Today in plastic machining paradise, we are chucking on some large diameter black acetal copolymer to produce robotics components. The rod shown is 7″ in diameter but this job will take us all the way to 10″ material before completion. Why acetal you ask? Great question! Acetal exhibits high strength, low friction, excellent dimensional stability, low moisture absorption, and great machinability. This material is a great choice for components such as bearings, bushings, rollers, and gears due to its strength and wear resistance properties. PlasTex Precision Manufacturing in Houston, TX specializes in providing machined plastic solutions to our customers. How can we help you today?
