Sometimes it is not practical to mould components, for example, volumes are very low, the form is complex, wall sections are very thick, or components are very large. In these instances, machining components from solid plastic, or fabricating a solution by joining several individual items, can be the best option.
Machining engineering grades of plastic using CNC lathes, milling equipment, routers, and laser cutters can rapidly produce complex components with difficult to mould features, such as internal threads.
Large and heavy items can be fabricated by invisibly bonding components such as laser cut acrylic or Perspex sheet.
Example products include display units, tanks and very low volume parts.
