Plastics machining is a combination of different types of machining in plastic materials.
The methods of machining plastics are similar to those of metals machining, and the most common methods are turning and milling. This is usually performed when manufacturing low volumes or when fine tolerances are required. Otherwise, moulding is common for larger volumes.
There are plastic materials with many different properties. There have different appearances, electrical conductivity, hardness and resistance to heat and organic solvents.
Post project to suppliers with Machining, Plastics capabilities
This manufacturer of hydraulic equipment is currently at capacity and therefore, they require the assistance of a third party who can turn 12 different sizes of Nylon bushes on their behalf. 6 off of each size are required, with prompt responses also sought. Although this is a one-off requirement, there may be further opportunities to assist the buyer again in future, in accordance with capacity levels.
Plastic machining specialists are sought by a buyer who outsources over £600,000 worth of machining work each year. This chuck guard is to be machined from Delrin, ready for end use within food packaging machinery. This is a one-off requirement with an immediate order to place; however, owing the client's large machining spend, this could lead to additional work for the successful supplier.
Specialising in motorcycle chain oiling solutions, this company is seeking a machining partner to assist with production of the attached clamps. Consisting of two halves, these clamps are to be machined from RG1000, with quotes required for 50 and 100 off of each half for three different size variants. Moving forward, further orders will be placed, spelling repeat work for the supplier that the client selects.
This company operates within the pump & valve industry and has an order to place for 60,000 off plastic washers, to be delivered in bags containing 2,000 off of each. The client has confirmed once a suitable price and quality is proven, they will request an annual requirement with the same or similar quantities going forward, with scope for additional similar work to run alongside.
Machining of a selection of ABS components is required, by a manufacturer of carbon fibre products. This project involves elements of milling and drilling, with quotes required for 1 off and 50 off of each design. In addition to this enquiry, the chosen supplier will also be asked to assist within similar projects moving forward, meaning that there is a view to turning this buyer into a long-term customer.
This client is looking for a new supplier to machine the attached inners, made from white plastic, which will be used within gauges. Because they are a cosmetic part of the gauge, a clean finish of these inners is needed. Quotes are sought for 1500 off and 3000 off and will lead to repeat orders on an annual basis.
Quotes are sought for the attached bearings, which are to be made from various grades of plastic. The client - a manufacturer of consumer products who spends £50,000 annually on bespoke machined parts - is looking for the assistance of a supplier that is able to offer prompt and reliable delivery of the designs in question, to be turned, milled and drilled in accordance with the drawings attached. In turn, the client will look to place repeat orders with the company they select, making this an ideal opportunity to supplement your long-term customer portfolio.
Suppliers with the capacity to machine the attached coil clamps are sought, by a manufacturer of cast products that spends £100,000 per year on machined components. This design is to be machined from single, solid material and then cut in half to form two identical pieces. These clamps are destined for end use within the automotive industry, with two sets required at this time.
Machining of white acrylic parts is required, by a manufacturer of medical equipment that spends over £75,000 a year on outsourced manufacturing. The parts are to be made in accordance with the drawings provided. Ideally, the client would like to locate a supplier that can offer exemplary standards of manufacture, as well as a reliable delivery time of 3/4 weeks, as their current supplier is unable to adhere to the standards required. There will be an order to place shortly with the chosen vendor, once production is in fruition.
Suppliers who can lend accuracy and a high level of precision to the attached disc parts are sought, on behalf of a company that works within the offshore industry. These are new designs and the client would like to allocate manufacture for both the initial order and the ongoing production runs that follow. The parts in question are to be machined from polyurethane and as the buyer spends an impressive £300,000 a year on subcontract machining services, there could be scope for additional projects to run alongside this enquiry.
