Like metal machining, plastic machining is a subtractive process, removing layers of material to form the end product. The process for machining plastics is also similar to metal- both involving turning, drilling, milling and grinding. However there are several advantages to machining plastics rather than traditional metals, including:
- More economical
- Shorter lead time
- Can trial a design before committing to tooling
- Normally machine dry
- Relatively easier to recycle materials
