CNC Plastic Machining

We offer precision CNC plastic machining, milling and routing for a variety of materials including phenolic-, glass and polyester laminates, vulcanized fiber, PVC, nylon, teflon, acrylics, lexan, plexiglas, Delrin, UHMW and many more. K&E has been providing precision CNC plastic machining, milling and routing of non-metallic materials for a variety of industries for over 47 years.

At K&E we understand that attention to detail is of utmost importance when custom machining thermosets and thermoplastics. We use only the highest-rated materials and state of the art CNC plastic machining equipment to ensure the highest quality parts possible. At K&E we aim to utilize the latest in technology to provide the best services for our customers.

MasterCam and SolidWorks

Our wide variety of CNC machines are programmed through MasterCam X and SolidWorks, the latest version of the most widely used CAD/CAM software on the market. Our expert programmers are able to convert a wide variety of electronic files including AutoCAD, Iges and Solidworks into CNC programs that produce the desired parts in the most efficient and quickest fashion. If electronic files aren't available, our programmers can quickly convert a hard copy drawing into an onscreen model from which the necessary tool paths and operations are extracted. Either way, MasterCam and SolidWorks programming allows K&E to produce precision parts correctly time after time.

The K&E stable of CNC Vertical Milling Centers, Gantry Routers and Lathes are all wirelessly linked to the MasterCam and SolidWorks programming center so that the machine operators can easily pull down the programs they need when they need them. Any program editing or improvements that make take place on the shop floor can be feed back to the source for future use. Thus the expertise of our machine operators and MasterCam and SolidWorks programmers work together for the benefit of our customers and their parts.

E2 Shop System

K&E uses E2 Job Shop Control software for all of our operations from order-taking to shop floor control to employee attendance to billing. By combining our office and shop floor functions into this powerful software package we are able to manage our orders in the most efficient and timely manner. The program includes a full accounting package in addition to its shop management functions.
