Imatex processing : Bending, folding and drape forming
The plastics we process are thermoplastics which can be reshaped at higher temperatures.
When heated locally or fully they become flexible and the material can be formed to the required angle.
For more complicated shapes the sheet is completely heated in an oven and then cooled in a mould to the required shape. We also have the right machines for carrying out drape forming.
Some materials, such as polycarbonate and PET can also be folded on our CNC-controlled folding bench.
