POM Prototype Machining
Polyoxymethylene (POM) is a thermoplastic material also known as acetal. It is one material that thermoplastic crystalline polymer. It is called"super steel"or "sai steel". POM is supplied in a granulated form and, with heat and pressure, can be molded into a desired shape. POM can be injection molded as well as rotational and blow molded. It can also be extruded into lengths of rectangular or round bars which can be used for machining.
Advantage of POM material CNC Machining parts:
●High mechanical strength and rigidity;
●Highest fatigue strength;
●Environmental resistance and organic solvability strong
●Widely used temperature range (- 40 ℃ ~ 120 ℃)
●Good electrical properties& insulation
●Good lubrication and abrasion
And for now, the cost of POM which is less than the others engineering plastic, and is replacing some of traditionally metal materials to machining the precision conpoments. Such as: Aluminum, Brass, Steel and Zinc etc. Since its advent, POM has been widely used in electronic electrical, mechanical, instrument, daily light industry, automobile, building materials, agriculture and so on. In many new areas, such as medical technology and sports equipment, POM has also shown better growth.
POM is an engineering material used in parts that require precision. Applications for POM include high performance components such as gear and fasteners (screws, nuts, washers, spacers, etc.). It is also used in other applications such as ski bindings, yoyos, electronic cigarettes, watch bracelets, zippers, insulin pens, and metered dose inhalers. It is used in musical instruments for picks and instrument mouthpieces, in the food industry in applications like milk pumps and coffee spigots, and also as a solvent for perfumes and as a synthetic flavoring ingredient.
The Challenges Of Machining POM
The POM is an elastic material which is very resilient. When cutting, the parts that are exposed to the tool will be deformed by the elasticity of the material, when the tool is gone, the area of the cutting will be caused some deformation automatically.How to effectively control the size of POM CNC Machining parts and avoiding the deformation or reduce deformation. As one professional Precision CNC Machining manufacturer, Creating way will get you the best choice and proposals on this.

CNC Machining Service
At QC Mold, we use advanced equipment to offer you a variety of CNC machining services including milling, turning, EDM and wire EDM, surface grinding and much more. Using our imported 3, 4 and 5-axis CNC machining centers, our skilled machinists can make turned and milled parts using a wide range of plastic and metal materials.
Whether you require a one off model for fit and function, a small batch run for marketing and testing or low volume production QiChuang has the solution for you.
CNC milling is used to apply a machined surface finish on plastic or metal or for creating complex 3D shapes.
Our CNC lathes enable high speed and quality turning of both plastics and metals. The turning process allows for complex external geometries and internal bores to be generated. Our turning capacity is available for prototypes through to low-volume production.
EDM / Wire EDM And Surface Grinding
EDM (electrical discharge machining) is a method for cutting pockets, holes, and other shapes into hardened steel, as well as imparting a surface texture to the internal cavities of mold tools. A sacrificial electrode in an electrolyte bath discharges a high-powered electric spark to erode very hard materials that would be difficult or impossible to do with any other method. Square pocket holes are often created with this method.
With wire EDM, a copper wire is continuously fed between two spools. When electrically charged, it’s able to cut through hardened tool steels quickly and accurately.
At QICHUANG, we also offer surface grinding services. When surface grinding the work piece is held stationary on a horizontal plate. The surface grinding wheel is computer controlled to abrade the work piece to a precise depth.
Our engineers are experts in achieving the perfect finish for your product. With painting, vapor polishing, sanding, anodizing and many other services to choose from, you can create the exact look you want.Anodizing, Painting, Pad Printing, Color Matching, Sanding and Polishing, Vapor Polishing, Blasting
