Prototyping is an essential part of a new product development, without it, the engineers or companies would have to spend much more time and cost to find out if their design is feasible and if the product will get popular in the market.
Back in the year 2016, while the company owner Mr. Xu was a mechanical engineer working for a startup company with great potential, with new product development scheduled almost every month, he had to deal with so many drawings of new product parts every day and had to outsource the parts from many metal fabrication shops or plastic prototype manufacturing companies.
However, there were many issues resulted from outsourcing, such as delayed deliveries or mistakenly produced dimensions, resulted from which his company’s product development schedule was largely affected, let alone the poor surface treatment of the parts he received, he had been struggling with dealing with such issues almost every single day.
After year around negotiations with various prototype manufacturing companies his company used and without seeing any improvement in their services, he was frustrated to see how the prototype manufacturing companies worked and how it affected their development schedules or delivery time. It wasn’t easy to find a real rapid prototyping company.
At that moment, by identifying the gap between what the engineers wanted and what the prototype manufacturing companies could accomplish, Mr. Xu decided to quit his day job as a mechanical engineer and started a cnc machining shop of his own. His goal was simple: to make prototype cnc machining parts right, and delivery them in time.
The idea was simple in concept but not so simple in execution, Mr. Xu was rich in mechanical engineering experience but he was in lack of production experience, luckily he found a partner who was a production manager in a cnc company and they started working together ever since. They started Minxin Industry with just 3 CNC machines and 4 staff, but they always deliver the fastest prototype cnc machining service in town.
