Plastic CNC Machining

Plastic machining has a different set of critical factors to achieve consistent results. Do your suppliers provide what it takes?

  • Controlled machining temperatures of 68-72F?
    (just 10F higher machining temperaturs is up to .010 thermal growth)
  • Proprietary technique to achieve flat datum surfaces from uneven material.
  • Vacuum hold-down systems in CNC routers, mills and lathes
  • Plastic specific tooling for superior finish and faster speeds
  • High spindle speeds of 20,000 – 22,000 on mills and routers to shorter cycle times & improve finish
  • On site engineering company (Foresight Processing, LLC.)
    specializes on plastic chemical & mechanical equipment applications
  • Automated plastic annealing ovens that relieve material stresses and allow superior dimensional stability and tighter tolerances
