Plastic machining made by AKE

Quality criteria for plastic machining

Due to the variety of chemical compounds, material combinations
and operating conditions involved in machining plastics, this requires
special tool concepts designed for the application and the specific machine used.

Finish cutting
► Cutting surfaces that do not require reworking

Cutting surfaces not subjected to thermal loads
► Heat needs to be dissipated via the chips
► No adhesion

Tear-free edges
► No fractures on the trailing edge

Customised tooth shape and tooth number
► Saw blade design
► Machine equipment is important for ensuring good cutting results


Bombastic for plastic machining

Applications involving machining thermoplastics such as PC and PMMA
are where Bombastic can be used to its full potential. Tools used for plastic machining need to meet
the following challenges:

 Plastic is extremely sensitive to heat and therefore tends to adhere to tools
 
 Most individual plastic panels are extremely thin

The material is extremely difficult to machine and highly abrasive
