Thermoplastic Fabrication and Machining

The thermoplastics include some of the most commonly known plastics like acrylic (Plexiglas®) and polycarbonate (Lexan®), acetal (Delrin®), nylon, polyethylene, polypropylene and Teflon®. Here, too, some of the brand names have become synonymous with the generic names, much to the delight of certain manufacturers!

Within each of these generic groups are many different formulations for specific applications. For example, nylon is a tough material that is often used as a replacement for materials from rubber to metal. Nylon can be formulated with Kevlar (Hydlar Z™) to make it extremely wear resistant. Sometimes nylon is filled with molybdenum disulphide (Nylatron® GS) for improved strength and rigidity or reinforced with glass for improved load and frictional characteristics. K&E machines virtually all of the top manufacturers' thermoplastics. Plastics machined by K&E are customized to your needs using our specialized equipment.
