Moulding and Bending

A heritage of manufacturing skill matched with the very latest equipment

With over 50 years acrylic fabrication experience we have extensive knowledge of drape moulding, blow moulding and line bending techniques, helping us deliver high quality cost-effective parts and products in low to high volume.

Drape Moulding

With relatively inexpensive tooling, drape moulding is ideal for low volume projects but we also have the capacity to manufacture at high volume when required. Drape moulding is an ideal way to produce curved or shaped parts and products – our team will always help you choose the most effective fabrication process.

Our experienced team and large capacity equipment means we can produce a wide range of drape moulded products in low and high volumes.  We can drape mould up to 2.5m so there are very few projects that we cannot undertake.

We currently manufacture a range of products using drape moulding process including boat screens, car screens for our automotive clients and curved displays for Point of Sale displays.

Our drape moulding capacity includes

  • LARGE MOULDING OVEN
  • SMALL MOULDING OVEN

Blow Moulding

For large volume production of hollow products blow moulding offers a cost-effective process for a range of materials including Polyethylene (Low Density) LDPE, Polyethylene (High Density) HDPE, (LLDPE), Polypropylene (PP), Polyethylene – Terephthalate (PET), Polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Our experienced team and efficient, large capacity machinery means we can deliver high quality blow moulded products with a fast turnaround if required.

We currently manufacture a range of blow moulded products for retail Point of Sale.

Line Bending

We have unparalleled line bending ability with a massive range of equipment backed up by a highly skilled workforce.

We can line bend single or double parallel products as well as manufacture more complex forms. Utilising some of the best equipment available means we can bend with exceptional accuracy, offer uninterrupted heat bands where required and bend substrates up to 3m long and up to 25mm thickness. We are able to line bend a large range of acrylics and polycarbonates.

Our current line bending equipment range includes

  • CLARKES LD60 BENDER
  • CLARKES LINE BENDER RIG x3
  • FLATBED MANUAL HEATER x 2
  • FLATBED MANUAL HEATER THERMOBEND ELITE 72
  • OPEN WIRE HEATERS
  • PVC AUTOBENDER x2
  • SHANNON AUTO-BEND HRP/D
  • SHANNON AUTOBEND HRT 220-300
  • SHANNON BENDER

From high volume projects to smaller runs, we have the capability and skills to deliver high quality line bent products and our flexible working practices ensures we can manage short turnarounds. #

We currently bend a large range of retail display POS items, acrylic tables and complex bespoke products.
