CNC turning of many types of technical plastics

Machining of plastics by CNC turning is one of our preferred production methods for the manufacture of bespoke technical and mechanical plastic parts.

By turning plastic, we can produce custom blanks, working from STEP files and drawings. Our CNC turning lathes allow us to make various machine components such as toothed wheels, flanges, rolls and drive arms.

 

Our machining workshop has capacity for both small and large production, as well as prototype production.

CNC turning of plastics

 

Processing plastics is a business that makes unique demands of the tools and methods employed. All our CNC lathes are specially adapted to turn plastic.

 

The greatest challenge in machining plastic is tension, which inevitably arises in the material.

 

To avoid this, tolerances must take account of expansion factors in the structure as well as water absorption. If this is not properly computed, the tensions make the plastic burst, crack or crumble.

 

When you order a plastic product from us, we assist you in the construction and choice of material, so that the end product will live up to your expectations.
