Machined Plastic Prototyped & Manufactured in 24 Hours

Machined Plastics Slideshot

A new client visited our Plastic Engineering stand at the recent Northern Manufacturing & Electronics exhibition in Manchester.

A member of the Partwell CNC engineering office made a site visit to the client to discuss a new machined plastic that the client had, this was discussed in detail, designed and a physical plastic prototype machined and delivered in 24 hours.

Customer Satisfaction - Success

As a result of the turnaround time, the client now orders in excess of a hundred units per order.

The Product Detail

The finished machined plastic component was a support for a camera slide. It was produced from ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene PE1000 grade material. This material was recommended for use by Partwell as it has low friction, therefore perfect for sliding and slipping components.  Polyethylene PE1000 grade is also very easy to CNC machine and will offer the client excellent product durability.
