All FAQ List

  • Q What is the tooling life for rapid tooling?

    Normally, aluminum molds are good enough for +/- 1,000 shots, while Steel P20 molds can last for +/- 10,000 shots.
  • Q How fast can I get the moldings?

    This depends on the size and geometry of the parts. For a common open and shut mold with regular size part such as 300 x 300 x 50 mm, fabrication of tools and moldings can be done within 2 weeks.
  • Q Why should I use rapid tooling/injection molding?

    Injection molding is better suited to support larger amounts of samples for functional or market testing, bridge tooling, or low-volume production. If you need parts before a steel tool can be made (typically 6 to 10 weeks with other molders) or your volume requirements don't justify expensive steel production tooling, we can supply production parts to meet your full requirements (up to 10,000+ parts) in 1 to 15 days.
  • Q How Long Will Jucheng Precision Prototypes keep the Silicon Mold?

    Silicion molds tend to deform after being kept for a long time, so we will keep them 30 days and then we will dispose them.
  • Q What is the mold life for a silicon mold?

    The service time of the silicone mold is directly related to the complexity of the casting part. Generally, it outputs 12-15 pieces before degradation. If the structure of the part is simple, one mold might be able to cast 20 parts; while if the part requires high quality such as the clear complicated part, one mold can only make 12 or even 10 casting parts.
  • Q Can I use my own master model for making duplicate copies for vacuum casting or CNC machining?

    Yes, master models are used to create silicone molds for vacuum casting and can be made from any rigid solid that can withstand heat up to 100° C. Models used for CNC machining will be 3D scanned to create a CAD/CAM program for production.And attention for the transportation of your masters.
  • Q When should I choose Vacuum Casting Services?

    Vacuum casting is a method for making high quality prototypes or low volumes of parts formed from inexpensive silicone molds. Copies made in this way show great surface detail and fidelity to the original pattern.
  • Q Why it is important to have a quality standard master?

    The quality of the casting parts is determined by the quality of master pattern.When the requirement of a client comes to high tolerance, glossy finish or even optically clear parts, the master pattern will be manufactured with CNC machine which is characterized with high specification precision machining and high-quality surface finish.In the meantime, we also can paint parts surface for texture or satin effect to simulate the final mold texture of the product. The silicone molds will copy the details and textures from the original master, so the casting parts will come out the same as the master without any extra finish on the surface.
  • Q When should I use machining versus injection molding?

    ⦁ Before making the investment to have injection-mold tooling made or high-volume machining processes, you likely will want to test a part that is as close to the production part as possible. CNC machining is the best option for this situation.
    ⦁ Additionally, engineers often need just one or maybe a few parts for test fixtures, assembly jigs, or assembly fixtures. Machining is the best option here as well, but traditional machine shops often charge a significant non-recurring engineering (NRE) charge for programming and fixturing. This NRE charge often makes getting very small quantities not affordable. The automated CNC machining process eliminates the upfront NRE costs and is able to offer quantities as low as one part at an affordable price and get parts in your hands in as fast as 1 day.
  • Q Can Jucheng Precision provide optical quality on my plastic parts?

    Yes. We combine the machining capabilities of the best combined 3-axis, 4-axis or even 5-axis CNC milling machines. We also have adopted the latest diamond machining technology in ultra-precision manufacturing. This is a technique called Single Point Diamond Machining (SPDM or SPDT) that can match the ability of 5-axis micro-milling to produce a range of lens and light guides types of excellent optical quality in an array or freeform pattern. With the rich polishing experience, we can get amazing appearance on both inside and outside of the parts, providing fully support to clear and optical prototype development projects.
  • Q Can I order just one piece?

    Yes, of course you can, there is no minimum quantity at Jucheng Precision Prototypes, we will recommend you with the most suitable and effective manufacturing solutions based on your quantities.
  • Q What are the minimum and maximum dimensions you can machine?

    At Jucheng Precision Prototypes, we offer CNC milling (​​3-axis, 3+2-axis and 5-axis) and turning. Milled parts can be machined up to 1800mm*1200mm *500 mm (70.8* 47.2*19.6 in.)for 3/3+2 axis CNC milling. For 5-axis milling, the maximum part size is 650 x 650 x 300 mm (25.5 x 25.5 x 11.8 in.). If you accept splitting, there is no dimension limit.
    The maximum diameter for CNC turning is 431mm (17 in.), length 990 mm (39 in). Minimum part dimensions recommended are around 0.39 x 0.39 x 0.39 in. (10 x 10 x 10mm).The minimum for feature dimensions is 0.5 mm.
