Frequently Asked Questions
When it comes to CNC machining plastics versus traditional machining there are some key differences. The biggest difference is that CNC machining can be done on many different types of materials, whereas traditional machining is typically limited to metal materials. CNC machining is a computer-aided manufacturing process that uses computer software to control the motion of numeric controlled tools. This process can be used to create a variety of shapes and products from various materials.
There are a few ways to process plastics with CNC machines. The most common way is to use a rotary tool to cut or rout the plastic. This can be done with a simple end mill or a more complex router bit.The second way is to use a laser to cut the plastic. This method is often used for very detailed work or for cutting small pieces of plastic.The third way is to use a heat gun to soften the plastic and then use a punch or die to stamp out the desired shape. This method is often used for making small parts or components.
There are a variety of different plastics that can be machined with CNC technology. Acrylics, polycarbonates and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) are all common types of plastic that can be machined using this technology. Depending on the type of plastic, it may be necessary to use specific cutting tools or techniques when machining it with a CNC machine.
hen looking for a manufacturing process to produce plastic parts, there are many options to choose from. In some cases, CNC machining may be the best option. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of using this process:
