Plastic Part & Stock Shape Machining

More Design Options from More Manufacturing Options

Machining metal is commonplace. Plastic Part and Stock Shape machining is a specialty only the most skilled resin craftsmen can attempt.
After molding to Near-Net-Shape, Hi-Tech uses CNC mills and lathes to improve component tolerance or achieve geometries you cannot create with injection molding alone.

Save Time and Money with Prototyping

Plastic Part and Stock Shape machining is also a time and money saver for prototyping. Developing and optimizing component geometry using prototypes by machining thermoplastic or stock shapes saves tooling time and cost. After successful prototyping and component testing, you can be more confident of your final outcome and safely translate components from low volume machining to higher volume molding.

Other Hi-Tech milling operations include:

  • Milling of composite UD Tape laminates.
  • Development of vertical integration opportunities on metal components to reduce lead time and cost
  • Machining of Torlon, Vespel, Metals, Composites, PEEK, Nylon

Are there benefits of Prototyping in Molded Production in Thermoplastics?

We help our Customers scale up parts and assemblies from the Prototype Phase to hard tooling and the higher volumes of Injection Molding utilizing thermoplastic Stock Shapes.
In one of our Hi-Tech Talks, we put together a basic cost profile and the benefits of molding.

Hi-Tech does it every day.
