Experience & Expertise

With over 60 years experience in machining plastics, we're a premier supplier to blue chip companies in the offshore, food manufacturing, instrumentation and materials handling industries. Our rapidly growing reputation has made Machined Components our fastest growing division.

Plastim only machine plastics so cross-contamination with metal filings is almost impossible. This is an important consideration for medical and certain food-contact applications. Our experience and knowledge means that we know which coolants are unsuitable for certain plastic materials and which materials are more prone to heat distortion during machining.

Technology

Investment in modern CNC vertical machining centres and lathes has kept our machining times competitive. We have one 2 axis and three 4 axis CNC lathes, including a new Doosan Puma mill-turn centre. Maximum turning diameter is 400 mm. Our milling production unit comprises one 2 axis CNC Turret Mill as well as three 3 axis and one 4 axis Haas VMC. Maximum travel on our Haas VF4 is 1200 x 500 mm. All machines are directly connected to our OneCNC CAD/CAM software which allows us to switch production from one machine to another, should it be required, thereby avoiding production bottlenecks.

Service

On-time delivery of top quality components is of prime importance to us as we are totally committed to customer satisfaction and long-term relationships. We have ISO 9001-2008 certification and are therefore compelled to meet the highest standards from when we receive your order until despatch.

If you have any questions we will be happy to arrange a meeting to discuss your particular requirements.
