Related Machining Capabilities For Nylon Parts
Nylon Material Introduction
Nylon is a synthetic thermoplastic linear polyamide. It has excellent properties including good mechanical properties, great abrasion resistance, and a low friction coefficient.
There is also an FDA-compliant and USDA-approved grade of nylon, it is resistant to chemicals and hydrocarbons.
Nylon can be mixed with various substances to achieve different variations of nylon, the most popular grades are nylon 6 and nylon 6/6.
When it comes to the CNC machining industry, nylon sheets, rods, and tubes are the most commonly used raw materials.
Applications Of Nylon Machined Parts
Nylon machined parts have several advantages, they are high strength-to-weight ratio, producing less operating noise, good machinability.
Due to these advantages, the parts are wildly used in a lot of applications. Let us take a look at the typical applications.
√ Bearings and Bushings
√ Engine components
√ Rollers and wheels
√ Seals and gaskets
√ Wear plates, pads components
√ Gear components
√ Fastener including screws, nuts, and bolts
√ Commercial and industrial food and beverage industry
√ Plastic injection molding parts
The Machining Processes For Nylon Parts
Nylon is an ideal engineering plastic material when it comes to CNC machining manufacturing.
At RapidDone, we can take more than 10 machining processes to create different nylon parts.
Among them, CNC turning and CNC milling are the two most common methods.
Finishes For Nylon Parts
Same as other plastic machined parts, we can have different finishes for the nylon parts.
The typical types are as-machined, painting, silkscreen, and polish.
The Recommended Machining Tips For Nylon Material
To have a better cutting, there are quite several machining tips.
√ Handle Well For The Nylon Workpiece
Nylon is a plastic material, it is not as rigid as a metal material. Therefore, we need to be careful with the clamping force.
If the clamping force is too high, it might cause mark issues or defamation issues for worse cases.
However, if the clamping force is not enough, it might bring in a vibration issue resulting in a low-quality surface.
√ Use Annealing To A More Precise Cutting
The annealing process is good for eliminating the long strings and wrap-up, it helps get a better cutting with higher precision.
√ Decrease The Cutting Heat
A higher cutting heat can cause a deformation issue.
Try to choose a low spindle speed and a high possible speed for nylon cutting.
This can help to get thick swarf and decrease the cutting heat, avoiding the deformation issue.
