CNC Plastics Routing

CNC Platic RoutingCNC Plastics Routing Capabilities and Experience

Our CNC Plastics Routing Services have a proven track record of precision quality and on-time delivery. ICP uses state-of-the-art CNC plastic routing technology. ICP plastics routing offers the quickest feed rates and programming capabilities possible along with the consistency of the finished part. Our tight tolerance CNC plastic routing equipment can trim your large production parts or cut large quantities of sheet plastic. As a plastic router, we produce top quality parts accurately & cost-effectively. CNC plastic routers ensure high-speed automated routing of all types of plastics. Our CNC plastic routing operations can produce complex shapes and designs. ICP plastics routing is an excellent process for producing high volumes of precision cut, complex parts with repeatability, speed and accuracy.

Tight, Consistent Tolerances

Working with this advanced technology lets our professionals hold tight production tolerances. As a result, we can route intricate shapes with high repeatability over the entire production run.

5-Axis CNC Plastic Routing

Fabricating 3-dimensional parts requires more plastics routing versatility than 3-axis plastic routing. Our 5-axis plastics routers, with their multiple-axis robotic heads, can trim and route parts that are deep, or have multiple surfaces and angles, such as thermoformed or vacuum formed parts.

  • Some applications for 5-axis plastic routing are:
    • Trimming and routing vacuum and pressure-formed parts
    • Post-bend trimming of heat or cold-bent parts
    • Routing cylinders or tubing

3-Axis CNC Plastic Routing

3-axis CNC routers are used primarily to manufacture 2-dimensional parts from flat sheet. The largest router can manage parts as large as 63 by 102 inches with a cut depth of up to 6 inches. This depth is important if material needs to be removed or graduated levels are machined into a part. To give our customers maximum cost efficiency, we frequently run multiple parts simultaneously, thanks to our routers' multiple cutting and drilling heads.

  • Typical applications on the 3-axis routers are:
    • Cutting prefabrication blanks
    • Drilling or generating holes
    • Crowning edges
    • Routing or drilling cutouts, signage, steps, pockets and counter-bores

The Benefits of ICP CNC Plastics Routing are:

  • Quickest feed rates and programming capabilities possible
  • Consistency of the finished part
  • Precision quality and on-time delivery
  • High quality edge finish
  • State-of-the-art CNC plastic routing technologies
  • Tight tolerance CNC plastic routing equipment
