ABS CNC Machining

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is a durable and versatile thermoplastic. It's composed of three monomers and is commonly used in products like toys, automotive parts, and electronics casings due to its easy molding and finishing capabilities.

ABS CNC Machining involves using computer-controlled machinery to shape the thermoplastic polymer ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene). ABS is popular due to its balance of toughness and heat resistance. The CNC process ensures precision, repeatability, and efficiency in shaping ABS for various applications like prototyping, electronics enclosures, and automotive parts. Post-machining, ABS parts can undergo processes like sanding or painting for finishing touches.

ABS At a Glance

Application CNC machining produces parts with excellent mechanical properties, accuracy and repeatability from metal and plastic. 3-axis & 5-axis CNC milling available.
Advantages Excellent mechanical properties,High accuracy & repeatabillity
Weaknesses Greater geometry restrictions than 3D printing
Lead Time Typically, it takes a minimum of 3 days to produce magnesium parts, and this duration may extend for complex or internationally sourced components.
Price $$$
Tolerances a tolerance of about 0.005 inches (0.13mm) is generally attainable.
Wall Thickness The minimum wall thickness for magnesium parts is approximately 0.80 mm (about 0.03 inches). This value might vary based on the ratio of wall thickness to planar dimension.
Max part size 200 x 80 x 100 cm

Finishes and Post-Processing Options

When collaborating with our ABS CNC part suppliers, you'll primarily find beige (natural) and black options. Specific colors can be sourced upon request.

As Machined: CNC ABS parts are machined to specifications with minor tool marks or swirls on the surface of the material.

Bead Blasting: Bead blasting uses fine glass beads under high pressure to give ABS parts a matte finish. This method reduces shine and offers a textured appearance. However, care is needed to avoid damaging detailed features and ensure even coverage. Post-blasting, parts might require cleaning to remove any bead residue.

ABS CNC Machining FAQs

  • Why is ABS preferred in CNC machining?

    ABS is easy to machine, has a good balance of mechanical properties, and accepts finishes well, making it popular for CNC machining.

  • Can ABS parts be painted?

    Yes, ABS parts accept paint well, often after a light sanding or priming.

  • How does bead blasting affect the finish of ABS parts?

    Bead blasting gives ABS parts a matte, textured appearance, but care should be taken to avoid damaging fine details.

  • What colors are standard for machined ABS?

    Typically, beige (natural) and black are standard, but custom colors can be sourced.

  • Is ABS biodegradable?

    No, ABS is not biodegradable and can persist in the environment for a long time.

  • How does ABS compare to PLA in 3D printing?

    ABS is tougher and more heat-resistant, but it requires a heated bed for printing. PLA is biodegradable and easier to print with but is less durable than ABS.
