Cnc Machining For Acrylic – What Is Acrylic Cnc Machining

Acrylic, also known as PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) or Plexiglas, Acrylic comes in different grades and colors. The choice of acrylic will depend on the project requirements—whether it’s transparent, colored, UV-resistant, etc,is a thermoplastic widely used in various industries due to its transparency, durability, and versatility.CNC machining for acrylic involves using computer numerical control (CNC) technology to precisely cut, carve, or mill acrylic material into desired shapes, sizes, and designs.

CNC machining is highly precise and efficient for acrylic, offering the ability to create intricate designs and achieve tight tolerances. However, it requires expertise in CNC programming, material properties, and machine operation to produce high-quality acrylic parts or products.

Be-Cu Prototype Inc has experienced CNC machinists or experts familiar with acrylic machining to optimize the process and achieve your desired results.

If you’re looking for a readily available plastic with a high strength-to-weight ratio and good machinability, Plexiglass could be the right choice for your project.

Be-Cu Prototype Co. specializes in Acrylic CNC Machining(Acrylic CNC Milling,Acrylic CNC Turning and Acrylic 5 Axis Machining).

CNC Milling Acrylic

CNC milling acrylic refers to the process of using a computer numerical control (CNC) machine to precisely shape, carve, or cut acrylic material into specific designs, shapes, or parts.

  • 3-axis CNC Milling: Produce the most common geometries and are best suited for designs that do not require multiple rotations of the acrylic block. Our 3-axis milling service are typically used to drill holes, mill slots, or machine previse edges.
  • 4-axis CNC Milling: Allow access to an additional side of the acrylic block, allowing the milling of holes, slots, and other features to the side of a acrylic parts.
  • 5-axis CNC Milling: Provide the highest precision and use multidimensional rotation to allow access to all sides of a acrylic block, allowing the creation of intricate details and complex designs.

CNC Turning Acrylic

CNC Turning Acrylic

CNC turning acrylic refers to the process of using a computer numerical control (CNC) lathe machine to shape acrylic material into cylindrical or symmetrical parts by rotating the material against cutting tools.

  • At Be-Cu Prototype Inc, we operate a full complement of Acrylic CNC turning equipment, ranging from basic 2- and 3-axis lathes to a revolutionary 5-axis mazak mill-turn center.
  • The 5-axis mazak mill-turn center combines precision lathe with CNC mill to machine complex parts in a single setup. It makes unattended machining possible and significantly decreases lead times. Be-Cu is one of the only acrylic manufacturer that has an 5-axis mill-turn center. You will be hard-pressed to find and experience the benefits of this innovative technology anywhere else.

Acrylic Grades We Work With

There are several grades and types of acrylic that are commonly used in various industries and applications. The choice of acrylic grade depends on the specific requirements of the project, considering factors such as transparency, impact resistance, UV stability, chemical resistance, and more. Some of the commonly used acrylic grades include:


CNC Machining Extruded Acrylic

This is a cost-effective option with good optical clarity. Extruded acrylic is often used for general-purpose applications where high optical quality is not critical.

CNC Machining Cast Acrylic

Known for its superior optical clarity, cast acrylic offers better chemical resistance, machining capabilities, and surface finish compared to extruded acrylic. It is used in applications requiring high visual clarity, such as signage, displays, and architectural applications.

CNC Machining Impact-Modified Acrylic

This type of acrylic is formulated to enhance impact resistance while retaining optical clarity. It is suitable for applications where durability against impacts is crucial, such as machine guards, safety glazing, and outdoor signs.

CNC Machining Colored Acrylic

Acrylic sheets can be manufactured in various colors and opacities, offering a wide range of design possibilities. Colored acrylics are used for aesthetic purposes in applications like decorative panels, retail displays, and artistic installations.

CNC Machining UV-Resistant Acrylic

Acrylic formulations with UV stabilization additives are used in outdoor applications to prevent yellowing or degradation caused by exposure to sunlight. These are commonly used in outdoor signage, architectural installations, and marine applications.

CNC Machining Flame-Retardant Acrylic

Acrylic materials with flame-retardant properties are used in applications where fire safety is a concern, such as in electronics, transportation, and construction.

When choosing an acrylic grade for CNC machining or any other application, it’s essential to consider the specific properties required for the project, including mechanical strength, optical clarity, weatherability, chemical resistance, and regulatory compliance if applicable.

Working with Be-Cu Prototype Inc who understands the different acrylic grades and their properties can help in selecting the most suitable material for your specific project needs. Additionally, testing prototypes or samples may be beneficial to ensure the chosen acrylic grade meets the desired performance criteria.
