What is PVC Machining?
PVC machining is the subtractive processing of PVC sheets or rods by milling and turning. Program according to 3D drawings, select the appropriate processing technology, and finally make the part model into 3D drawings. PVC is easily deformed and requires repeated milling during the production process.
What does pvc material meaning, Pvc is also a kind of plastic material with flame retardant, corrosion resistance and low humidity functions. Due to its excellent processing characteristics and high cost performance, it can be processed by various processing methods such as 3D printing, CNC processing, and injection molding.

Advantages of PVC Machining
PVC material has excellent properties such as insulation, corrosion resistance, water resistance, high pressure resistance, easy access, low cost, long service life, good toughness, and UV resistance. A quick understanding of the characteristics of PVC material can effectively help to choose the required processing technology, formulate a suitable processing plan, and complete the processing needs. The selection of polyvinyl chloride PVC processing through these characteristics is conducive to improving its quality, making the processing conditions flexible and feasible, thereby effectively reducing labor and processing costs.
Application of PVC Machining industris
As one of the thermoplastic polymers with good impact resistance and insulation, PVC plastic is more malleable than other processing materials.Because of its excellent performance, people usually choose PVC processing when processing parts. Therefore, PVC Plastic parts are also widely used in different industries.
Because of its excellent performance, people usually choose polyvinyl chloride PVC machining when processing parts.The following are the applications of PVC machining parts in various fields:
Medical: catheters, inflatable splints, breathing masks, pharmaceutical packaging
Construction: floors, foam boards, doors and windows, wall panels
Automotive: roof, instrument panel, seat, armrest, door panel
Surface Finish Of PVC
We will provide surface finishing technology for polyvinyl chloride PCV machining to meet other requirements such as anti-corrosion, wear-resistant, and decoration.The surface treatment process has the following types:
Polishing PVC processed parts can obtain a smooth feel and glossy surface.
Labels such as text, monograms, and serial numbers can make PVC Machining parts play a role in identification and tracking in later distribution.
Create textured or raised patterns on the surface of PVC plastic parts to improve surface grip and enhance wear resistance.
Use compressed air to accelerate the abrasive grain flow (such as glass beads, sand, etc.) and spray it onto the surface to remove pollutants and smooth the surface.
Coating and painting:
Coating or painting PVC plastic processed parts provides additional protection to the surface from UV rays and other environmental elements such as chemicals.

PVC Machining Technologies
3D printing technology starts by designing a digital 3D model of the PVC machined part and then sending the data to a 3D printer. The printer uses a computer-controlled laser to melt and fuse layers of PVC material layer by layer until the final machined part is complete.This technology enables precise control over the size and shape of the final machined part.It is important to note that complex machined parts may require multiple prints and assemblies due to limited print volumes.
It is a material removal process commonly used in PVC processing.Machining creates the desired shape or size by removing material from solid blocks or sheets of PVC material using a rotary cutting tool with multiple sharp edges.The CNC milling can use for roughing, finishing, contouring, and other PVC processing.
Injection molding is a manufacturing process used in PVC processing to produce parts with high precision and complex shapes.Injection molding is done by melting PVC particles, injecting them into the mold cavity under high pressure, cooling and solidifying them, and then processing them to form the desired shape.It is worth noting that the processing technology can be automated and highly repeatable, which is very suitable for large-scale processing of PVC components and improving production efficiency.
Turning is another material removal process commonly used in PVC machining.Use a rotary cutting tool to remove material from a rotating PVC workpiece to create the shape or feature of the desired machined part.Compared with milling technology, turning technology is suitable for making round PVC machined parts, while milling technology can process machined parts with different characteristics and complex shapes.
