Plastic Parts for Every Industries

By | CNC Machining
When Ordering Parts - Plastic Machining Is The Way To Go What is the difference between plastic injection molding and plastic machining? In some industries, precision is important but it is part of the overall equation: price, lead time, efficacy, and efficiency. This is true when manufacturers are making parts for toys and even electronic devices in massive quantities where volume is a large part of the equation. In some industries, however, it is crucial that components be as precise...

Plastics are Useful for Fluid Applications

By | CNC Machining
What About Metal? While metal fabrication can be very useful, plastic is supplanting metal in areas where the ultimate precision is needed. Compared to even plastic injection molding, machining allows intricacy, accuracy, and custom design more easily and cost effectively. An industry in which precision design plastics are especially useful is fluid handling. What applications are most common for machined plastic components? The most common are: Constant flow regulators Evaporative cooling towers, coolers, and condensers Filtration and water quality products...

Plastic Vs Metal

By | CNC Machining
Metal Fabrication has Been Around for Centuries Metal fabrication has been in practice in one form or another for centuries; blacksmithing, for example, has always involved fabrication. Metal does have a number of benefits for many industries, including very high heat resistance, endurance, and versatility.  As technology advances, plastic fabrication is providing an alternative to metal. Is it a viable alternative? What advantages does plastic offer your company that metal does not? Plastic Industry Has Grown Over the past 50...

Plastic Machining Benefits

By | CNC Machining
Plastic Machining Plastic machining has a host of benefits compared to the traditional metal machining or plastic molding. Industries across the board, from aerospace to automobiles, need to produce high quality components on time and on budget. The integration of plastic into each facet of the design and engineering process can help reduce weight and improve the efficiency and efficacy of your projects.   When Molding Cannot Provide When you need plastic components that require precision fabrication that molding cannot...

Plastics Cut Costs for Aerospace

By | CNC Machining
Faster, Lighter, Safer, Less Expensive. That is the guiding force behind every aspect of the aerospace industry, particularly engineering plastics. Plastic composites offer an ideal solution for engineers because they are solid, durable, and strong, yet retain lightweight properties that can cut both project and operation costs for the industry. Over the past 50 years, plastics, including Teflon® and other high performance polymers, have been replacing parts traditionally molded and machined from metals and other materials. Aluminum has been the...

3 Ways to Reduce Cost

By | CNC Machining
3 Ways to Reduce Cost Plastic components can be the key to making an effective, efficient product. It is in widespread use by many industries, including medical, aeronautics, defense, petrochemical, and oil drilling industries because of the precision it offers. Another very important factor in using plastic is the cost. While it may be the crucial to a successful product, it can also be the key to staying within budget – and even saving money. Here are three ways that...
