Precision Plastic & Composite Machining Capabilities
Plastic Part Machining Industry Experts
Anyone can cut metal. Machining plastics is a different story. To successfully manufacture complex plastic parts to print, you need to work with someone who has extensive experience with plastics. At Upland Fab, we’ve been machining plastics in California since 1970.
Upland Fab's Precision Plastics
To cut parts from materials like Teflon® or Vespel®, you need to be very familiar with them and understand how they respond to heat or other stresses. You also need to be experienced with unique cutting techniques. Upland Fab engineers have experience with precision plastics that other manufacturers simply cannot match.
Carbon Fiber Machining and Honeycomb Composites
Composites, like carbon fiber and honeycomb/foam core, are some of the most difficult materials to machine. The development of a multitude of honeycomb based products indicates its highly successful application for components requiring a high strength to weight ratio along with energy absorption considerations, and the range of materials in which it is now made, various metals, fibers and plastics. This now demonstrates its continued future importance for designers and manufacturers to use Honeycomb composite material. Unlike other manufacturers, machining composites are our specialty, which means we know the secret to successfully machining parts from composite materials. With 5-axis CNC machining, we cut composite materials into complex parts.
