With five state of the art machining technology centres across Australia and New Zealand, Dotmar EPP can produce machined plastic parts and custom plastic parts for a wide range of applications.
The company produces only engineering plastics and polyurethanes at these technology centres. This includes materials such as:
- Ultem PEI
- Acrylic (Perspex)
- Safeguard Polycarbonate sheet
- Nylon (Ertalon); and
- Acetal (Ertacetal).
Dotmar EPP also machines different grades of exotic plastics including Vespel on a regular basis.
Plastic machined parts are lightweight and used where chemical resistance, electrical resistance, quietness or extreme wear resistance is required.
They are commonly used as replacements for metallic OEM parts, or as a newly developed part to improve machine performance. Components machined include:
- thrust washers
- crane sheaves
- pulleys and wear strips; and
- conveyor curves.
The company works with clients in maintaining Kanban stock levels to ensure just in time delivery, enabling it to offer shortened lead times and improved inventory efficiency and cost management.
