Rapid Prototyping
Already finished your design in china, need samples for testing or approval?
No problem, we can handle this. For each order of your, we always start the mass stamping production upon your approval of samples. Sometimes, if the schedule is not so tight and we already got the right material stocked, we may not charge you. Anyway, it depends on the total cost. We will try to offer you the parts at a reasonable price. Just send your original samples or drawings to us and we will see to the rest.

How can you do it?
For custom metal stamping parts in china, we use wire cutting or simple tooling. And for screw machine products & turned parts, we usually use traditional machining, metal stamping or on automatic screw machine with new tooling.

Does secondary operations and plating surface treatment apply for the parts?
Yes, valued added secondary processing is available. And heat treatment and plating is also applied.

How much time do you need to make prototypes or samples for me?
7-15 days, it depends on the workload and the complex of the parts. If the parts need secondary processing and surface treatment, it may take 3-7 days more.

Please specify the prototype or sample quantity you need for testing or approval when contacting us. Then we can calculate the charges and lead time for you.

Note: for custom metal stamping, as we do it by wire cutting or using simple metal stamping dies, the samples may not the same as your drawing show. And we will let your know the small differences before prototyping. Usually that kind of small differences won't exist in mass production with the the formal tooling completed.

Prototype Fabrication
NAGUALMETAL is your China based machine shop offering parts manufacturing for small prototype projects. Evaluating prototypes are crucial prior to mass manufacturing to ensure it meets specifications and provides the opportunity to correct any errors that may be present. Taking advantage of our high quality prototype manufacturing capability via CNC machining and China based facility will deliver a low cost solution.
Prototypes And Cost Savings in China
At prototype stage we can advise on improvements to the metal part to reduce future manufacturing costs. This involves looking at nesting of parts on the sheet, material yield and manufacturing techniques. It’s worth noting that each manufacturing facility have it’s own core strengths that deliver most cost efficient solution. We optimize product manufacturing requirements to match particular facility in China to achieve the best quality to price ratio on sheet metalwork China produces.


Subtractive Manufacturing  
Machining is any process in which a piece of raw material is cut into a desired final shape and size by a controlled material-removal process. These controlled material removal processes are today collectively known as subtractive manufacturing, which differs from processes of controlled material addition, which are known as additive manufacturing. Exactly what the “controlled” part of the definition implies can vary, but it almost always implies the use of machine tools (in addition to just power tools and hand tools).
CNC Machining is a process used in the manufacturing sector that involves the use of computers to control machine tools. Tools that can be controlled in this manner include lathes, mills, routers, and grinders. The CNC in CNC Machining stands for Computer Numerical Control.
There are many kinds of machining operations, each of which is capable of generating a certain part geometry and surface texture.
