Plastic milling - a complement to injection molding?

Variety of variants with low investment

In general, our motto is: "Plastic injection molding is one of the most efficient and cost-effective processes for manufacturing of high complex components in just one production step, without further post-processing". Of course, we try to follow this line consistently, but sometimes you have to be prepared to make exceptions.

This is the case, for example, when several variants of a basic article are required in small quantities. A common application is to create an injection mold for a plastic chassis in order to produce larger series quantities. If additional housing variants, e.g. with apertures for plug-in connections, are additionally required in small quantities, these can be machined and produced subsequently without high investment costs.

Gebr. Schwarz has integrated this process for many years now. As a result, project investments can be kept low and offering at the same time a high level of variety. The machining area was supplemented with an additional CNC milling machine (POS mill CE 1000) at the beginning of 2021 and is used at SCHWRAZ in 3-shift operation around the clock. With a table size of 1,200 x 600 mm, we are able to machine a wide range, from small to large.
