Precision Plastics Machining

Plastic materials are lightweight, cost-effective, readily available, and typically easy to machine. These characteristics make plastics a popular choice for machining custom precision components. If you are planning a low-volume production run, anticipate design alterations, or need to manufacture precision parts to meet exact specifications, CNC machining is an excellent fit for your plastics application.

Marver Med is your top source for high-quality precision plastics machining. We have the hands-on experience and engineering resources to meet even the strictest plastics machining requirements, producing custom machined parts that perform at a high level. Our process-focused approach achieves the best results for every order while staying within your budget.

Plastic Materials for Precision CNC Machining

With so many different plastic materials available for CNC machining, choosing the best one for your application can be challenging. Our highly trained team of expert technicians will work closely with you to ensure you select the best plastic for CNC machining your precision component.

Delrin® Acetal Machining

Also known as polyoxymethylene, polyacetal, or acetal, name-brand Delrin is a low-cost option with a wide operational temperature range. Delrin is a popular choice for manufacturing many precision components as it is relatively soft but retains stiffness during CNC machining. Machining Delrin plastic is often used to produce:

  • Gears
  • Safety restraints
  • Medical devices.

Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) Machining

UHMWPE features an outstanding resistance to abrasion, high impact strength, and a low coefficient of friction. Chemically inert and cost-effective, UHMWPE satisfies FDA and USDA guidelines for direct food contact. Machining UHMWPE plastic is a straightforward process and is often used to create:

  • Food and beverage device components
  • Medical Implants
  • Medical Device Components

Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) Machining

One of the most ubiquitous and versatile plastic machining choices, PEEK produces precision parts that stand up to high temperatures and harsh environments. PEEK is available in different grades to meet the needs of industrial, medical, or chemical process applications. Other uses include:

  • Automotive parts
  • Medical devices
  • Aerospace components.
