Plastic Machining

American Micro Industries provides plastic machining services to support a range of industrial and commercial applications. We’re a quality-driven company, one that works closely with its clients to provide customized solutions based on their requirements.

Plastic Machining Capabilities

American Micro Industries is unique in its ability to fabricate machined parts from a variety of plastics. Our clients include manufacturers, aerospace and defense contractors, automotive suppliers and more, all of whom have unique material requirements. To offer solutions to a broader range of industries and sectors, we can work with:

  • Acetal resins such as Delrin®. Our acetal machining capabilities produce parts that are lightweight, FDA compliant, low friction and wear resistant. Automotive and medical applications often use machined Delrin parts.
  • Acrylics such as Plexiglas® and Lucite®. Machining acrylics requires specialized equipment and highly skilled operators to reduce the risk of delamination — contact American Micro Industries for assistance determining whether this is the right choice for your project.
  • Noryl®, a modified polyphenylene oxide (PPO) resin. Noryl offers good stability, creep resistance and a low specific gravity, but poor chemical resistance. Pumps, valves and fittings frequently used machined Noryl components.
  • PVC and CPVC, two fire-resistant thermoplastics commonly used in plumbing and insulation components. CPVC is the more durable and ductile of the two, making it suitable for more demanding applications.
  • PVDF plastics such as Kynar® and Solef®. PVDF machining produces flexible components with high abrasion resistance and thermal stability, ideal for use in electrical systems.
  • Polycarbonate thermoplastic polyesters, such as Lexan®. American Micro Industries offers Lexan polycarbonate machining for automotive and aerospace manufacturers, among other clients.
  • Polypropylene, a polymer with good chemical and fatigue resistance. Polypropylene can be machined to produce dielectric insulators, medical products and construction parts and components.
  • Teflon® and other polytetrafluoroethylene polymers. Teflon has a low coefficient of friction.
  • UHMW and HDPE plastics. We can match you with the right polyethylene material for your application, whether you’re looking for something with good chemical resistance, rigidity or any other property.

Selecting the right material for a machining project is a complex task. One of the benefits of working with an experienced plastics machining company such as American Micro Industries is our extensive in-house expertise. We can consult with you to offer several options based on your technical specifications as well as your budgetary and production requirements.
