Finepart | Case | CASE: CUTTING NYLON, 17 MM


Cutting 17 mm thick Nylon

Finepart was challenged to produce a component in 17 mm Nylon. Due to the application and design, no taper was allowed on the finished part as the structure limits the possibilities of improving the surfaces in a post-process.
