POM (Polyoxymethylene), also known as Acetal or Delrin, is a high-performance engineering thermoplastic that is widely used in custom CNC machining applications due to its excellent dimensional stability, low coefficient of friction, and high wear resistance. Here are some tips for POM CNC machining:
Choose the right tooling: POM is a tough and abrasive material, so it requires hard and sharp cutting tools with high wear resistance. Carbide tools are recommended for POM machining.
Control the cutting speed and feed rate: POM has a low melting point, so it tends to melt during machining if the cutting speed and feed rate are too high. To prevent melting and achieve good surface finish, use a low cutting speed and feed rate.
Use lubrication: POM generates a lot of heat during machining, which can cause the material to melt and stick to the cutting tool. Using a coolant or lubricant can help reduce the temperature and prevent the material from melting.
Consider the design of the part: POM is a highly dimensionally stable material, which means that it has low thermal expansion and contraction. When designing a part for POM machining, it is important to consider the material's shrinkage and warping behavior to ensure that the final product meets the desired specifications.
Pay attention to tool marks: POM is a material that shows tool marks easily, so it is important to pay attention to the cutting tool's condition and tool path to achieve the desired surface finish.
Maintain a clean machining environment: POM generates a lot of chips and dust during machining, so it is important to maintain a clean machining environment to prevent contamination and ensure the quality of the final product.
