What is Plastic Machining?

Plastic machining is a subtractive method of shaping and forming products by removing layers of material. This process is crucial for creating precision machined plastic parts, with the three most common techniques being turning, milling, and drilling.

Turning: In this technique, the material is rotated by a chuck while a tool is fed through the workpiece to remove material until the desired shape is achieved. Turning is typically performed using lathes, ensuring precise shaping.

Drilling: Here, the material is fixed to a table while a drill tool is rotated into the workpiece to create bores. Drilling is a straightforward process that can be done on both lathes and mills, making it versatile for various applications.

Milling: This technique involves fixing the material to a sliding table while a spindle equipped with cutting tools is raised and lowered to machine complex forms. Milling is performed using milling machines or machining centers, allowing for the creation of intricate and precise machined plastic parts.

Experts in Machining Difficult Materials

With Jaco Products, our experts have the ability to machine materials that most shops won’t touch. Reach out to us for a quote on any plastic materials you need machined.

Machining Delrin

Delrin plastic has a wide variety of uses, from gears to conveyor system parts. Delrin is a durable plastic that is resistant to moisture and chemicals. But Delrin doesn’t respond well to adhesives, which make bonding difficult. Delrin is a flammable plastic that can become deformed during machining if the heat is too high.

Machining Delrin, a thermoplastic, is different from machining thermoset plastics. Thermoplastics melt when heat is applied and thermosets remain set once they are formed. These specific intricacies must be understood to machine Delrin parts. Jaco Products has the knowledge and expertise to machine Delrin into the product you need.

Ultem Machining

Ultem plastic is a semi-transparent, high-strength plastic that can operate in high temperature environments. Some other advantages of Ultem are that it is conductive and food contact acceptable. Ultem processing costs are high, there are limited color options, and it requires high processing temperatures.

Peek Machining

PEEK plastic, or polyetheretherketone, is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic. It has low moisture intake, strength across various temperatures, and high chemical resistance. PEEK is expensive and not very resistant to UV light.

Nylon Machining

Jaco’s vast experience in nylon machining creates the ability to offer competitive pricing for CNC machined nylon parts. Jaco has the best plastic machining processes to speed up the traditional setup of machining plastic. Jaco’s methods decrease the number of setups by a significant amount.

Plastic Machining FAQs

Plastic machining refers to the process of cutting, shaping, or forming plastic materials into desired shapes, dimensions, and configurations using various machining techniques and tools. This process is used to create precision plastic parts and components for a wide range of industries and applications. Plastic machining techniques can include cutting, drilling, milling, turning, and more.

Yes, plastic can be CNC machined. CNC machining is a highly versatile manufacturing process that can be used to shape and cut a wide range of materials, including plastic.

Choose the appropriate plastic material based on the specific requirements of your project. Consider factors such as the type of plastic, its properties (e.g., hardness, temperature resistance), and the final application. Select the right cutting tools and tool materials suitable for the chosen plastic material. Carbide or high-speed steel (HSS) tools are commonly used for machining plastics. The choice of tools may depend on factors such as the plastic’s hardness, your desired surface finish, and the machining process.

Secure the plastic workpiece in place. Depending on the size and shape of the material, you can use various workholding methods, such as clamps, vises, fixtures, or vacuum chucks, to ensure stability during machining. Adjust the cutting speed and feed rate based on the plastic material you’re machining. Plastic materials have lower melting points than metals, so it’s essential to use lower cutting speeds to prevent excessive heat buildup and melting. Refer to manufacturer recommendations and machining handbooks for specific settings.

Unlike metals, plastic machining often requires minimal or no coolant. Excessive coolant can sometimes cause the plastic to melt or become gummy. However, effective chip control is crucial to prevent chips from interfering with the machining process. Execute the machining process, which may involve operations such as milling, turning, drilling, or routing, depending on your project’s needs.

Periodically check the workpiece for dimensional accuracy and surface finish. Make any necessary adjustments during the machining process to ensure the final part meets your specifications. After machining, remove any burrs, sharp edges, or unwanted material. Deburring can be done using hand tools or deburring machines. If a specific surface finish is required, use appropriate techniques such as polishing, sanding, or flame polishing to achieve the desired texture and appearance.

Delrin is a high-strength, machinable thermoplastic known for its excellent mechanical properties. It has high tensile strength, good stiffness, and is often used for parts requiring durability and wear resistance, such as gears, bushings, and mechanical components.
