Notably, our machines are capable of machining parts up to 3000mm x 2000mm in size. Also, In most cases, what follows is the fabrication process. Processes which, Sentinels experienced team have perfected over the years. Thus, forming the finished products required. Finally, the last stage involves welding & adhesive, which is carried out to stabilize all the joints and create a seal.
Bending Bespoke Polycarbonate Fabrications
Certainly, the skills acquired to work with a complex material, such as Polycarbonate, have been finely honed over many years. Thus, results in the ability to produce accurate bending. So, the result is all sized Guards, in very short time scales.
Sentinel can fabricate from 1mm up to 10mm. However, after that, thickness can depend on design and availability.
Machining Polycarbonate and Polycarbonate Fabrications
Certainly, our Plastic CNC machining services offer a great range of capabilities. Enabling us to achieve your bespoke requirements. Significantly, combined with our in-house plastic fabrication services, offer our customers a comprehensive package.
In addition, although we have finely honed our ability to work with Polycarbonate, our skills do also cover acrylic, PETG and PVC. Similarly, other types of engineering plastic materials from acetal, Delrin, nylon, polyethylene, HDPE to ABS and so on.
Material, Polycarbonate Sheet / Makrolon® Sheet / Lexan® Sheet
In the main, as standard, solid polycarbonate sheets are clear/transparent. But, its main attribute is, a Plastic material, Polycarbonate, which offers an extreme impact strength that exceeds the majority of other clear plastics. Also, noteworthy, is that Polycarbonate sheets can work in temperatures of -100 to +120 °C while still maintaining a high optical clarity and have a good fire rating.
How do Plastic CNC Routers Work
To begin, CNC Routers work with CAD (Computer-Assisted Design) and a toolpath program. Thus. this is where programming the desired paths, select the cutter (or cutters) you intend to use. Then, The software calculates the cutting instructions and the times required. Next, you secure the plastic, normally via a vacuum, but can be mechanically fixed, or both in some cases. Install the correct router bits in the tool holders and begin the routing process.
A popular plastic material used to make shatterproof windows, it has a better light transmission than regular glass.
Our experienced machinists, Polycarbonate Specialists, can produce small or large batch quantities with high accuracy and high speed. Furthermore, making this an economic form of producing cut to shape plastic parts. Customers from the Conveyor Manufacturer’s to the high tech world of underwater exploration. All Make use of Sentinels skilled staff to gain benefits, including cost saving and problem solving during the design process.
Some Bespoke projects require extra attention. Hence, our technical knowledge and innovative processes are there to assist all the way from concept and design through to manufacture. Be it simple Perspex panels or polycarbonate safety guards through to complex plastic fabrication. Through pride and dedication, Sentinel is a respected fabricator of high-quality Guards, Screens, fabricated components, all used in a wide variety of industries.
