CNC-Routed, Wear-Resistant UHMWPE Parts from Allplastics


Ultra-high Molecular Weight Polyethylene, or UHMWPE for short, is an advanced plastic material with top-of-the-line impact strength and abrasion resistance. This versatile engineering plastic is available in sheets and rods, and its wear resistance and sliding properties make it ideal for many industries, such as materials handling, food preparation, mining, transport and marine construction. Allplastics Engineering recently manufactured a large, 60mm thick UHMWPE component for the mining industry. They then utilised their precision CNC routing facilities to create the elements of the component, which were then welded together to produce the final design.
