Available Material

Nylon 6

Nylon 6(PA 6) -A widely Used thermoplastic known for excellent mechanical, thermal, flow-ability, High Tough, and hardness. It can be used in different kinds of industries. 

Nylon 6-30% Glass Filled

Nylon 6- 30% Glass Fiber Filled- a reinforced Engineering Plastic, has higher tension Strength than reinforced plastic. Very Tough due to the 30% glass fiber.

Nylon(PA) 6/6 30% Glass Filled

Nylon 6/6 is a glass Fiber-reinforced Plastic.  The glass fiber gives the material higher compressive strength, rigidity, and improved frictional characteristics.

Nylon(PA) 6 Flame Retardant

It is also called PA 6 FR. It has been modified for inherent flame resistance. This nylon combines good wear and sliding properties, high strength, and good chemical(corrosion) resistance.

Frequently Asked Questions

A CNC machine for Nylon machining is a computer numerical control machine that produces parts from Nylon material. The machine typically consists of a cutting tool, such as a mill or lathe, and a computer-controlled mechanism for controlling the tool’s movement. The CNC machine is programmed with computer-aided design (CAD) software that generates instructions for the machine to follow to produce a specific part.

In Nylon CNC machining, the cutting tool removes material from a block or sheet of Nylon material to produce the desired part shape. The process is highly accurate and repeatable and can produce parts with complex shapes, tight tolerances, and intricate details. The speed, accuracy, and efficiency of Nylon CNC machining make it a popular choice for a wide range of applications, including consumer goods, automotive parts, and medical devices.

The cost of Nylon CNC machining can vary greatly depending on several factors, including:

Part Shape: Complex or intricate designs require more time and resources, resulting in higher costs.

Quantity: Larger parts will often be more cost-effective due to the setup and tooling costs being spread out over many factors.

Provider: The cost of Nylon CNC machining services can vary significantly between providers, so shopping around for the best deal is essential.

Finishing: Additional finishing operations, such as sanding, polishing, or painting, will add to the overall cost of the machining.

The cost of Nylon CNC machining can range from dozens of Dollars or more per part, depending on the above factors. Nylon CNC machining costs not only one part of the overall cost of a finished product. Other prices, such as tooling, shipping, and assembly, should also be considered when budgeting for a project.

Nylon is a cost-effective choice for many applications than other engineering plastics or metals. However, the cost-effectiveness of Nylon CNC machining will depend on the project’s specific requirements, such as part complexity, volume, and finish.

A CNC machine can produce various custom parts for multiple industries and applications. Nylon CNC machining can serve for different industries as below:

Automotive parts include gears, bushings, and other components requiring high wear resistance and low friction.

Industrial parts: Including gears, pulleys, and other components that require high strength, durability, and low weight.

Consumer goods: Including toys, household items, and other products that require lightweight and durable components.

Food processing parts include food-grade gears, bushings, and other components used in food processing equipment.

Medical devices: Including orthopedic devices, prosthetics, and other components that require high strength and biocompatibility.

Nylon is a popular material for CNC machining due to its high strength, low weight, and low friction properties. The CNC machining provides high precision and accuracy, allowing for tight tolerance specifications and intricate designs. Additionally, CNC machining is a cost-effective and efficient method of producing high-volume parts or custom, one-off components.
