Plastic threading or thread cutting is a process of forming helical or spiral grooves on plastic surfaces. The threads are created on the plastic surface in order to interlock two or more parts. Due to threading, only two components can be fastened or screwed-in or screwed-out. The plastic assemblies with multiple parts need threads to fasten the components. However, there is a wide range of plastic materials available, and the same plastic threading does not work for all materials. Therefore, the techniques of threading for plastic parts differ according to the type of plastic material, type of products, type of threading, and many more. This is why the process of plastic threading is a complex one. In spite of the complexity, Ehren-Haus offers plastic components threading services. Our manufacturing capabilities and engineering expertise coupled with a vast experience enable us to meet the challenging requirements of complex threading projects easily.
Ehren-Haus’ Plastic Parts Threading Capabilities
Since plastic products may be made of engineered plastics, thermoforms, thermosets, acrylic, and many more. Each type of plastic has its own suseptability to different machining processes. We perform CNC threading to thread various plastic parts. CNC plastic threading is also known as single point threading. To perform single-point threading with CNC machines, we use an indexable tool to cut and form the helical grooves. Since threading is a hybrid of cutting and forming processes, it is a challenge to maintain precision in threading specifications such as pitch, thread depth, etc. However, CNC machining allows controlled feed rate and spindle revolution, which results in fine threading.
By using CNC threading, we are capable of large dimensional and minute threading. Also, using CNC for plastic parts threading allows us to opt for the following types of threading.
