CNC engineering precision

CNC engineering is more precise than manual machining, and can be repeated in exactly the same manner over and over again. Because of the accuracy possible with CNC Machining, this process is ideal for intricate and complex jobs; jobs that would be almost impossible to achieve with manual machining.

Here at Partwell, through our capabilities in CNC Engineering of bespoke plastic parts, we possess the ability to meet design requirement demands from customers in various industries. Partwell operates 5-axis CNC technology; portraying the precision of cutting complex 3D plastic components as child’s play.

The CNC machining head can rotate to almost any angle, reducing lead times for components with non standard angle detail without the need to have special tools manufactured.

Our unique plastic parts engineering capabilities include:

  • Extensive machining capabilities - 5 axis, 3 axis CNC machines, Water Jet Cutting, Die Cutting
  • Large bed sizes for the handling of large sheet plastic up to 3500mm x 1500mm
  • Spindle speed of 20,000 rpm
  • Rapid speeds of up to 75 meters per minute
  • CNC machining speeds of up to 12 meters per minute based on tooling
  • A large quantity of tool stations

Partwell provide a highly professional service along with our bespoke plastic CNC Engineered products; a core value we believe strongly in. A recent customer approached Partwell with a problem regarding a prototype for a new line of plastic engineered playground products; which allowed our CNC department to work closely with the customer to come up with a quick efficient method of production.

500 grade polyethylene triple layer was chosen as the material, its ideal for playground use because of the texture and bright colours the material offers.

The ability to work personally with the customer regarding the design provides great advantages for both Partwell and the customer; suggestions can be handled much quicker, creating a personal and long-term customer relationship.

This recent order for playground plastic prototypes demonstrated that Partwell can work closely with customers, meet design demands and provide professional service to a number of industries.
