How It Works
CNC machining is a subtractive manufacturing process that uses computer-controlled, rotating cutting tools like end mills, drills and turning tools to remove material from a solid block of material. Much like in sculpture, what you’re left with is the finished product!
The CNC machines are guided by digital design files, which direct how to shape raw material (or “workpiece”). This can be done with a variety of materials, including: most plastics and metals.
From start to finish, Hometown Plastics believes in utilizing high-quality materials and craftsmanship along with the right tools to manufacture the best possible products.
First, we turn your idea or blueprint into a digital design utilizing CAD/CAM software that the CNC machinery can interpret. This will be the foundation of production for your part.
Next you choose your material and other specs. Our CNC turning services can be applied to many materials, making it ideal to produce prototype parts as well as tooling and fixtures for plastic injection molds.
After the prototype sample parts are approved and refined, we save the files and bulk produce your piece or part as needed! We are a truly boutique fabrication shop and we do single runs as well as mass production.
