Plastic Materials for CNC Machining

The Common Plastics Used for CNC Machinng at Beska

As a custom CNC machining manufacturer, we apply a variety of plastic materials to create components from low-volume prototyping to mass production. Here is a brief introduction to the properties and applications of the common plastic materials used in CNC machining for your reference: ABS, PC, PMMA, POM, Nylon, PEEK, and HDPE. If you need any guidance, the Beska team is glad to help you to select the best plastic for your machining project.

  • CNC Machined ABS Parts

ABS

If you are considering cost-effective thermoplastic to create plastic machined part, ABS is an ideal choice. The machined ABS components have a wide application in the industries of automotive, electronics, electrical, and mechanical engineering.

The advantages and applications of ABS:

  • Impact strength;
  • High heat resistance;
  • Machinability;
  • Easy bonding and weldability;
  • Low moisture absorption;
  • Cost-effective.

The applications of ABS machined components:dashboard, housings, handles, interior panelling, etc.

 

PC

The Advantages and applications of PC Machined Parts:

  • Tranparency;
  • High strength and stiffness;
  • High machinability;
  • Dimensional stability;
  • Impact strength.

The common applications of PC machined components are: car lights, seals, gaskets, housings, connectors, rollers, etc.

  • PC CNC Machined Parts
  • CNC Machined HDPE Parts

HDPE

You may have noticed the wide applications of HDPE machined components in the packaging industry. Alongside that, these parts also have a broad application in the many industries including automotive, electrical, and  construction.

The advantages of HDPE machined components:
