Machined Components

As an alternative to 3D prototyping we can also provide machined components which are produced from a solid block of plastic on a mill, lathe or router. These parts can be machined to your drawing specifications. This process is delivered as a managed service through our trusted supplier who canproduce one off through to small batches.

This method of prototyping produces superior strength and surface finish to any additive process, it also has the complete homogenous properties of the plastic because it is made from solid blocks of extruded or compression moulded thermoplastic resin.There are however limitations with regard to the detail and form of the component that can be produced.


What information would we need?

  • 2D Detailed component drawing
  • 3D CAD Data
  • Volume requirements
  • Specified Material
  • Product specification if the material is unknown
