Milling of plastic enclosures

Milling of plastic enclosures.

It is perfectly possible to machine plastic enclosures out of a full block of material. More specific, this manufacturing process is suitable when the desired quantities are lower than the viable quantities for injection molding. Knowing that CNC machining will result in a more expensive unit cost, it is a fact that you don’t have the investment of an relatively expansive injection mold.

Another reason to chose for milling a plastic product could be because of different versions and features. It is easy to machine different series with different connector holes, for instance. This is less obvious with a mold. There is less freedom in design and shapes when we talk about milling. However, it is possible to obtain curved and complex shapes when we use our 3-axis CNC machines with a ball head mill, at high rotation speed. At Davantech, we also offer milling of prototypes of electronic enclosures. It is a fast and easy way to verify the design of your product. A milled product is stronger than 3D printing. There are different reasons why milling of plastic enclosures is a good solution. In case your volume is high enough, we suggest to send us your enquiry for injection molding.
