How to CNC machining Nylon?



Step 1. Convert the CAD file into a language that CNC machines can work with, that's G-code.


Step 2. The operator will place the nylon workpiece that is cut to a specific size on the machine bed. Then it is time to mount the nylon workpiece on the machined bed or by a vice.


Step 3. As the computer controls the CNC cutting tools to move to the pre-set coordinates, so precise positioning and alignment of the nylon workpiece is significant to manufacture high-accuracy parts. Special metrology tools, probes, for instance, are ideal solutions for this step.


Step 4. Then, the nylon workpiece is ready for machining. The machine uses professional cutting tools and rotating the at high speeds to remove material from the workpiece. However, at the very first steps, the machine removes at a relatively low speed and accuracy to gain an approximate geometry.


Step 5. Sometimes, the model is not being to achieve full features by single setup from the cutting tools, then to flip the nylon workpiece is necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How much does it cost to CNC machining nylon parts?

Prices are based on the structure of the part, order volume, machining processes, etc. You can use our instant quoting engine to get price, or you can email hello@wenext.com for more information.

2. What is nylon CNC machining?

Nylon (PA) CNC machining is the process of cutting and removing excess materials on the nylon workpiece until the final object with desired geometries.

3. What kind of finishes are possible with nylon CNC machining?

We provide various surface finishing options, including as machined, polishing, sandblasting, etc. Please check details Here.

4. What is nylon?

Nylon is a silk-like thermoplastic, generally made from petroleum, that can be melt-processed into fibers, films, or shapes.  Nylon polymers can be mixed with a wide variety of additives to achieve many different property variations.

5. Is nylon hard to machine?

Nylon offers good machinability and tight tolerances due to its high strength, toughness and dimensional stability.

6. Is nylon flammable?

Yes, nylon is flammable. When nylon catches fire, it melts before burning.
