Based in Perth, we service a wide range of clients, from those in the plastic manufacturing industry to individuals requiring custom plastic cutting. We typically cut plastic for a range of scientific equipment and other industrial applications. We produce quality products with a high level of accuracy, according to the specifications, in an economical and efficient manner. For customised products, our team will gladly assist you in creating your own design for production. Contact us now for more information.

We use plastic, in its many different forms, in our lives on a daily basis whether it be our pill boxes, moulds or even toys. In addition, many companies use plastic parts as core components for their machinery. Making these versatile, and in some cases, highly intricate products is time consuming. However, by using our CNC routers for plastic cutting, the job will be quickly, yet accurately, completed.

What does plastic machining entail?

So, what does plastic machining and CNC plastic cutting actually entail? Because plastic is much easier to machine than metal, complicated features can easily be cut into this material. However, no matter how seemingly malleable plastic is, it will still require the right tools to transform it into a workable and functional product. A CNC router is the perfect machine for the job.

It is, however, important to note that not all plastics can be machined, as this is dependent upon the plastic’s rigidity. The best plastics for machining are those that are hard and rigid, and softer plastics are unsuited for machining. This is mainly because more pliable plastics will bend when they are being machined, which will result in a deformed end product. Rigid plastics, however, will maintain their shape and offer crisp and clean finishes on the manufactured product.

We work with a wide range of plastics

Here at Routers Australia, we work with a wide range of plastics including; high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic, which is used in the production of pipes, plastic bottles and a variety of industrial products; polypropylene plastic, which is used to make packaging, containers and scientific equipment; and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic, which can be used to manufacture toys and small appliances. In our case, an example would be undersea products. If you’re unsure about our ability to cut a certain type of plastic, contact our professional CNC plastic cutting team for more information.

As you can see, plastic is used in a range of products. In addition, certain plastics are perfectly suited to the machining process, producing a wide range of products that can be used for both commercial and private use. Also, because CNC plastic cutting is completely computerised, it can be set to produce just a few manufactured items, as well as offering a mass production option. Either way, the end result will be precise, clean and delivered in a short amount of time.

Whether you decide on one of our designs, or require a customised service, we will do the job professionally and efficiently. Contact us now if you have any questions, or if you require a quote.
