Acrylic CNC Machining

PMMA stands for Polymethyl Methacrylate, which is a synthetic polymer more commonly known by its brand names, including Perspex, Plexiglas, and Acrylic. PMMA is a transparent thermoplastic that has several characteristics that make it a popular choice for CNC machining.

PMMA is known for its exceptional optical clarity, making it a suitable material for products that require transparency, such as windows, display cases, lenses, and signage. PMMA is relatively easy to machine using CNC (Computer Numerical Control) equipment. It can be cut, milled, drilled, and shaped with precision, making it a preferred choice for intricate and detailed parts. PMMA is often more affordable than some other transparent materials, making it a cost-effective choice for CNC machining.

Advantages Of Using Acrylic For Your Parts

Acrylic's ease of fabrication, lightweight nature, and material strength make it a versatile and safe material choice for a wide range of applications, offering both practical and economic benefits.

Easy to Fabricate and Shape: Acrylic is a thermoplastic that becomes malleable when heated, allowing for easy molding and machining into various shapes.

50% Lighter than Glass: Acrylic stands out as a lightweight alternative to glass, weighing approximately 50% less than a glass piece of the same size. This weight difference is significant, especially in applications where the reduction of load is crucial.

Material Strength: Acrylic is highly durable with over 10 times the impact resistance of glass, ensuring longevity and safety in its applications. When it does break, it fractures into large pieces with dull edges, further enhancing its safety features.

Easy to Maintain: Acrylic parts are known for their ease of maintenance, ensuring they remain in top condition with minimal effort. To maintain the pristine condition of acrylic products, it is recommended to use a wet microfiber cloth for cleaning, ensuring that the cloth is free from any grit or particles that could potentially scratch the surface.
