At RapidDone, we provide a world-class Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene CNC machining service. Over the year, our machinists have created several thousand high-quality UHMW products for several industry partners, giving us a sterling reputation.
So, if you’re looking for a vendor to fulfill your high volume or small-batch UHMW product order, you can contact us. We can provide the exact services you need.
At RapidDone, our machine shop has different CNC machines that enable us to deliver high-quality CNC machining services to our customers.
UHMW CNC Milling
CNC Milling machines are the backbone of our UHMW manufacturing operations. We have several 3-axis CNC machines available for typical milling projects. We also use our top-notch 4 and 5-axis machines to create more complex products from blank HWMW sheet material.
UHMW plastics are used to create various circular products like bushings, bearing, pipe fittings, etc. At the RapidDone shopfloor, we can make these circular features accurately and cost-effectively with uhmw rob materials.
We have several Swiss machines on our shop floor that can machine miniature, slender UHMW parts to high accuracy. These machines can perform many functions like drilling, knurling, etc., to create intricate designs out of UHMW materials.
Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene is a high-grade thermoplastic material. It is highly impacts and abrasion-resistant while also having a high internal strength.
For CNC machining process, it is available in a wide variety of colors and grades, it has both sheet shape and rod shape for raw materials.
RapidDone can achieve different surface finishes on the cnc machined UHMW parts.
Painting (powder coating)
Thanks to the excellent physical properties, UHMW cnc machined parts can find several applications in many industries.
√ Food Handling and Processing Equipment
UHMW is certified food safe by the USDA and FDA so that you can use it in the food and beverage industries.
√ High Wear Parts
UHMW parts are highly resistant to wear and abrasion, so engineers can use them in products that operate under friction. Examples include gears, sprockets, wear plates, bushings, etc.
√ Corrosion-Resistant Components
UHMW components are corrosion resistant, and they have low porosity, making them perfect for adverse or harsh chemical environments. They are used in the marine industry, wastewater treatment facilities, chemical tanks, etc.
Tips for Machining UHMW Parts
To get the best possible UHMW parts with cnc machining process, we follow a series of tips.
Make sure your part’s walls have a thickness of at least 1.5mm.
Avoid sharp internal corners in your design.
Use high-pressure air blowing instead of water and petroleum-based coolant for the best surface finish.
Always use sharp, fresh cutting tools (tungsten carbide) to attain the best tolerances.
Machine the part in short time intervals to reduce heat buildup, which can lead to melting.
Ensure the part is appropriately and securely clamped to avoid chatter marks stemming from vibrations.
A top-notch CNC machining vendor like RapidDone can be the difference-maker for your UHMW product. We have years of experience working with various plastics, and we would love to use this to help bring your products to life.
