Line Bending

descriptionRequest a quote

In simple terms, line bending is a process that’s used to make precise folds in plastic and acrylic components. As the name suggests, our line bending fabrication service allows us to bend plastic and acrylic sheets along a defined ‘line’ – without any need for gluing or joining – to create an attractive curved finish.

The sheet material in question is heated until it’s soft and malleable. The plastic or acrylic can then be bent to the desired angle, before being left to cool and set, retaining its newly formed shape.

Why choose us?

With over 30 years’ experience working with plastic products and materials, we have the knowledge and the know-how to deliver all your requirements – on time and on budget. As a leading stockist of plastic and acrylic sheeting, we offer a comprehensive product range suitable for line bending. Alternatively, we can accommodate customers who prefer to provide their own materials and we can provide an expert laser cutting and engraving service

For our line bending service we use strip heaters and jigs from CR Clarke – a specialist designer and manufacturer of thermoforming and plastic fabrication equipment – to ensure a consistent, high-quality finish. These strip heaters are designed to cater for all applications, from simple folds in thin materials, to multiple bends in materials up to 25mm thick.

We strive to make our line bending service as flexible and as versatile as possible. Our machine set-up allows us to offer large runs, small runs, and one-off pieces.

Our team of line bending technicians and operatives are highly skilled, share a wealth of expertise, and are always happy to offer advice and make appropriate recommendations. We have a proven ability to offer a wide range of competitive solutions for both businesses and individual customers. Whatever your requirements – basic or complex – you can rely on us for quality, value and complete job satisfaction.

We pride ourselves on our versatility and flexibility. We can accommodate long runs, short runs, one-offs and prototypes. As we are not restricted to set standard sizing, we can cut plastics to any size and shape required. Take a look at our easy to follow production video guide and you'll see how experienced we really are.
