Partwell Group CNC engineer bespoke plastic parts from plastic sheet. The featured image is an example of a plastic star part machined from cast nylon 6 material.
Cast Nylon 6 is a hard material, harder than extruded nylon 6 and very easy to machine to excellent tolerances. It is offers a low co-efficient of friction therefore perfect for moving, wearing and sliding plastic components. This grade has the best impact strength, therefore most suitable for substantial impact loads when compared to all other grades of nylon such as extruded 6, 66 and 12.
Nylon 66 is even easier to machine that cast 6. 66 will provide better mechanical strength and higher temperature performance.
