Plastics

Versatile, tough and functional, plastics like acrylic and Corian are easy to process with the right CNC tools.

CNC Tooling for Plastics

A specialty material with thousands of uses, plastics like acrylic, foam, compact laminate and Corian are a building and design staple. While plastics were traditionally shaped using heat and moulding, modern CNC machines can transform plastic sheet, slabs and bar stock into functional products and beautiful design features.

Resistant to weather, water and spills, it’s now common to find plastics being put to use by cabinet makers, shopfitters and sign makers. With the help of a 3 axis CNC machine, plastic can be cut, milled and shaped for use as benchtops, wall panelling, furniture and bespoke design elements. Achieving quality results with plastic often requires the use of specially designed tools. For working with plastics of all kinds, Panel Tools provides a range of CNC tooling that delivers smoother finishes, faster feed rates and longer tool lives thanks to our combination of specialty tool materials and diamond like coatings.

The Application

  • Corian

  • Compact Laminate

  • Foams

  • Plexiglass

Corian

Solid Surface’s such as Corian are a popular alternative to stone for countertops due to its strength and resistance to the elements. It’s density and hardness makes it somewhat abrasive to machine. Fortunately, there is a solution, compact laminate and diamond tooling are a match made in heaven. With the correct parameters, machining Corian does not need to be difficult, and we have a diverse range of solutions to cater for any application.
