Plastic Machining Solutions

As well as having access to the latest plastic machinery and equipment, our engineering team receive continuous training to ensure that their knowledge and skills are kept up to date. Our plastic engineering process can create whatever part you may need, whether it is a one-off bespoke item or a large batch, we can help. We are experts in plastic engineering and work across a range of industries; we can offer you quality guidance and feedback at every stage of the design process – we are also ISO 9001/2008 certified.

Several techniques are used within the CNC process to obtain the makeup of the specific bespoke shapes and each plastic machining technique has its own machine. Examples of production methods include turning, milling and drilling.
