Plastic Machining And Manufacturing

CNC plastic machining comes in handy when non-printable materials are needed. With this technology, we can not only make plastic concept models and precise functional components but also provide complete solutions for the production needs of low-volume machining.
We are able to manufacture high-quality CNC plastic machined parts from over 30 different materials, use processes such as 5-axis CNC machining methods to create high-performance precision machining of engineering plastics. Our knowledge of plastic materials allows us to customize your CNC plastic parts according to your application’s requirements.

Why work with Elimold?

We are defined by precision. We work with extraordinary care from the moment you first call us to final delivery anywhere in the world. Whether you give us a well-crafted final drawing or an undeveloped concept, Elimold treats every project with the mission-critical care our clients demand.

Production-Quality Prototypes Done Right

When the success of a design depends on the accuracy of the prototype, a “close” part isn’t close enough. At Elimold, we ensure design fidelity through rigorous quality review. Through workmanship quality checks and FaroArm technology, we deliver prototypes that match your design intent. You can test your designs with confidence, knowing your parts are as true to the real world as they are.

Expert Approach to Part Optimization

Your design is brilliant. The prototype looks good. But will it be mass produced? With Elimold, there will be no surprises when it comes to production. We combine extensive advanced subtractive manufacturing expertise with proven design-to-manufacturing processes to ensure your prototype can be manufactured in the most cost-effective way possible. If there is a way to reduce costs, improve quality, or enhance transition to production, we will find it.

Why Choose CNC Plastic Over 3D Printing

  1. When designing parts using plastic materials such as PVC, POM, PEI, or PEEK, they can’t be printed using 3D processes. There are no reliable and affordable printing formulations of these plastics. But with plastic machining, you can design any type of plastic with ease according to the customer specifications.
  2. 3D printed specialty materials are typically more expensive and manufacturing costs are priced based on the amount of material used, which means larger parts or larger quantities of parts cost more, while CNC plastic is a more convenient and cost effective process.
  3. 3D printing processes leave a layer of marks on the plastic parts that can be difficult to remove. This is not suitable when creating concept models or functional prototypes that need a high-quality surface finish. We use milling processes to ensure that the part has a quality finish and is ready for use.
  4. Plastic CNC machining offers greater dimensional accuracy, and 5-axis CNC milling machines can help you tackle the most difficult manufacturing challenges by providing high precision machining of more complex parts.

Ready for production?

With Elimold, the transition from prototype to production is seamless. As a global manufacturer, we streamline the manufacturing process with a variety of cost-effective options that fit your needs. Diverse solutions for custom metal and plastic parts mean you can work with a single source for everything from production to delivery.
