Machined Plastic Examples

Bel Air develops mass finishing applications for customers who produce plastic components. Using our vibratory tumblers, high energy barrel finishers, and burnishers we deburr, polish, & improve the surface finish. Plastic processing can be done on  PEEK, acrylic, GFRP, vero, nylon, & many more.
