Non-Metallics

Non-Metallic Cut Round Parts

Moore Addison machines only NON-METALLIC materials. The universal commonality of anything we machine is that all the materials produce a cool chip when tooling is applied to the sheet, rod or tube being machined. Because there is little heat generated by any of our machining processes, we cut everything dry and use no coolants. For that reason, the parts you receive are completely free of contaminating cutting oils with any attendant outgassing and arch tracking pollution. We can even wipe down the parts to get rid of ambient dust. The dust and chips from our machining processes are collected with an enormous suction system. We pay to have this detritus hauled away and disposed of consistent with all local, state and federal regulations and laws.

The machining niche Moore Addison fills is that we make precision donuts and other basic shapes out of materials that produce dust and other nasty stuff when processed with our machines. A partial list of non-metallic materials groups and grades we currently machine in quantity is listed herein. It is a partial list because if we listed all the materials that produce a cool chip when cut, we would have many pages; you would get bored and go to another website. We want you to stay with us; indeed, if you have the name of a material and get all kinds of limiting conditions when arranging to purchase some of it, give Moore Addison a try. Not only will we provide the exact quantity of material you request, we’ll even make your part from it as well. We will also deal with the dust and mess from machining it in our shop. Your shop saves in two ways.
