Machining of plastic

Welcome to the blog of Mecánica Curiel, your machining company in Barcelona, ​​today we are going to talk about the machining of plastic, and its advantages and disadvantages with regard to metal machining.

In our machining company in Barcelona, ​​plastic machining is only a small percentage of all our products, since they are not so much demanded.

Plastic machining is used for economic reasons as it is cheaper but can also be used for technical and space reasons.


¿Plastic or metal?

The main advantages of plastic with regard to metal, which we differentiate in our company of machining in Barcelona, ​​is its low density and the great chemical resistance that it has, being thus a type of machining very resistant to the corrosion, and not only this, but Also have a great absorption of vibrations and noise.

But in our company of machining in Barcelona, ​​we also believe that we must know the disadvantages of plastic, with respect to metal, such as the useful life of plastic machining is less than metal machining and is easier to dilate and it gets hot.
