Customer was an America company specializing in designing products in home automation systems. It was the first time for customer to use Made in China for their products that used to be made in Japan or South Korea, so customer stressed importance of quality before rapid prototyping.
low volume CNC aluminum Project Difficulty:

The thin wall thickness 1.0 mm and big dimensions (L×W×H) 260×160×8 mm brought difficulty of keeping shape stability during CNC milling. Two aluminum fixtures were milled to assist the low volume CNC milling.
aluminum precision milled partsCNC milled parts. Total 15 cutting tools were used for the whole milling process. Cutting lines on outside surface were removed by hands sanding.
anodized aluminum partsThe sanded and anodized silver parts. The anodizing finishing provided better adhesion to other coatings, such as the Logo silk-screening ink.
The Logo and Text silk-screened parts. Hardening agent was mixed to the ink to ensure durable adhesion of the silk-screened ink to the parts.
