Our Outstanding CNC Nylon Machining Capability
What is good for Nylon Material?
Nylon is a synthetic thermoplastic linear polyamide. It can be mixed with various substances to achieve different variations in properties, the properties have Excellent mechanical properties, great abrasion resistance, and a low friction coefficient.
There are many types of nylon, the most two popular grades are nylon 6 and nylon 6/6. Besides, the raw material for CNC machining is stock sheets, rods, and tubes.
Besides, nylon is resistant to chemicals and hydrocarbons that are available in FDA-compliant and USDA-approved grades.
Nylon has benefits like high strength-to-weight ratio, producing less operating noise, good machinability. This makes it to be used into a lot of applications, some typical types are shown below:
√ Bearings and Bushings
√ Engine components
√ Rollers and wheels
√ Seals and gaskets
√ Wear plates, pads components
√ Gear components
√ Fastener including screws, nuts, and bolts
√ Commercial and industrial food and beverage industry
√ Plastic injection molding parts
Machining and fabrication methods
Nylon is an ideal engineering plastic material that can be manufactured economically by CNC machining. At RapidDone, CNC turning and CNC milling are the two common machining methods to create components.
However, there are also other machining methods for fabrication as below:
The Finishes for nylon machined parts
A machined nylon part comes in with two colors, one is black color, the other one is a neutral color that has a milky-white finish and a little translucent.
It can also be applied with a second operation finish such as gloss polish, oil painting with different colors.
The recommended Tips for Nylon CNC Machining
There are quite several machining guidelines including the following:
√ Handle well for workpiece
As nylon is not as rigid as a metal material, it might cause marks or deformation issues if the clamping pressures are too high, especially for weak workpiece with thin thickness.
Besides, a bad loose clamping might cause small vibration during CNC machining. As a result, it leads to low-quality surfaces.
Lastly, annealing can eliminate the long strings and wrap-up, it helps to a better cutting with a workpiece after annealing.
√ Machining parameters setting
It is suggested to make sure to choose the tools that are as sharp as possible. Also, try to choose low spindle speed and a high possible speed when cutting.
Those can keep your swarf thick and decrease the heat during Nylon material-removing that will result in the deformation issue.
