What type of plastic we work with:
- POM (Acetal)
- PTFE (Teflon)
It is not the whole list. Manufacturers of plastic are constantly adding some new and new items to the market. Our equipment enables efficient work with any of them.
Parts from plastic
Plastic is a very light material which is easy to work with. It does not corrode and the price for this type of material is also pretty good.
On the other side, this material itself wears out quickly and is inferior to other characteristics of the metal.
For the production of plastic parts we usually use casting technology. However, in some cases, it is worth choosing CNC turning and milling services. For example, it makes the most sense when working with a small batch of components or when the parts have a very complex shape and cannot be produced by casting.
Luckily we have a lot of experience of working with products that had a very complex configuration and required high-precision processing, so you can trust us with any kind of such request.

What to keep in mind when designing plastic products
First of all, you should consider the characteristics of strength and durability. They can vary in different types of plastics. This is especially important in movable mechanisms, where the parts often intersect with each other, and different strength values can make one of them wear out quickly. Be aware that this may damage the mechanism.
The thing is that plastic parts are often used in the food industry. But sometimes project engineers forget to check whether their chosen material meets the sanitary and hygienic standards adopted in certain countries. Such a mistake can have a number of unpleasant and even dangerous consequences.
Advantages of plastics over other materials
- Price – plastics are cheaper, even than cast iron.
- Resistance to aggressive substances.
- Ease of processing – working with plastic is quite easy, if you compare it to other materials. Processing time is reduced, the tool does not wear as much while processing metals.
