Plastic CNC machining uses computer numerical control machine tools (CNC) to process plastic materials. In this process, operators use computer software to design the desired shapes and dimensions, then convert CAD files into machine instructions that tell CNC machines to perform operations such as cutting, engraving and drilling on plastic material to complete the desired shapes and dimensions.

The following are the guidelines for Plastic CNC machining:

Drawing Design

Before the CNC machining of plastics, a drawing design is required to determine the desired shape and size. Here are some things to look for:

Plastic parts size

Before the drawing design, it is necessary to accurately measure the size and shape of the parts to be processed. This can be done using measuring tools such as callipers, rulers, and microscopes.

Determine the machining path

Before the drawing design, it is necessary to accurately measure the size and shape of the parts to be processed. This can be done using measuring tools such as callipers, rulers, and microscopes.

Safety distance

We must consider the required parts’ safety distance when drawing a design. Safety distance refers to the minimum distance between the cutting tool and the plastic material in CNC machines to avoid collision and damage.

File format

The designer need to save the drawing in the correct file format to ensure the CNC machine can read and interpret the drawing correctly. Common file formats include DXF, DWG, and STL.

Design feasibility analysis:

Before beginning any machining process, the engineer should conduct a design feasibility analysis to ensure that the CNC machine can process your design. This includes checking that the size, shape and features of the design are feasible and determining the most suitable CNC machine tools and tools for machining the parts.
