Transparency, rigidity, hardness and scratch resistance – these are the properties that describe this material. This is why PMMA is particularly attractive as a material for the construction industry, furniture and shop fitting, the leisure industry and as components in mobile homes. The challenge in machining is that this plastic becomes warm during processing and can begin to melt. This in turn has a negative effect on the quality of the edges and machined surfaces, resulting often in further expensive processing. Leitz offers an optimally coordinated tool programme especially for machining PMMA, which is particularly impressive in terms of quality and productivity.
