Manchester, UK – For Plastic Formers Ltd, investing in its first eurolaser cutting system 11 years ago meant that a great number of possibilities were opened up for it to make use of its decades of experience in the plastics branch for new products.
Plastic Formers Ltd., a specialist in the manufacture, processing and design of plastic products for industry and trade, was founded here almost half a century ago. All manufacturing and processing procedures for the various plastics were in operation including bending, molding, milling, and sawing. However, an economical solution for the creation of filigree contours and smooth cut edges was needed if the product range was to be expanded. The suitability of the usual machining methods was very limited and involved expensive reworking.
Shortly after the company purchased the first system, it invested in a second system to meet increasing demand. Now with its total of six L-2500 systems from eurolaser (Luneburg, Germany), the company is today in a position to offer innovative solutions, especially for PMMA, from the design stage down to manufacturing - and this in large quantities and with delivery short times. Strong growth made it necessary to move to new, and more importantly, bigger premises in 2006.
"Our state-of-the-art acrylic laser cutting facility is probably the best in Europe, maybe the world. The eurolaser cutting systems are ideal for the manufacture of high-quality acrylic products with an almost unbeatable accuracy of detail, excellent quality, a wide range of applications and flexibility of performance. When combined with the latest software, these systems also allow large-scale deep engraving for logos and images, which if engraved in fluorescent materials create a brilliant light effect," said Daniel Jepson, managing director at Plastic Formers Ltd.
