Drones, UAVs or unmanned aerial vehicles are a new industry that have both hobbyist and industrial applications.
Used in the right hands they can inspect, survey, observe and deliver at low cost and can bring great advantage to the user. In the wrong hands they can also be used for criminal activity, general skulduggery and be a menace to aviation in general.
PDA Electronics has developed an anti-drone system called Repulse® which prevent drones from accessing designated areas. It is designed for Government, Military and Law Enforcement applications world-wide.
They came to Bray Plastics for their design and materials expertise to design an all-weather housing for their equipment. Their system is capable of being mounted on vehicles (military and civilian), buildings and ships as well as remote stand alone installations. Design criteria included cold and hot (-42degc +72degc ) all-weather operation with minimum signal degradation through the material.
Bray’s answer was a bespoke polycarbonate housing part formed, part fabricated (as shown in the video below) which can be produced cost effectively in low to medium volumes.

We hope you have a good holiday and see you in the New Year. We look forward to working with you on your new projects.
How can you show your components or equipment in their best light?
Functional clear acrylic displays are an effective way to demonstrate equipment and components. They can be used for exhibitions, in house demonstration, research and training. The modern, eyecatching display solution will showcase your design and really draw your audience’s attention.
VEGA Controls Ltd had one such application (as illustrated) and asked Bray Plastics to produce a clear acrylic manifold for them.
Bray Plastics can machine (CNC turning, milling and routing), profile, form and fabricate in a range of plastics (ABS, PC, PP, PS, PVC, POM, PA, PET and Phenolics) as well as acrylic.
Although we refer to this material as Acrylic it can also be known as PMMA (either cast or extruded) or by the manufactures name e.g. Perspex, Plexiglass etc.
Please give Bray Plastics a call to see if we can help with your application.
Sourcing suitable electronic and electrical enclosures, particularly in low volume can be a tedious task. Add to that a customising requirement by modifying those enclosures to suit specific applications then an already onerous task has also become a daunting one.
Bray Plastics can both machine standard off-the-shelf enclosures from the major manufacturers like Boss, Hammond, OKW/Rolec, Teko, Spelsberg, Pheonix Meccano, Fibox, Ensto and Multi Box as well as design and fabricate speciality enclosures that are customer specific and totally bespoke.
Using a variety of materials eg. ABS, PC, PP, Acetal etc., we have the capacity to design and manufacture to your requirements.
Should the production volumes increase we can also advise, design and supply injection moulded versions of the fabricated original.
If you have an enclosure issue, even if we can’t help directly, Bray Plastics could give you valuable unbiased advice, so give us a call.
EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) and EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) have high insulation values and are used extensively in the packaging, refrigeration and building industries.
Recently Bray Plastics were asked to machine a prototype surfboard core using one of their large capacity CNC routers.
We produced a profiled vacuum table in EPP to enable an accurate machining fixture for the second of the board profiles, having machined the first profile on a standard flat vacuum table.
If that sounds confusing, please take a moment to view the video!
We provide plastic engineering solutions and advice to all industry types including Automotive, Industrial, Medical and Pharmaceutical, Refrigeration and Catering and Ministry of Defence, so whatever you are looking for, please contact us on 01525 219100.
