CNC Case Study – Yellow Robot
CNC Machining Prototype & Assembly
PROJECT – produce over 70 individual CNC machined parts in 2 weeks and assemble before shipping the robot and controller to client.
ISSUE – During review of the parts our engineering team discovered that a few parts would interfere with each other during assembly.
SOLUTION – Pointed out issues to client who re-drew the parts before HLH started production.
RESULT – Parts produced, assembled and shipped on-time with no further issues. Client sent Thank You letter.

This was a fun project to work on and an intense one. Between the robot, the controller and a few extra parts this project had over 70 parts. The majority of which had to be assembled together and work together as movable parts.
When you are producing 4 or 5 parts to be assembled together for one finished prototype and the tolerance of a part is off a bit it is not a big crisis as normally that single part can be quickly fixed.
But with over 70 parts and a production time line that was tight, our tolerance needed to be spot on.
SERVICES: Prototype CNC Machining
QUANTITY: 1 (over 70 parts)
MATERIALS: ABS + PEEK + PA
FINISHING: Hand Sanding + Painting
LEAD TIME: 15 Days
The other key point with larger assebled products is don’t be cheap on packaging. Projects are not complete until the client has safely received the shipment and confirmed that everything is OK.
