Tufnol materials for engineering
Machined Plastics Components
from TUFNOL Composites Ltd
Why use machined parts?
Machining is often the most cost effective method of producing plastics components in small to medium batch quantities. A wide choice of materials is available and machining offers great flexibility in design, without the heavy tooling costs associated with moulding. Component dimensions and design can often be easily altered without incurring excessive expense and machining is often the only practical method of producing components in materials resin bonded composites with high quality fibre reinforcements which are not suitable for moulding of sophisticated shapes.
