Yes. Plastics and their related materials can be milled. Depending on their rigidity, some plastics are more suitable than others for milling. Strong or rigid plastics hold still when machined, making them a more suitable choice for CNC milling.
Softer, flexible plastics are more challenging to work with because they don’t hold as easily as rigid plastics.
When you choose to manufacture your custom spare parts with plastics, you are choosing a more cost-effective and recyclable alternative without all the challenges of metal machining and milling.
CNC milling on plastics is completely reliant on the types of plastics used. Because it is easier to mill rigid plastics, some plastic materials are more suitable for CNC milling than others. These are;
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) plastic has excellent impact resistance and is easy to machine.
Acrylic is strong, stiff and available in a wide range of colors.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is strong, stiff, and easy to machine, fabricate, and weld. It is also a great low-cost plastic alternative.
Nylon is a strong, stiff plastic capable of being engineered and suitable for bearings and bushings.
PET is a strong plastic with high chemical and wear resistance.
Polypropylene (PP) is lightweight, tough, and resistant to chemicals, electrolytes, and organic solvents.
PPS has high levels of corrosion and temperature resistance.
Teflon is a low friction plastic with high temperature and chemical resistance.
Polycarbonate is a strong plastic with high impact resistance.
The most important thing to note is that there are no special machines for plastic milling. The machines used for metal milling are also what is used for plastic milling and machining. This is why strong, rigid plastics are preferred for plastic milling.
In the case of injection molding, it works by first melting thermoplastics in a large barrel before the molten thermoplastics are injected into molds. Once the plastic is set, the molds are ejected, and the process continues,
Before buying a CNC milling machine for plastic injection, understand that you need molding machines and not milling machines.
Their driving systems classify the machines you need for injection molding. They include;
The need for precision parts transcends industries. Many high-performing companies and industries need a continuous flow of spare parts to ensure that their businesses run smoothly.

Follow the following steps to clean acrylic or plastic parts after precision CNC milling;
CNC plastic milling is one of the most preferred spare parts choices for manufacturing due to its ease of use, and as such, large quantities are also suitable for plastic milling.
Whether for direct plastic milling where plastics are cut and machined or injection molding where molten plastics are poured into a mold and extracted, it is possible to machine plastics in large quantities.
Due to its cost-effective properties for machining and molding, it is also possible to manufacture small batches of plastic spare parts for your use.
It is important to note that once the initial prototype is machined, all other plastic spare parts become easy to manufacture. This is also true for injection molding, where the successful creation of the initial mold makes subsequent molding suitable, even in smaller quantities.
Injection molding works by injecting molten thermoplastics into molds. Once the mold is completed, the mold opens, and the part is ejected. While CNC milling plastics works by cutting layers of the plastic material using a computer numerical control machine (CNC Machine).
The significant difference between these two plastic manufacturing processes is the state at which each plastic material is used to create its designated spare parts. For injection molding, plastics are heated until ‘liquid’ before being used, and for CNC milling, solid, rigid plastics are used because they are easy to cut.
China has been importing waste plastics and other materials since the early 1980s to build a recycling industry, and because of this, China became an inexpensive outlet for recyclable waste from U.S. and European cities.
When you choose a CNC milling plastic supplier from China, you get a wealth of recyclable plastic materials available for plastic manufacturing and machining at a low cost.
China also has all the machines used for CNC machining and injection molding, making the country the preferred choice for CNC milling plastic suppliers.
