About CncProtos:Your one stop resource for machining one-off prototype or batch production components is powered by an Australian based privately owned company Arptech Pty Ltd based in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. website isabout cncprotos and arptech specifically developed for providing comprehensive information related to cnc machining service. Arptech is renowned for making high-end prototypes crafted in a wide range of engineering materials. Over the last decade, we have produced thousands of high quality functional and aesthetic prototypes for the purpose of engineering verification, design concepts, sales and short run production.

Our Goal is to continue supplying affordable quality prototypes, which contain the functionality of production intent. Our business model is based upon providing cost effective solution to our customers, which allows us to deliver technically superior solutions at lower cost. Our biggest asset is our customer base which has grown through word-of-mouth to include customers from around the world; from independent inventor designer to large Automotive, Medical, Household Appliance to Aerospace companies.

Arptech provides one stop solution for major Rapid prototyping services including:

  • CNC Machining - Suitable for functional and smooth finished accurate parts directly machined out of engineering plastics, ferrous or non ferrous metals.
  • 3D Printing - Suitable for initial conceptual design, form fit and light testing purpose. Quick, cheap and fast turnaround (typical delivery in couple of days)
  • FDM- Fused Deposition Modelling - is layered additive manufacturing process commonly applied to form, fit, function analysis and concept visualisation.
  • SLA - Stereolithography - provides great accuracy with an excellent surface finish suitable for aesthetic visual presentation models with fine detail.
  • Vacuum Casting - Suitable for small to medium quantity parts produced out of of Polyurethane resin closely mimicing Thermoplastics or Rubber parts.
  • Rapid Tooling - Also known as Bridge Tooling, suitable for short to medium run injection moulding out of various grades of Thermoplastics.
  • Architectural Modelling - Suitable for making Architectural building models, direct from 3D CAD files, using various RP technologies and materials.

Common Rapid Prototyping Materials:

ABS: Suitable for general purpose plastic prototyping with smooth finish.
PC (Polycarbonate): Strong and robust prototypes in clear or translucent finish.
PP (PolyPropylene): Good for Clips and snap featured prototypes.
ACRYLIC (PMMA): Good for clear fully transparent prototypes like Glass.
NYLON (PA6): Excellent abrasion resistance, good for Gears, Bearings.
ACETAL (DELRIN): Excellent durability, Self-lubricant, Good stiffness.
