Plastic Bending is a thermal process utilized to shape products. In this process, mostly heat (but for some designs also cold bending) is being used in order to shape the part into its desired geometry. This method is most suitable for products made from Polycarbonate (PC), Acrylic (PMMA), PVC, and PETG. With our expertise with bending plastics, we are able to bend and maintain their transparency, including with PC, which is not a common practice.
In Scopustech, the bending is being done via electronically controlled heaters, enabling maximum accuracy, while considering also small radii products. For Larger radii products, we produce complying tooling in our CNC production facility, which is being inserted into designated temperature-controlled ovens.
Which raw materials are suitable for these technologies:
Among the materials we are able to bend are:
- PMMA, commonly also known as “Perspex” and “Plexiglass”
- Polycarbonate (PC) also known as Lexan
