Our CNC machining services deliver highly accurate, precision plastic fabrication. Our versatile AXYZ CNC Routers handle the widest range of tooling and application options in the industry.
Our versatile AZYZ International CNC Routers accommodate materials in excess of 4’ wide and virtually any length. They handle thick substrates and provide unparalleled motion control for precision machining. A pneumatic hold-down system enables us to provide quick turnaround on volume jobs. With these routers we are able to accommodate custom applications of all types, including three dimensional (3D) surfaces.
We can provide precision machining for plastics products such as jigs and tooling fixtures. Our CNC capabilities include:
- CNC routing
- Precision cutting
- Plastic millwork
- Plastic engraving
We are experienced in fabricating the following types of plastics products using precision machining processes:
- Tooling fixtures
- Aircraft interiors
- Screen pipe (ventilation and filtration systems)
- Signs and lettering
- POP displays
- Corner guards, crash rails, kick plates
- Museum cases
- …and more
We are able to fabricate using CNC processes on the following materials, which we can also supply in raw form to you:
- Acrylics (ESD, tinted, coloured)
- Mechanical plastics
- HDPE, LDPE
- PVC, CPVC
- Polycarbonates (Lexan*)
- PVDF (Kynar)
- …and others
In addition, our finishing services are second to none. Your final product will be expertly finished to your satisfaction, including edges, corners and all aesthetic details.
3D CAD Drawing Service
We can also draw and machine 3D moulds for your custom plastic fabrication project. We combine our expertise in machining with skills in computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM) to:
- Offer free-form surface machining
- Generate 2D and 3D models of moulds
- Turn CAD and CAM drawings into machine instructions for precise machining of complex moulds for plastic products
We use only the best: Rhino CAD/CAM software is the most trusted name in the market place. Its battled-tested machining algorithms have stood the test of time and will provide high-quality rendering and machining for your critical or complex project.
Prototypes to Volume Production
With our CNC machining and other custom plastic fabrication capabilities, we can take a customer’s unique design for an item in plastic, work with them to select the best plastics material for the job, then fabricate a prototype and bring the item to full-volume production.
Plas-Tech Fab has more than 50 years of plastic fabrication, CNC and precision machining experience and exceptional material knowledge and are able to advise customers to optimize their plastics designs and to select the ideal plastic materials for each job. We specialize in complex and high-quality custom plastic fabrication, making us the go-to fabricators for tough and mission-critical plastic fabrication jobs.
We work closely with North American customers to fabricate, precision machine and CNC machine their designs in a wide range of synthetic materials.
About CNC for Precision Plastic Fabrication
CNC is an acronym for computer numerically controlled. It refers to automated machine tools that are run by pre-programmed software. A design – such as a CAD design – or a set of instructions is programmed into the CNC machine and this enables highly repeatable, precision machining.
CNC machines transformed the plastics fabrication industry because they make curves as easy to cut as straight lines, and because they can provide precision machining – for example, to achieve high-volume fabrication of complex shapes.
In the world of custom plastic fabrication, CNC machining is popularly used for detailed routing, mould making, cutting and carving and engraving of plastics, as well as to cut and bend plastics into unique shapes – for example, jigs, tooling fixtures, acrylic signs, aircraft interiors, etc.
