Plastics - Machined and Custom Punched

Plastics CNC Machining

Thermoset and thermoplastic materials for assemblies are fabricated to be used in the wet process, waste and water treatment, medical, textile, plating system, food and agriculture, marine and chemical treatment markets. Plastic materials can be softened or formed by heat and joined through the hot air welding process. The bond achieved can be as strong (90% or more) as the original material. Thermoplastic welding is usually performed on plastics with thicknesses of 1/16" or greater.

Polypropylene, polyethylene, polycarbonate, UHMW-PE, PVC and ABS materials lend themselves to hot air welding. Thermoplastic and thermoset components can be made to exacting specifications in production or prototype quantities.

Custom plastic punched components can be created from thermoplastic, thermoset, composites or other select nonmetallic materials. Actually, there are over 75 formulations from ABS to Zytel that are suited to machining and punching operations. CNC equipment is utilized for precise cutting, sawing, slitting, shearing, turning, drilling, boring, threading, milling, shaping, contouring and screw machining.

By combining dedicated in-house tooling with advanced EDM capabilities, Insulfab Plastics Inc. achieves exacting tolerances in plastic components for applications in the instrumentation, telecommunications, electronic, automotive and appliance industries. The company employs a proactive approach to quality with its process called "Quality Functional Deployment" along with identification and resolution of potential failure possibilities. Failure Mode and Effects Analysis are common methods applied.
