Tight, Consistent Tolerances

Our advanced technology lets us hold tight production tolerances for both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional parts. That means we route intricate shapes with high repeatability over the entire production run. Rest assured that your parts will exceed your expectations when ICP’s pros get to work.

5-Axis CNC Plastic Routing vs. 3-Axis CNC Plastic Routing – What’s the difference?

3-axis CNC routing works great for flat (or mostly flat) parts. But for three-dimensional parts with varying angles, multiple surfaces, little nooks and crannies, you’ll need the maneuverability and precision of a 5-axis CNC routing machine. With their multiple-axis robotic heads, our 5-axis routers can easily handle those complex plastic parts.

Regardless of which type you need, our expertise in CNC machining will bring you the precise parts you need when you need them.

 

What kind of parts can we make from a 5-Axis CNC Machine?

  • Trimming and routing vacuum and pressure-formed parts
  • Post-bend trimming of heat or cold-bent parts
  • Trimming injection-molded parts

3-Axis CNC Plastic Routing

3-Axis CNC routers are used primarily to manufacture 2-dimensional parts from flat sheets. Our largest router works on parts as large as 6’ x 12’.

Typical applications for our 3-Axis router include

Cutting prefabrication blanks
Drilling or generating holes
Crowning edges
Routing or drilling cutouts, signage, steps, pockets, and counter-bores
