When people think about CNC (computer numerical control) milling machines, they often think of large, complex equipment that requires specialized knowledge to operate. For companies looking for CNC-milled prototypes, that has traditionally meant getting those prototypes from a third-party shop, or waiting for the in-house machine shop to fit the prototype order in between production runs.
But there is a whole class of desktop CNC machines made for rapid prototyping that can cut down both wait times and cost when it comes to prototyping. Product Development Inc. has put together an article and infographic explaining exactly how the line of Roland desktop prototyping CNC machines the company offers can eliminate many of the pain points involved in this process.
The Roland CNC machines, when combined with the company’s SRP Player software, work like 3D printers, with an automated, engineered workflow for fast, simple prototyping—and with little expertise required.
This means companies can avoid bothering their in-house machine shops, while reducing the wait times and cost associated with outsourcing. Product Development Inc. refers to this as fixtureless milling, and it enables companies to create prototypes using off-the-shelf materials.
