Trusted Plastic Fabrication Experts
Since 1986 we have been the go-to plastic fabrication company in the UK for prototypes and low-volume enclosures, parts, covers and casings batches. As expert plastic fabricators, we produce quality prototype enclosures and casings for a wide range of uses.
Our in-house manufacturing facilities in Brackley use CNC machining and laser cutting to efficiently cut, drill, polish, bend, bevel, turn and shape large rigid sheets of plastic into close tolerance, cost-effective enclosures, parts, covers and casings.
As we use no tools or expensive moulds there is no big, upfront expense of having a tool made. Plus, design changes can be easily accommodated and happen on the fly, so turnaround times are quicker. Also means you are not stuck with an expensive, obsolete injection mould if the model or technology is upgraded.

What is Plastic Fabrication?
Plastic sheet fabrication is the process where a plastic sheet is folded, welded or bonded in the manufacture of bespoke plastic parts or enclosures. This precise process bends the plastic sheet into specified shapes by applying heat. Holes and bosses can also be added for potential lids, hinges, doors, mounting elements, power access, screens and cameras.
FYI there are a variety of plastic fabrication methods available, each method has its advantages and disadvantages. Some methods are better suited for certain types of parts, the budget or the volume required.
