Parvalux has launched a solid machine prototyping service designed to ensure that a ‘proof of concept’ of a geared motor can be delivered to a customer within a very short lead time.

Acting as the customer’s design resource, the Parvalux engineering team quickly produces a detailed 3D model of the gearbox casing. The design is then sent to a dedicated four-axis CNC machine, which is used exclusively for prototyping. The machine allows a fully functional solid prototype to be produced in as little as two days.

According to Dr Martin Mathias, technical director, the new prototyping machine has already delivered a return on investment by reducing lead times for Parvalux customers.
