling machine, such as the MECAEASY and DMC II models, has the capacity to mill different materials, including wood and plastic. It is particularly precise and can produce small and large parts with a very high degree of finish.
Computer-aided manufacturing using a numerical control system allows for fast and accurate work. The reduced production time results in lower production costs. The use of CNC allows a high degree of repeatability for series production.
