Pros of Plastics Machining
There are no mold-related expenditures.
being able to produce plastic components with quick lead times
the capacity to produce in low numbers profitably
Can a design be tested before moving forward with tooling?
Wall parts that are thicker can be permitted.
Machined plastic parts can be used to create components that are too big to mold.
Plastics may be machined with little force.
Usually, plastics are machine-dried.
Swarf may be recycled to further the process of compounding.
Cons of Machining Plastic Materials
Only the most rigid plastics materials can be machined
Cost of block plastic material is rather expensive.
There may be a high scrap rate (in comparison to other plastics manufacturing techniques).
Having a large amount of swarf to remove might be challenging.
High CNC machine time costs
