Precision in Polymers: Unveiling the World of CNC Machining Plastic

Plastic products play an important role in modern industry, involving various fields such as packaging, construction, automotive electronics, etc. In order to meet the needs of diversity and high quality, CNC machine tool processing technology is widely used in the production process of plastic products.

Advantages of CNC machine tool processing technology in plastic product manufacturing

1. High-precision processing: CNC machine tools can achieve micron-level precision processing, so they can produce plastic products with complex shapes and high precision. Compared with traditional machines, CNC machine tools can effectively reduce errors in manufacturing,

2. Diversified processing: CNC machine tools have a variety of processing methods, such as milling, turning, drilling, etc., which can meet the processing needs of different plastic products. It can adapt to various shapes and sizes of plastic products by changing the tool and adjusting the program

3. Flexibility and programmability: CNC machine tools can adapt to the processing requirements of different plastic products by changing the program, without spending a lot of time and resources on mechanical adjustments. This flexibility not only improves production efficiency but also reduces production costs

4. Automated operation: CNC machine tools can automatically perform processing operations through programming control without manual intervention, reducing the impact of human factors on product quality. This makes the production process more stable and reliable.

As one of the three major synthetic materials, plastic has the advantages of light weight, good impact resistance, good transparency, wear resistance, and good insulation. It is a key material for human society to save resources and recycle now and in the future. Various products made of plastics have been widely used in various industries of the national economy and various fields of people's lives. At the same time, with the further development of trends such as replacing steel with plastic and replacing wood with plastic, plastics are widely used in various fields of the national economy such as aerospace, transportation, medical care, home appliances, building materials, environmental protection, and packaging. Since all plastic raw materials need to be processed and manufactured by plastic molding equipment, the plastic machinery industry is the "industrial mother machine" for processing polymer materials and an important part of advanced manufacturing.

Rapid Plastic Machining& Prototyping

CNC machining prototype model is a three-dimensional information data management model formed on the computer by comprehensively utilizing advanced science and technology such as computer network-aided teaching design (CAD), computer system-aided manufacturing (CAM), and computer-based digital economic control (CNC). It is made by cutting and excavating a whole piece of material. It is characterized by fast processing speed, low cost, and can achieve high processing accuracy requirements. Moreover, these materials can be selected and used in a wide range, which can ensure the consistency of the materials of the prototype model and the structural materials of the mass-produced parts. Handmade boards have a strong sense of reality and the surface quality can reach a very high level. After finishing, polishing, sandblasting, painting, screen printing, UV, electroplating and other subsequent processing by Flourish legend engineers, the production effect can be completely comparable to mold products, or even higher. Since CNC processing companies need to do it one by one, it is suitable for small batch production.

Plastic Fantastic: CNC Plastic Materials Optimized for CNC Plastic Manufacturing

CNC Machining ABS

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is a thermoplastic polymer known for its excellent balance of material properties. It has good toughness and chemical resistance, as well as a range of other customizable properties, depending on the additives included in the plastic's chemical formula. Machining ABS plastic is made from a mixture of three monomer components: acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene, as well as any other required additives. The ABS plastic raw material can then be melted and reshaped using injection molding, extrusion or 3D printing.

Precision machined ABS is an excellent choice for parts with stringent quality requirements and tight tolerances.

CNC Machining POM (Delrin/Acetal)

POM is an engineering thermoplastic with a variety of beneficial properties. Some of its properties include excellent hardness, strength, and stiffness. Although it can be made in a variety of colors, its high crystallinity gives it a natural opaque white appearance. The density of POM is between 1.410 and 1.420 g/cm3.

POM plastic is often used to manufacture precision parts that require dimensional stability, high stiffness and low friction. This low friction makes CNC POM ideal for rotating or sliding components such as sleeves, bearings and gears.

Like many other synthetic POM polymers, POM is manufactured by multiple chemical companies with slightly different formulations and sold under many brand names such as Celcon, Tenac, Duracon, and others.

CNC Machining MC Nylon

MC nylon is also called cast nylon. It is made by melting the raw material caprolactam monomer C6H11NO under normal pressure, using alkaline substances as catalysts, and activators and other auxiliaries to form monomers to be polymerized, which are directly injected into preheated When the material is placed in a mold at a certain temperature, the material undergoes a rapid polymerization reaction in the mold and condenses into a tough solid embryo, which is then processed by relevant processes to obtain the predetermined product. As one of the engineering plastics, MC nylon material products "replace steel with plastic and have excellent performance" and are extremely versatile. It has many unique properties such as light weight, high strength, self-lubrication, wear resistance, anti-corrosion, insulation, etc. It is a widely used engineering plastic and can be found in almost all industrial fields.

CNC Machining PEEK

CNC machining PEEK is easy to machine, and CNC PEEK machining services are an excellent solution for producing high-quality PEEK parts with electrical and thermal insulation, among other benefits. Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic polymer used in engineering applications that exhibits excellent mechanical and chemical resistance at elevated temperatures.
