Today, many industries rely on industry-grade plastics because of their durability and affordability (compared to machining metal).
These advanced plastics offer a high degree of machinability and dimensional stability, though their relative softness can result in greater difficulty maintaining tight tolerances during (and after) machining.
We machine many common kinds of plastics including:
- Nylon 66
- PEI (Ultem)
At Plethora, we provide CNC Milling or CNC Turning in a wide variety of materials to fit all of your unique needs! We specialize in fast turnaround times for Just-In-Time (JIT) Manufacturing and Rapid Prototyping.If you don’t see the material you need or aren’t sure what to use for your project, please contact us and we can work with you to find the right material.
- Our maximum part size is 3″ diameter and 12″ length [76.2mm diameter and 304.8mm length]
- Our standard tolerance is ± 0.008″ [± 0.2mm] for plastics
- Minimum hole size is 0.032″ [0.81mm] in diameter
- Tighter tolerances are available, to ± 0.0005″ [± 0.01mm] depending on part geometry
