Advantages of Using CNC Machined Plastic Parts 

One main advantage of using CNC-machined plastic parts is that they are much lighter and stronger than metal parts.Friction reduction and wear resistance enhancement

  • Much lighter than metal parts, resulting in higher fuel efficiency 
  • Highly resistant to chemicals, making them ideal for use in aircraft and other vehicles where fluids may be present

Aircrafts that use our specialty machined plastic parts benefit from enhanced wear and temperature resistance, and greater fuel efficiency.

CNC machining is an ideal manufacturing process for producing precision parts for the military and aerospace industries. 

CNC-machined parts are also highly repeatable, making them a preferred choice for aerospace applications. In addition, it can produce parts with tight tolerances and intricate designs. The process is also well suited for high-volume production runs, making it a cost-effective solution for the military/aerospace industry.

CNC Machined Plastic Materials for Military/Aerospace Parts

When manufacturing military and aerospace parts, various plastics are used. Each plastic type has unique properties, making it suitable for specific applications. Here are some of the common plastics we use for our aerospace and military machined parts:

  • PEEK: This high-performance, flame retardant plastic has excellent mechanical and chemical resistance properties. It is ideal for harsh environments and a good choice for applications where fire safety is a concern.
  • Polycarbonate: This high-performance plastic is lightweight, has excellent impact resistance, and is transparent, making it a good choice for applications where visibility is essential.
  • Nylon: This versatile plastic is solid and durable, making it ideal for use in demanding environments. It is also lightweight and has good resistance to abrasion and chemicals.
  • Polyetherimide (PEI): This high-performance plastic has excellent mechanical and thermal properties. 
  • Torlon: This high-performance, flame retardant plastic has excellent mechanical and chemical resistance properties, making it ideal in harsh environments.
  • Teflon: This fluoropolymer is often used as a coating because of its non-stick properties. Teflon is also resistant to chemicals and heat, making it a good choice for applications where these properties are essential.
  • Polysulfone: This is a versatile engineering plastic that can be used in various military and aerospace applications for its high strength-to-weight ratio, thermal stability, and chemical resistance, making it an ideal material for many different types of parts.
