What is ABS?
ABS is an amorphous polymer and a common thermoplastic, it is commonly called Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene or the king of plastic.
It has excellent engineering properties. The properties include high impact resistance, good heat resistance, high tensile strength, good machinability, and excellent impact strength.
Lastly, this is a very cheap engineering material.
Is ABS Machinable?
ABS has excellent machinability, it can be cut, milled, drilled, welded, and more. It is one of the most ideal engineering materials for the CNC machining industry.
The Finishes for CNC ABS machined parts
There are a lot of finishes and there are three common types: As milled, polish, painting.
√ As milled
The machined faces for an ABS part are normally matte, this is the as-milled finish.
√ Polish finish
The polish process can make your polished faces to be shiny.
This process is very important for prototyping.
Depend on the choice of paint, we can have different colors with this finish. At the same time, it can create different textures for the part surfaces.
What is the difference between CNC ABS and 3D printing ABS?
Compared with 3D printing, CNC machining mainly has several benefits as below:
It depends on the quantity of ABS parts. As CNC machining has good production repeatability, it is more cost-effective in a big quantity such as more than 10sets or more.
In most cases, we can have more precision and high-quality ABS parts by using CNC machining.
√ Production lead time
CNC machines can work at faster speeds, you can get your ABS parts machined at a faster lead time than 3D printing.
CNC Machining options
Not all plastics can be machined, the best ones are those that are somewhat rigid. ABS is one of the rigid types, it can be easily machined with several machining methods.
√ CNC Milling
√ CNC Turning
√ CNC Sawing and Cutting
√ CNC Multiple Axis Machining such as 5-axis CNC machining
When the parts are produced with the CNC machining method, it is mostly used as a rapid prototyping product.
As one of the most popular plastic material, there are many applications, the favored types are as below.
• Car parts like Seatbacks, seat belt components, handles
• Wheel covers
• Instrument panels
• Electrical & Electronics field
• Household goods
• Consumer goods
Recommended tips for ABS CNC machining
√ Avoid distortion
Compared with metal material, the ABS has a lower melted point. When the cutting speed and feed depth are too big, it may cause a distortion problem. It is important to keep the proper cutting speed and feed depth to avoid such issues.
Besides, when the thickness is too small, it is easy to create a distortion issue too. Make sure it is at least 3mm thick.
√ Cost-saving Tips
Make sure the cutting tool is as sharp as possible, this helps for material removing efficiency. The other cost-saving tips include limiting the number of part setups, using looser tolerances, and having less secondary operations for the parts, and more.
