It is realized using CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machines. They are programmable and ensure that production of plastic parts it took place automatically, based on the entered proposals and parameters. CNC plastic machining is used in the production of plastic parts for various industries. We can mention the automotive, aviation, medical or electrotechnical industries. CNC machines are able to carve and grind, but also mill or drill different shapes and sizes of plastic parts according to specific customer requirements.
In CNC machining of plastics, we usually use different types of plastics such as PVC, polystyrene, polycarbonate, polyethylene, polyurethane, etc. The choice of plastic depends primarily on the required properties of the part, such as strength, flexibility, resistance to chemical and thermal stress, as well as other factors (depending on the type of parts, their planned use, etc.). CNC plastic machining offers high precision and repeatability of production, which means that the final plastic parts are of amazing quality and have the same dimensions and other parameters as other manufactured parts within the series. This significantly reduces production errors and enables the manufacturer to achieve high efficiency and productivity.
Turning is a process where production of plastic parts realized using a lathe. It is a special machining machine that can rotate parts around its axis and at the same time it is possible to apply various tools for machining the material.
Different types of plastics such as PVC, polystyrene, polycarbonate, polyethylene, polyurethane and many others are used in plastic turning. The choice of a particular plastic depends on the required properties of the plastic part – strength, flexibility, resistance to chemical and thermal stress, etc.
Plastic turning is mainly used in the production of plastic parts for various industries, such as the automotive industry, the aerospace industry, the medical industry, the electrical industry, etc. The production of plastic parts is characterized by incredibly high precision and repeatability thanks to plastic turning. This means that the resulting parts are of high quality and are identical to other manufactured plastic parts from a particular series. Thanks to this, errors in production are eliminated, which leads to the achievement of high efficiency and productivity.
Production of plastic parts is possible by a combination of the mentioned technologies, or by modifying them according to the specific requirements placed on the production of specific parts.
