Machining & Routing
Midland Plastics produces high-quality, custom performance plastic components using advanced 3-axis and 5-axis CNC routing, CNC sawing and machining and milling technologies.
Midland’s 5-Axis routers, with multiple-axis robotic heads, can trim and route parts that are tall or have multiple surfaces and angles, such as vacuum- or pressure-formed parts. In addition, we can use split-beds to allow for improved efficiency in routing, loading and unloading of parts during the routing process.Learn More
Milling or machining employs many of the same features as our routers, but is geared for smaller, more complex parts. When parts are more complex and require multiple tools to produce, Midland uses CNC machining centers. In the machining process, tools are stored within the machining center and tool changes, as well as movements of the drills and cutters, are programmed into the machine. The material is held stationary while the machining center makes the programmed cuts.Learn More
