CNC Machining: Custom fabrication of plastic parts

What is CNC machining?

CNC machining or routing is the cutting, shaping, drilling, milling, and surfacing of materials using a computer controlled router or milling machine. Plastic can be cut, shaped, moulded with patterned router cutters, drilled, surfaced, contoured etc.
CNC panel2 CNC Machining: Custom fabrication of plastic partsGreyco Products High Speed Multi-Spindle Routers to produce the highest quality parts, maintaining tight tolerances for prototype to production runs in many materials, producing your parts on time and cost effectively.
We perform CNC routing for prototype, tooling, and production requirements with tight tolerances ranging from 0.05″ to 0.04.. 3-axis

CNC routers ensure high-speed automated routing in all types of plastics. Our CNC routing operations aid in producing complex shapes and designs with good dimensional stability.
2D as well as 3D cutting can be quickly set-up and programmed in our CNC routers. A 8 position automatic tool changer option in each router ensures concurrent, multiple routing operations. Plastics with thicknesses ranging from 0.060. to 6. can be handled in our CNC routers. Customer designs are accepted in DXF or CAD file formats. We also finish machined parts through sanding and polishing.

CAD Software

CAD software such as Alphacam and Solidworks is the language that the CNC router understands, and by which it is able to translate your concept into a beautiful finished product. We can use your own Solidworks files, or create them for you from just a rough paper sketch.alphacam logo1 CNC Machining: Custom fabrication of plastic partssolidworks logo CNC Machining: Custom fabrication of plastic parts

The applications for this type of high tech digital rendering equipment are seemingly endless. Some examples are domes, hemispheres, cylinders, cones, point of purchase displays, machine guards, shadow boxes, acrylic furniture, lighting panels, prototypes, trays, boxes, museum cases, windshields, aquariums pedestals and acrylic art.

The industries that are served by this type of technology make an equally impressive list. Aerospace, medical, military, food, agriculture, automotive,
industrial manufacture and transportation are just a few examples.

Materials

We work with virtually every type of plastic. Examples of materials that we machine with are mirrors2 CNC Machining: Custom fabrication of plastic partsacrylic, poly- carbonate, PETG, ABS, Styrene, PVC, HDPE, UHMW and DELRIN. There is really no what is possible.

To summarize the benefits of CNC machining, it is possible to cut complex shapes and designs that are impossible to create using analog machinery. CNC machines have the capacity to cut hundreds or even thousands of parts quickly – all exactly the same, and withing amazing tolerances. The parts that are produced have excellent dimension stability, and both the set up and programming are fast.

CNC panel saw2 CNC Machining: Custom fabrication of plastic partsAnother one of our favorite CNC machines is the panel saw. This hi tech beauty is fully computerized, and is the paradigm of efficient cutting. The saw kers are remarkable low, and it can handle sheets up to 5″ x 5′ x 10′.
