Milling is the process of removing material from a block to create a desired part or shape. In milling, the part remains stationary on a table and the table moves the part against a rotating cutting tool removing the excess material. First developed in the late 1700s, the process has evolved with the precise use of computer controls.
By using these CNC machining centers, we can create complex parts with high precision and excellent repeatability. Chicago Plastic Systems is the go-to source for the highest quality CNC plastic milled parts in the industry. We offer full QC documentation on every milled part we make so you can be sure your product will work perfectly right out of the box. Our skilled machinists can hold tolerances as tight as +/-.003 on plastics and +/-.001 on metals. Surface finishes range as low as 16 micro-inches. With table sizes up to 26” x 50” and 24” tall, we can make larger plastic parts than many of our competitors.
Additionally, we have true 4-axis milling capabilities to add side features all at the same time, making a more precise part. And because the part doesn’t have to be handled multiple times or with multiple set-ups, we can save time which leads to lower costs.
Don’t trust your important plastic milled part to any regular machine shop. Contact us today and work with a company that specializes in machined plastic parts.
