AIXI's blog aims to share our hard earned knowledge on manufacturing and product development. We hope these articles help you to optimize your product design and better understand the world of rapid prototyping, rapid tooling, CNC machining, 3D printing and low-volume manufacturing.

CNC precision products, what does 3C electronic products mean?

3C products usually refer to computers, tablets, mobile phones, digital cameras, walkmans, electronic dictionaries, audio-visual playback hardware devices or digital audio players, etc. The so-called “3C products” are a combination of Computer, Communication, and Consumer Electronics, also known as “Information Appliances”. Because the volume of 3C products is generally not large, they often add a…

What is the working principle of CNC machining?

CNC machining, CNC machining refers to machining using CNC machining tools. CNC index-controlled machine tools are programmed and controlled by CNC machining languages, usually G codes. The CNC machining G code language tells the CNC machine tool what kind of Cartesian position coordinates the machining tool uses, and controls the tool’s feed speed and spindle…

What are the techniques for 3D printing model post-processing ?

1. Polishing and polishing Due to its special forming method, the 3D printed model will have a stepped layer on the surface of the model. These layered patterns are inevitable even for the finest printers currently available. Although we can adjust the parameters during layering or the placement of the model to make the layer…

3D printing gears: professional design skills and software suggestions

3D printing has many huge applications in mechanical engineering projects. But did you know that with 3D printing, you can produce sturdy and fully functional gears? So what are the advantages of using 3D printers to make gears? Today, we will provide you with professional tips about the design process, discuss 3D printing materials, and…

Stamping forming process-deep drawing

Deep drawing, also known as drawing or calendering, is a stamping processing method that uses a die to turn a flat blank obtained after punching into an open hollow part. The deep-drawing process can be used to make cylindrical, stepped, tapered, spherical, box-shaped and other irregular-shaped thin-walled parts. If combined with other stamping and forming…

Stamping forming process-bending

Plastic forming method for bending metal plates, pipes and profiles into a certain angle, curvature and shape. Bending is one of the main processes widely used in stamping parts production. The bending of metal materials is essentially an elastoplastic deformation process. After unloading, the workpiece will produce elastic recovery in the direction of deformation, called…
