Introducing: The Essential Guide to Machining Plastic Materials

Custom Plastic Fabrication: Get the Machining Guide

When it comes to custom fabrication, there is simply no comparison between machining metal and machining plastic.

Metals retain their shape as they are cut and milled, while plastics can expand up to five times their original dimension― as you work on them. How can a metal machine shop adjust to machining plastics?  What are the top techniques to achieving custom plastic fabrication?   TriStar, the leader in engineered plastic components, has the answers ― and we’re sharing our expertise.
