5-Axis Milling High-Performance Plastics

Milling of PEEK, PAI, and PPSU

Contrary to conventional 3-axis milling, 5-axis simultaneous milling provides us with two additional axes, which enables us to mill three-dimensional contours. Handling five axes simultaneously interpolated is highly demanding in terms of programming. We make use of these possibilities and thus are able to offer you all the creative freedom you might need for your designs.
 
That way small-scale or large-scale production of high-quality components in virtually any shape is feasible in a timely manner. Multiple processing systems, alternative production processes, and distributed manufacturing ensure reliable supply to you and your customers are at all times.

Thermoplastic and thermosetting materials need to be tempered properly before, during, and after the production process, in order that all tolerances can be taken into account in dependence to the respective coefficient of thermal expansion. Heat compensated machine tools and temperature-controlled storage and production rooms are necessary to meet these requirements.
 
Quality assurance of your components is continuously happening throughout the entire manufacturing process and the records are stored in our ERP system “KISS”.
 
So, if you are looking for a service provider to rely on at any time, you have come to the right place. We would be more than happy to receive your request.
