How Does Plastic Machining Work?

Due to the nature of the material, plastic machining is more of a tenuous process than metal machining. Plastic is usually a softer material and is more prone to bending, cracking, warping and losing its structural integrity than most metals. Despite that, computer numerical control (CNC) plastic machining can still be performed safely and capably […]
