CNC Machining

    There are important differences between machining metal and plastic. An initial step is recognizing that plastic parts do not have to be molded. Tolerance levels in machining plastic are 0.001". CNC turning and milling are the primary operations. Sawing, drilling, routing, stamping, welding, bonding, polishing, screening and assembly are also essential to the production of machined plastic parts.
