Why use a CNC router for volume plastic components?

Computer numerically controlled (CNC) routing is for cutting CNC tool paths, to your desired geometrical shape and size, supplied in a STEP or CAD file, using a subtractive machining process.

IPFL have a large capacity of the latest high-speed CNC Routing machines, built for larger format industrial machining. Experts in plastic routing, we produce highly accurate quality components, in a variety of plastics including; Acrylic, Polycarbonate, Acetal, PTFE, SRBP.

Our dedicated team are on hand for design optimisation of your CAD file, we will help guide you on the most efficient process and material for your plastic components if you require it.

Simply supply your design in a STEP or CAD file for the subtractive machining process to do its work.
