Here at Lyndhurst Plastic Fabrication we are offering our customers a wealth of experience gained over a twenty year period. Our ethos is to offer a reliable customer driven Plastic Fabrication and CNC Routing Service. We pride ourselves on offering a quick turn around, we have the flexibility to machine large volume runs small batches and even one offs, particularly important when producing those all important prototypes and samples.
We invite you to contact us to discuss all your Fabrication and machining needs.
By the very nature of plastic fabrication, the possibilities available in transforming a basic flat panel into a multi-dimensional item are almost endless. The application of heat allows the sheet to be bent or drape moulded into shape.
CNC routing is a process used to machine flat sheets using the latest computer technology. We use this process to manufacture machine guards, machine housings, cut to size panels, and as the first stage of in manufacturing display cases polymer radiator covers free standing displays and all other plastic fabrications.
Hot gas welding is a process used to fabricate certain plastics, PVC polypropylene polycarbonate ABS PETG, typically tanks for water treatment etc .
Our team are skilled in this process through many years of experience.
Straight line bending is created using the application of heat on rigid plastic sheet to produce simple shapes like boxes covers machine housing leaflet and card racks to the more complex shapes and designs.
This is the general term describing the processes applied to flat sheets of plastic to create a product, CNC routing, straight line bending, drape moulding and welding already described.
In addition to those described, other methods of bonding include gluing using specialist adhesives and various fastenings and rivets suitable for the material requirements.
Drape moulding is another fabrication process not yet mentioned it is the process of heating an entire sheet in an oven and then forming it into a mould typically used for boat windows curved displays machine guards etc.
The final process not yet described is polishing to give a clear or gloss finish depending on the material involved, we use hand polishing flame polishing and buff polishing.
