Westcut has implemented 3D milling software to support customer requirements.
Customers who have 3D software can send requirements in this format. From these files, we are then able to program the parameters for the milling directly from the 3D drawing and then download the information to the machine.
The benefit to the customer is a quicker processing time and reduced cost. Customers have taken advantage of this service for rapidly producing prototypes to allow for a complete range of tactile, functionality and strength tests to be quickly carried out.
This service has proved very cost effective as hard tooling and long lead times have been avoided, thus allowing a drastically reduced lead time from design to production volumes.
