Specializing in CNC machining of plastic components, Severna was well equipped to fulfill an order to make Ultem® beads for a connector application. Using Ultem® 1000, we manufactured the beads on our Star CNC Swiss Machining Center with a three-step process: drilling six holes on the bolt pattern; drilling a center hole; and trepanning both sides. The finished part had a diameter ranging from .100" down to .070" and a thickness of .030". Severna was able to maintain machining tolerances of ±.0005" throughout the manufacturing process. Burrs were removed by hand and with cryogenic methods. A large inventory and the ability to run lights out, 24 hours a day, enabled Severna to complete and deliver this order on time.

Severna has over 60 years of experience in the manufacture of precise plastic components. To learn more about our machining services, please contact us or see the table below.
