CNC Turning High-Performance Plastics
CNC Turning of PEEK, PTFE, or PPSU – precision turned parts from Seevetal near Hamburg
It is very rare that classic clamping and machining parameters from metal-based jobs can be used for this group of plastics, which is why we need to consider every material’s unique characteristics. Relatively soft PTFE, for instance, requires that each clamping situation is thought through from scratch. Other plastics have abrasively acting additives, which complicates the selection of suitable machining tools or indexable inserts.
Machined processing of three-dimensional engineering plastics inside our Hermle C400.
5-axis milling technical plastics
Laser marking and laser engraving of various plastics is feasible in any font, shape, and variation.
Quality assurance of your components is continuously happening throughout the entire manufacturing process and the records are stored in our ERP system “KISS”. All production data is archived, so that any product is fully traceable and reproducible.
Our young and highly motivated team in the production area of machining is looking forward to your request regarding CNC turning of plastic. Feel free to contact us.
