Using the most up to date equipment and technology, Cut My Plastic is able to produce high volume capacity routing services and fast delivery without compromising on quality. Plastic routing services are available on a wide range of materials, including polycarbonate, PETG, acrylic and Perspex, as well as many more, for both two-dimensional and three-dimensional applications and bespoke products.
From the initial brief through to delivering the final product, we offer advice and support every step of the way to ensure you receive a product you’re completely happy with. Our CNC routing services provide a first-class result for any industry or sector – we have years’ worth of experience and expertise to ensure the best possible results for any application.
We’re able to tailor our routing services to meet the demands of your brief and budget, giving as an edge over the competition. As all plastics have different tolerances, having us on board from the beginning will ensure that we understand the type of finish you want to achieve and can utilise our knowledge of different materials to bring it to life. We simply need the data from you to use as the design template and the rest is up to us – we’ll create your custom-cut product and deliver it to you as quickly as possible, so you can get to using it straight away.

What does CNC routing entail?
Computer Numerical Control (CNC) has been included in a wide range of new technologies and machinery, and routers are a popular choice for this type of machining. Using CAD and CAM software on a computer, CNC routers can follow instructions to create practically any design, no matter how precise. As with other CNC machines, CNC routers are extremely effective in creating precision cuts into materials such as plastic and wood, and can be used for producing prototypes, signage, engineering parts and much more.
It works in a similar way to a standard, handheld router but with the ability to use computer numerical control to route different tool paths. This reduces the amount of waste produced, increases productivity and ensures a quicker turnaround time than handheld machinery. CNC routing is the perfect method for manufacturing flat panel-type components where a profile, simple or complex, is required. Routing is often also the initial step in the manufacturing process for other fabrications too – it’s a cutting process that can be used for virtually any rigid plastic, as well as non-ferrous metals and wood.
CNC routing is an incredibly versatile method for cutting plastics and has many advantages over other profiling machines such as water jet cutters. This method of routing provides a cleaner cut and more professional finish, as well as leave fewer cut lines and machining marks, so minimal finishing is required afterwards, if any at all. This technique can be used for house names and pub signs, and even for three-dimensional plugs and moulds.
