Plastic Machining

Foresight (US) started as a specialty plastic machining facility bringing leading edge aerospace quality and process control to the machining of plastics. We continue to be a world leader in engineered plastic machining including materials such as: polypro, PVC, PET (Ertalyte), PPS (Techtron), Vespel, Torlon, Celazole, PPO (Noryl), Teflon, PFA, Delrin, Ultem, PEEK, G4, G10, G11 and many, more.

Our facility was specially constructed to manufacture higher quality non-metallic products. It has exact temperature control and low humidity, eliminating many of the primary causes of dimensional errors.

Machining processes for non-metallics differ greatly and we have developed specialized systems to achieve higher quality. We maintain our own plastic annealing oven to allow improved dimensional tolerance and mechanical stability. Our custom designed flatness and vacuum fixturing systems allow us generate flat parts from inherently unflat material.
