Why Machine Your Plastic Parts?

Updated: Jun 17

CNC Machining of parts is the best manufacturing choice when low to medium volume of plastic components is required. The process from idea to manufacturing can be very quick with the use of CNC Machining. Compared to injection molding, closer tolerances are possible and there is no long lead time to produce molds or tooling. Shorter lead times with machining means greater design flexibility, easily adjust components on successive orders.


Benefits of Machining:

  • Closer Tolerances Possible

  • Design Flexibility

  • Fast Turnaround Time

  • Low Quantity Required
