CNC Turning Engineering Plastics

CNC turning of PE, PA, POM, etc. – everything from a single source

KURIOS Laserprodukt GmbH processes plastics in all variations. Expanding our range of services by adding a state-of-the-art CNC lathe enables us to respond even quicker to customer needs.
From simple plastic studs to highly complex components, we are constantly looking for solutions to meet the challenges each engineering plastic and its properties come with. For example, we need to start from scratch every time the clamping situation of a relatively soft plastic is thought through. Other plastics produce long chips that must be dealt with accordingly in order to ensure an unhindered machining process.

Your product’s contours can be programmed offline by using latest CAD/CAM technology (e.g.: SolidWorks) or SIEMENS SinuTrain. Usually, most of the simple turning jobs are programmed directly at the machine by means of ShopTurn.
Quality assurance of your components is continuously happening throughout the entire manufacturing process and the records are stored in our ERP system “KISS”. All turning data is archived, so that any product is fully traceable and reproducible.
Our young and highly motivated team in Seevetal near Hamburg is looking forward to your request regarding CNC turning of plastic. Please contact us.

Application fields of turned parts

Much like milled components, turned parts are required in every sector, for instance mechanical engineering, medical technology, food industry, plant engineering, chemical industry, electrical engineering, etc.
