Plastic Turned Parts Ltd specialises in engineered plastic components such as acetal, acrylic, delrin, HDPE, nylon, PCTFE, peek, polycarbonate, polypropylene, PTFE, rulon, torlon and UHMWPE.
Our incredibly talented team of engineers have many years of experience in the industry and work with skill and accuracy to create outstanding results.
Here at Plastic Turned Parts Ltd we are continually researching the industry and developing our business in order to meet customer demand. We have recently invested a quarter of a million pounds into new machinery to complement our existing range. We now have the facilities and capabilities to precision engineer products up to 200mm with a bar fed diameter of 65mm. Our engineers also work with multi-tasking machinery that can turn, drill and mill thus saving and money on moving from one production area to another.
Plastic Turned Parts Ltd can manufacture one-off straightforward pieces as well as large batch, highly complex components. Our excellent facilities, combined with our competent and reliable services, enable us to complete projects in fast turn-around times to the highest standards.
Please contact our friendly team at Plastic Turned Parts Ltd with your requirements or to find out more about our fantastic services.
Acetal, also known as Polyoxymethylene, is a thermoplastic that we use to engineer precision parts requiring high stiffness, low friction and dimensional stability. Acetal is produced by a range of chemical firms using slightly different formulas and may be recognised in the industry under the names Delrin, Celcon or Hostaform. Acetal extruded bar or sheet can be turned, milled and drilled and is available in a range of colours.
We use the latest CNC technology to precision turn acrylic parts in-house. All work is carried out by our experienced and highly skilled engineers. Please contact us at Plastic Turned Parts Ltd for further information or with your engineering requirements. We offer high quality solutions at competitive prices.
Here at Plastic Turned Parts Ltd we have an excellent understanding of the qualities of plastics and can offer technical advice and information whenever needed. Amongst the many types of plastics we work with is Acetal Acrylic Delrin. Delrin offers a range of advantages such as creep resistance, strength, stiffness, toughness, abrasion resistance, low wear/ low friction, dimensional stability and more. Delrin is widely used for the manufacture of parts/ applications including: aerosol valves, conveyor belts, rollers, sliding devices, automotive fuel systems and many more.
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is a polyethylene thermoplastic made from petroleum. This material is recognised by its recycling symbol, number ‘2.’ HDPE is resistant to a range of solvents and is therefore used to manufacture a wide range of applications such as bottle caps, food storage containers, milk jugs, folding chairs and tables, geothermal heat transfer piping systems, plastic bags, telecom ducts, plastic lumber, water pipes and many more.
Nylon is a generic designation of the family of synthetic polymers known as polyamides. It is one of the most commonly used polymers today. Solid nylon is widely used for the manufacture of mechanical parts such as machine screws and gears. Engineering grade nylon is processed by extrusion, casting and injection molding.
PCTFE, or Polychlorotrifluoroethylene as it is also known, is similar to PTFE except it is a homopolymer of the monomer CTFE instead of tetrafluoroethylene. PCTFE has the lowest water vapour transmission rate of any plastic. It is characterised by its high tensile strength and is non-flammable with heat resistance up to 175 degrees C. PCTFE is widely used for applications such as: moisture barriers in pharmaceutical blister packaging, water vapour barrier for protecting coatings in electroluminescent lamps and to protect liquid crystal display panels that are sensitive to moisture.
We are pleased to engineer PEEK (otherwise known as Polyetheretherketone) plastics. Please contact us at Plastic Turned Parts Ltd with your machining requirements or for further information about our services and capabilities. We look forward to hearing from you.
Polycarbonate (PC) is known by various trademark names such as Lexan, Makrolon, Makroclear and more. This group of thermoplastic polymers is easily engineered, molded and thermoformed and as such is used for the manufacture of a wide range of applications.
Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic polymer that is used for a wide range of applications such as packaging and labelling, textiles, stationery, plastic parts, automotive components and more. It is also widely used for manufacturing piping systems, especially those that require strength and rigidity. Polypropylene is often chosen for its resistance to corrosion and chemical leaching, and resilience against most forms of physical damage including impact and freezing.
PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene that is widely known under the brand name Teflon. This thermoplastic polymer is widely used for applications where sliding parts are needed such as bearings, gears, slide plates and more. We provide PTFE turned parts to customer specifications in fast turn around times. Plastic Turned Parts Ltd is ISO 9001 Certified.
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is the third most commonly produced plastic. It is widely used in the construction industry as it is stronger and cheaper than other traditional alternatives such as copper and ductile iron. PVC features biological and chemical resistance and is used for a variety of applications including sewerage pipes and window and door frames.
Rulon® is the brand name for a group of PTFE plastics manufactured by Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics. Rulon® plastics are widely recognised for their low coefficient friction, excellent abrasion resistance, wide range of operating temperatures and chemical inertness. Please contact us to find out more about Rulon® plastics.
Torlon is the brand name for polyamide-imides produced by Solvay Advanced Polymers. Polyamide-imides feature a synergy of properties from polyamides and polyimides including high strength, melt processibility, exceptionally high heat capability and broad chemical resistance. Torlon products are widely used in gas related applications due to their high temperature and chemical resistance properties.
UHMWPE (ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene) is a subset of the thermoplastic polyethylene. It is highly resistant to corrosive chemicals apart from oxidising acids. It also has extremely low moisture absorption, and a very low coefficient of friction.
We have always maintained that our most important resource is our people. Whilst this will never change, we fully appreciate the importance of quality tools. We continue to improve and update our manufacturing facilities and in the last year added three new machines, which join our extensive plant lists of sliding and fixed head CNC technology. The all new plant boast multi-tasking capabilities and enable us to produce precision engineered parts up to 200mm, with a bar-fed diameter of 65mm. Turning, drilling and milling can take place in just a singe set up and use up to 32 tools. Thus, our expertise and knowledgeable manpower combines with state of the art machinery to assure you of the best solution every time.
We work exclusively with plastic and have an in-depth knowledge of the qualities and capabilities of all different sorts of plastic, of which there are a great many. We are happy to share our expertise and knowledge with you at any time and offer advice as needed. Some general engineering companies, working with various different materials, run the risk of contamination with other products. As we turn only plastic, you can be assured this will never happen with Plastic Turned Parts.
