Special Features for Plastic, Fleece and Wood
Unlike many other companies, we generally do not process metals, but plastics, nonwovens and wood. This differs in the type of milling machines, but also in the milling cutters and the required material knowledge. The basis for the best milling results is to fix the part or the board to be milled, for example using a multi-zone vacuum table. How to create warp-free workpieces. The milling cutter used for the plastic is very sharp and moves extremely quickly. There are special spindles specially designed for plastics. Consistent cooling of tools and workpieces via minimum quantity lubrication / spray cooling is necessary for plastic milling, since these can melt even at low temperatures. This requires a precise adaptation of the milling cutter to the material. Since plastics are very different, it is often necessary to test here to find the optimal combination of driving speed, speed (up to 10m / min) and revolutions.
