Assembly of parts we manufacture into more complex components, such as filters for medical use, PVC parts or machined plastic with helicoil inserts.
Thermoplastic Line Bending
Line bending is used in several industries.
Formed plastic components can be designed for CNC machining, followed by line bending for precise control of smooth, neat bends. The combination of precision CNC and line bending allows high quality components to be formed precisely and consistently.
Line bending involves heating a thermoplastic sheet material over a strip heater until it becomes soft and pliable, then bending it. Thermoplastics may be bent to any angle, using a jig.
Line bending can be done to plastic sheets such as acrylics, polycarbonates and foam PVCs.
