HSC Milling High-Performance Plastics

High-speed machining of plastics from PEEK to PVDF

One of the first known high-performance plastics was PTFE of Teflon® – an invention of the aerospace industry. Nowadays, we have many different high-performance plastics whose specialized properties have been adjusted for the respective application purposes. PEEK, PPS, PVDF, and many others have become indispensible for modern industries over the past few years. These materials are way more efficient when it comes to high temperatures, wear and tear, or exposure to radiation.
Parameterization and the ideal process window play a decisive role when processing high-performance plastics.

Each material needs individual optimization in terms of cutting speed, feed rate, cooling, and infeed. Without that, one would not be able to permanently meet high requirements in regards to tolerances, extreme precision, engineering fits, and high geometric dimensioning and tolerancing.
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 unconditionally rely on at any time, you have come to the right place. We would be more than happy to receive your request.

High-performance plastics are used in all industries

High-temperature ranges, mechanical engineering, medical technology, aviation, aerospace, electrical engineering, chemical industry, food industry, nuclear industry.

HSC milling of high-performance plastics – important details summarized

Processing of high-performance plastics takes place at KURIOS by means of cutting-edge multi-axis HSC milling systems and perfectly tuned process parameters. Furthermore, particularly critical materials need pretreatment as well as follow-up treatment to reduce internal stress, so that dimensional stability can be assured. Here, our years of experience and well-maintained knowledge database pay off. Our ERP system “KISS” perfectly supports us in this respect.
