Nylon is one of the most popular polymers due to its properties and the ease of machining and fabricating it. It exhibits a low coefficient of friction, high abrasion resistance, and high wear properties. Worthy Hardware is a leading machine shop and fabricator, specializing in custom nylon parts for industrial applications. With over 25 years of experience, we have the technical and manufacturing expertise to produce precision custom nylon parts for that meet or exceed your specifications.

What is CNC Machining Nylon?

Polyamide 6 (Nylon 6) is an important engineering plastic. Due to its non-toxic, lightweight, excellent mechanical strength, wear resistance and good corrosion resistance, nylon is widely used in the manufacturing of bearings, gears, pump blades, and other nylon parts. Polyamide has high strength after melt spinning and can be used for various medical and knitwear products. CNC machining nylon is a process that applies computer-controlled digital technology to remove the extra material and complete any necessary cutting, turning or milling. This can be done with machine tools depending on what's needed for your specific programmings before getting an end product from nylon in its final form.

What are the benefits of CNC Machining Nylon?

1) High mechanical strength, good toughness, with high tensile and compressive strength.

2) Fatigue resistance is outstanding, the parts can still maintain the original mechanical strength after repeated bending.

3) High softening point, heat resistant

4) Smooth surface, small coefficient of friction, wear-resistant.

5) Corrosion resistance, as a packaging material for lubricants, fuel, etc.

Justin, CEO of a lighting company

I inspected the top two pieces of all five boxes. Everything is beautiful! BEAUTIFUL! You remove so much stress from my shoulders. I know that when we pay you to manufacture a product, it will be made perfectly. The glass bead blasting and anodizing is always beautiful. I am so very happy! You make it easier for us to run our business. There is no trouble! With most factories, I have a moment of fear before I open their boxes. Will the components be made correctly? Do they care about quality? It is often a war. And Dennis has to fight the war, treating most factories like small children! But, not your company. You’re company is world-class. You make beautiful components!Thank you very much for your hard work. We will work together for many lifetimes!

David, General manager for a family owned business

I’ve been working with Chinese manufacturers since 2004 and had some really unfortunate partnerships until 2012 when we partnered with Worthy Hardware. At first,we only gave them small orders to test and make the start. However,their response speed was very fast ,and their engineers help us improved our designs more simple, this helped us reduce a lot of cost.Our cooperate is more and more stable! We trust Worthy Hardware always ,very responsible. Your guys are great! .Worthy Hardware is by far my favorite, because of the way they handle business and the quality of what they make.If you are from USA and would like to know more about Worthy Hardware,i would be very happy to be as an endorsement.


CNC Machining Nylon FAQ

1.How to CNC machine Nylon?

CNC machine nylon is similar to machining aluminum materials. It requires very sharp cutting tool and high polished rake surface. Compared with aluminum materials, the cutting speed should not be too high and the feed rate should be large. You can also use aluminum alloy special turning blades to cnc machine plastics. Don't move the knife too slowly, otherwise the plastic will melt.
