CNC machining materials

CNC Machining in ABS

Plastics are another common material used in CNC turning because they are available in many different options, are relatively inexpensive, and have faster machining times. Commonly used plastics include ABS, acrylic, polycarbonate and nylon.

Plastic are commonly used in CNC machining processes.

Plastic materials are widely used in CNC machining thanks to their many excellent properties. Plastics have excellent plasticity and can be molded into parts of various shapes and sizes through processing methods such as heating and pressing. In addition, plastic materials usually have a low density and do not need to worry about corrosion. In addition, plastic is a good insulating material.




CNC machining is suitable for producing parts in metal and plastic materials with excellent mechanical properties, accuracy and repeatability. It is widely used in industries such as automotive manufacturing, aerospace engineering, electronics production, medical device manufacturing, and consumer product development. Complex 3-axis and 5-axis milling is possible.


CNC machining with excellent mechanical performance, high accuracy and repeatability. Suitable for industries that require consistent reliability. High flexibility with the ability to use a wide range of materials.


Limitations in complex geometries compared to 3D printing. CNC machining is a manufacturing method that removes material and may require additional post-processing or other manufacturing techniques.

Popular science information about ABS material

What is ABS?

ABS stands for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene Copolymer and is a common engineering plastic. It consists of three monomers, acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene.

Properties and Advantages?

ABS material has good strength and stiffness, good chemical resistance, high impact resistance, abrasion resistance, and good electrical insulation properties. In addition, ABS material also has good processing performance, can be manufactured into various shapes and sizes of parts by thermoforming, injection moulding and other methods.

Application areas?

Due to the excellent performance of ABS material, it is widely used in many industries. It is commonly used in automotive parts, electronic product shells, home appliances, toys, medical equipment, construction materials and other fields.

Colour and surface treatment of ABS?

ABS material can be made in a variety of colour options by adding pigments. In addition, ABS materials can be subjected to surface treatments such as spraying, plating, silk-screening, etc. to improve appearance and durability.

Environmentally Friendly?

ABS materials can be recycled for the waste materials generated during manufacturing and processing. In addition, the ABS material itself is recyclable and can be reprocessed and reused.
