Versatile Laser Cutting

It can be difficult to cut or engrave softer materials and substrates accurately. Particularly when they may contain adhesive or have an inconsistent density.

Bray Plastics use their laser as a CNC ‘scalpel’ to accurately cut a range of diverse materials such as adhesive backed foam, Velcro, felt, card etc. for our customers.

 

 

If you have a challenging project or material then contact us and we can utilise our experience and equipment to provide you with the perfect solution.

Bespoke Machining for Strobe Housing

Bray Plastics were delighted to be approached by WheelRight Ltd for assistance in machining and fabricating a new enclosure used for heavy goods tyre condition monitoring.

The  450mm x 250mm enclosure was machined from 40mm nylon 66 and had various tappex inserts fitted as required. Bray worked closely with WheelRight on the prototype before the production run illustrated in the video.

Bray Plastics specialise in this type of bespoke machining in all types of plastics and metals, so please contact Bray Plastics if you have a project we can help with.

Repulse® – Polycarbonate housing solution

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.
