We design for quality! Our workshop is equipped with specialised equipment to manufacture innovative products and provide extra services supporting a wide range of industries. We have the experience and expertise to provide a full package solution. Below is the overview of our workshop process.

Bending | Thermo forming | Line bending

Our Line Bending equipment allows for high levels of flexibility. We can create straight line bends in many thermoplastic materials including:

PMMA (cast & extruded acrylic), PC (polycarbonate), PS (polystyrene), PETG (polyester) & PVC (polyvinyl chloride) 

Bending | Thermo forming | Oven

Our Thermo Forming machinery allows for fine temperature control when heating materials to the ultimate soft state. We are able to bend large area panels and create shapes using a variety of molding options.

Bonding | one component solvent glue joining

 Our work is recognized by the high quality we deliver and our attention to detail. Working with water-thin Solvent glues allow for quick turnaround time for projects in our assembly department.

Bonding | UV Light curing glues

Our workshop is highly experienced in working with thicker acrylics. We use UV light technologies and adhesive glues to deliver perfect bubble-free panel joins.

Drilling holes

Hand process, CNC router and Laser cutting options are available. Our hand process uses special acrylic drill bits with a drill press when drilling holes in flat panels and blocks.

Diamond Polishing

Diamond Polishing is a machine process that uses specialized equipment; a diamond bit delivers a perfect stress-free edge. 

Hand Polishing

Hand Polishing is a manual process that uses a large buff wheel and acrylic soap to polish blocks and cutout shapes. 

Flame Polishing

Flame polishing equipment is used to produce a small chemical-free flame that melts the acrylic edge, leaving a shiny finish.

Sawing

A flat bed table saw is used to cut square panels of varying thickness and materials to the required size

milling

Plywood, Forescolor, MDF, Acrylic, ABS, Polycarbonate

Engineering plastics including Die-bond composite board can all be cut to shape using our flat bed CNC machines, up to 100mm in material thickness.

Laser

Cutting up to 30mm acrylic thickness, laser-cutting leaves a clean edge that does not require further polishing. Greater design details are now achieved using laser-cut technology.

Printing

Using 3M flexible waterproof UV Inks, our flatbed printer process can print on materials up to 40mm in thickness. Printing allows the change of clear acrylic into colour. 

Vinyl Printing

Vinyl print and cutting vinyl is available for short term project use
