GM Nameplate’s Elite Plastics division now features plastic machining capabilities.  While Elite Plastics has always been able to do some plastic machining work, they re-organized and now have a dedicated machining area. This new capability offers numerous benefits to customers that you can read about in our blog next week.

Plastic machining is ideal for secondary machining of injection molded parts. For injection molded parts that need to be modified for another use, using the machining capabilities is a cost effective solution that doesn’t require the need for an additional tool.

The new capability means that Elite Plastics and GM Nameplate can offers greater control over part quality and production process. Some uses of machining include de-gating, taping holes, forming threads and faster prototyping. It is even possible to machine parts simply from a block of plastic.
