The use of plastic components has become so wide-spread that most likely we don’t notice the many items we use that are made completely of plastic or of plastic components. Many manufacturers have found that by converting their metal components to plastic ones they can find numerous savings in design changes, overall costs, weight and waste.
The variety of characteristics of plastic materials has also increased to include heat tolerance, tensile strength, and chemical resistance. At PEP Connecticut Plastics, precision machining provides the ability to create nearly any part or component. These are all high-precision, machined plastics, from the simplest to the most intricate with the tightest tolerances for a broad array of standard plastics, as well as many advanced and unusual plastics that other companies won’t handle.
Results of Precision Machining
A large number of both large and small objects that we use in daily life are produced by precision machining. One level or another of a machinist’s skills is needed for each intricate piece which makes up an object. Likewise, machine tool calibration, specifically welding or grooving by a precision machinist is required when a machine or tool gets worn down. Precision machining reaches into every technology and industry and PEP Connecticut Plastics has become a preferred supplier among many laboratories for diagnostic instruments, which require clear, acrylic components.
Precision Machining Benefits
At PEP Connecticut Plastics, plastics machining is the only thing we do. As such, we have found there are significant benefits to precision machining these types of components. Precision machining enables companies such as ours to take full advantage of all the materials used and minimize waste. This reduces our costs which can be passed on to our clients.
Precision machining of plastic parts also enables complicated parts to be manufactured with much rapidity and consistency. In addition, the parts produced are of the highest quality as internal quality assurance detectors are embedded in the systems which can detect when an error has occurred and halt operation so that counteractive measures can be performed.
Precision machining also means that these machines are highly adaptable, enabling them to be used in different industries such as aerospace, defence, engineering, and communications. These companies then produce the many products that we use or touch upon in our everyday lives.
