CNC Machining in Nylon/Polyamide

Nylon, also known as polyamide, is often used as a substitute for low-strength metals like steel, copper, iron, etc in the CNC machining process to produce CNC machined nylon parts.

CNC Machining in Nylon/Polyamide

Nylon CNC machining is a method using machine tools to remove the excess materials from nylon stocks and execute certain machining processes depending on the computer programming, and then create the desired nylon components. Nylon machined parts play an essential role in the manufacturing of automobiles, electrical, chemical equipment, and so on, due to their high resistance to chemical and abrasion, and good rigidity and toughness. Besides, it is an ideal option for producing pump blades, gears, and bearings because of its excellent corrosion resistance, wear resistance, lightweight, and non-toxic. As its hardness can be strengthened by melt spinning, nylon is also widely applied to form a various array of knitwear and medical products.

Nylon FAQs

Nylon can be used as electrical insulation. It is light and provides high tensile strength and low friction. This material doesn’t burn - it just melts.

There is no metal in nylon. It is a strong, rigid engineered synthetic thermoplastic linear polyamide. Nylon is one of the most popular plastics as CNC machining materials to replace low-strength metals.

Nylon 6/6 has a PSI of 11.2000. It is the most commonly used of the nylon family of plastics, however, glass-filled nylon is stronger with 13,500 PSI. It possesses many great properties such as high stiffness, strength, hardness, toughness, and dimensional stability. This material can be found in assemblies that require mechanical damping or electrical isolation. Common applications include medical equipment, electrical enclosures, washers, and aerospace parts.

Nylon, as a thermoplastic, can be molded into various shapes through thermoforming. While nylon can be extruded, injection molded, and formed into fibers for ropes and fabrics, it has advantages when manufactured via CNC machining. Nylon has excellent thermal, mechanical and chemical resistance when cut from solid materials.
