Process: Machining, Plastics


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.
