Machining plastic

When small or medium-sized batches are needed, and the product design is relatively complex, a simple mould may be preferable. Costs are kept low by machining the complex shapes afterwards.

Example 1
A platform for a measuring device has several critical fit tolerances. The platform is machined as SFM product and cooled. The fit tolerances are accurately machined to size in a milling process.

Example 2
A housing for a blood analysis device comes in two versions. The customer wants to retain as much flexibility as possible and orders as needs require. Pekago keeps the semi-finished product in stock and mills several slots and holes according to the version ordered. The mould does not have any slots and is therefore relatively inexpensive. The customer has maximum flexibility.

Pekago has various milling and drilling machines to effect the required operations, even on large products.
