At Plastem we only machine plastics so cross-contamination with metal filings is almost impossible. This is an important consideration for medical, electronic and food-contact applications. Our experience with plastics means that we know which are the best feeds and spindle speeds needed to achieve a superior surface finish, which coolants are most suitable and which materials are more prone to heat distortion during machining (eg Polyethylene).

We use OneCNC 3D Professional CAD/CAM software and are therefore able to download your files in various formats.

Our CNC machines include a Quick 1325 Router (capacity 2500 x 1300 mm), a Hurco VM10i vertical machining centre (capacity 610 x 400 mm), a Haas TL10 Big Bore lathe (dia 50 mm through spindle and dia 160 mm in chuck) and a Yunnan-Saxon lathe (dia 80 mm through spindle and dia 280 mm in chuck). All our machines are regularly serviced and kept in excellent condition.
