Rapid Low Volume Aluminum Prototypes

Project Overview:

Low Volume Prototyping Process: CNC Machining
Prototype Material: Aluminum 6061-T6
Surface Finishing: Sanding, Beadblasting, Anodizing, Silk-screening
Quantity: 50 Units
Lead Time: 20 Days

Customer was an industrial design company in Spain and specialized in developing products in telecommunication. These prototypes were also end products to test market and were updated timely according to market feedback, so it was low volume manufactured quickly & economically.
