Our state-of-the-art CNC machining tools and experienced engineers are your gateway to high-quality components, rapid prototypes, and innovative solutions across diverse industries.
An Important Tool In Prototyping
There are many situations where CNC Machining is still the best approach to creating a 3D model prototype. Whether your material of choice is not available via 3D printing or machining is still the best for timing and/or cost constraints; MNL’s technology consultants will advise your best solution.
The Synergy of CNC Machining and 3D Printing:
In some cases, combining CNC machining and 3D printing unlocks the ultimate prototyping recipe. For instance:
3D print a rough model for initial concept testing, then refine it with CNC machining for a more robust and accurate prototype.
Utilise 3D printing for intricate organic shapes, while relying on CNC machining for high-precision mechanical components.
