Plastic Materials Of CNC Machining Process
ABS Common thermoplastic with mechanical properties, High impact resistance, good heat resistance, and easy machinability. It is a wide range of materials in the world.
PMMA is a transparent thermoplastic often used in sheet form as a lightweight or shatter-resistant alternative to glass. Its easy handling and processing, and low cost.
A thermoplastic polymer produced from the monomer ethylene. With a high strength-to-density ratio and lower stiffness compared to Polypropylene.
Nylon is an excellent engineering thermoplastic, with good mechanical properties and high chemical and abrasion resistance.
Remarkable chemical resistance, very low moisture uptake, good fire performance, excellent mechanical strength across a wide temperature range, and dimensional stability.
A thermoplastic with high toughness, good impact strength, and some grades are optically transparent. They are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed.
It is a white, hard thermoplastic polymer material and has a high chemical resistance. Its properties are similar to polyethylene, but slightly harder and more heat resistant.
PET is a rugged plastic, has good mechanical strength, and is wear-resistant. It is a clear, strong, and lightweight plastic belonging to the polyester family.
Why Plastic CNC machining?
Plastic processed parts are a good alternative to metal parts because they are lightweight, easy to process, and generally cheaper. Using CNC machining to produce plastic parts is still preferred by engineers and product teams because it is compatible with a wide range of plastics.
Plastic CNC machining Cost
The major factor in processing costs is the time it takes to machine the plastic. The length of time is a function of both the material and the design. Softer plastics like PEEK can be machined quickly, while harder plastics like UHMWPE take much longer. More intricate designs will also take longer to machine regardless of the material.

Frequently asked questions
Thermoset plastic and thermoplastic are two different types of plastic. Thermoset plastic is a type of plastic that cannot be melted and reformed. Once it has been molded, it will retain its shape. It can be used in CNC Machining. Thermoplastic is a type of plastic that can be melted and reformed. It is often used in injection molding.
The best plastic for CNC machining is dependent on the intended purpose of the final product. In general, softer plastics are easier to machine than harder plastics. However, harder plastics may be necessary for some applications. Some of the most common plastics used in CNC machining include:
1. Polyethylene (PE)
2. Polypropylene (PP)
3. Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)
4. Polycarbonate (PC)
5. Ultem (PEI)
CNC machining is a process of cutting and shaping material using computer-controlled machines. The process can be used on a variety of materials, including metal, plastic, and wood. CNC machining is often used to create prototypes and production parts for a variety of industries, including automotive, aerospace, and medical.
