Cast Nylon Custom Cast Capabilities

We provide a cast nylon custom casting service for unique profiles. The in-house technical and fabrication team can design and build a tool for uniquely specified products, this leads to a significant increase in efficiency and minimisation of waste, a testament to our ESG responsibility and commitment.

Custom Casing

We have the capability to manufacture products in a wide range of volumes, from small to large, with the capacity to cast up to 300mm in outside diameter. Our expertise extends to creating complex and unique shapes, enhancing product efficiency.


  • Reduced waste material
  • Reduced machining time
  • Decreased cost implications
  • Ability to modify material for castings

Custom sizes and shapes in various grades are available subject to drawing and design specifications and customer requirements.


Exclusively manufactured in our Nylacast South Africa facility.

Extruded rod capacity: Solid rods from 16mm to 400mm diameter.

Extruded Semi-Finished stock shapes are available in HDPE, POMC, PA6CC, Nylanite.



CNC Cut to Size

We have a range of cutting technology, that includes:

  • Saw’s: 
    • Beam Saw for cutting of plates, with a cutting tolerance band of 0.00 +2.00 mm. 
    • Circular Saw for precise cutting of rods, tubes and blocks to a tolerance of 0.00 +3.00 mm
    • Band saw capacity is Ø1100
  • 2-Side Rotary Planner: used on plates that require specific tolerance factor of 0 to +0.4 mm
  • 4-Side Planner: Angular 4-sided planing for customer specifications that require specific tolerance factor on all faces


CNC Cut to Size


Our machining centre is staffed with skilled professionals and apprentices, manufactures applications in various materials of countless sizes and volumes. We utilise both CNC turning & milling technology, supported with advanced tooling for efficient prototypes and batch quantities production. Our ISO 9001:2015 qualified processes ensure our customers receive a quality product, whether short lead times or scheduled orders are required.
