Machining Plastics Offered

CNC plastics can be used for a range of parts from prototypes to engineering models to end-use components. While plastics can be hard to machine, oftentimes their lightweight and denseness paired with simple geometries may be more suitable to machining than 3D printing or injection molding. Many of the following materials are extremely durable with high fatigue resistance, inertness, and shock absorbance. Other plastics are general-use materials that are more easily machined and are therefore suitable for testing designs at a low cost, like ABS. Depending on the nature of your project, machined plastic may the best material for your custom parts. Explore our materials in depth below:
