You already know that Bray Plastics are experts in plastic machining and design solutions, but did you also know that we complete many laser-cutting projects?
Marking or cutting some non metallic materials can be quite problematic. The substrate surface may be disruptive or have adhesive backing. The material itself could be particularly tough or conversely extremely fragile. Overcoming these problems and finding suitable production solutions for our customers is only one part of the value add services that Bray Plastics can offer.
Using our lasers, routers and our expertise, Bray Plastics have found cost-effective manufacturing solutions for our customers to return again and again. So much so, Bray’s production output is over 80% repeat with longstanding clients across industries, including Medical, Defence, Transport and Automotive.
Here are some videos of the laser-cutting equipment at work – all strangely compelling!

Working with Performace Storage Systems Ltd to standardise theatre layout with storage units on wheeled trolleys.
Bray Plastics has an enviable and varied range of repeat customers in a diverse range of industries. One recent example is Performance Storage Systems Ltd for whom we have previously carried out projects for hospitals. They required workstation equipment being supplied for another Foundation Hospital operating theatre refurbishment project to standardise theatre layout.
Various storage units were designed and fabricated in Polypropylene, PVC, Acrylic, HIPs and ABS, which were then mounted on or in new or existing wheeled trollies to increase efficiency in Theatre and ease cleaning. These are illustrated in the images below.
The most common name used to describe clear plastic would appear to be Perspex, and there are many others, but they are all actually trade names for Acrylic or PMMA (Polymethylmethacrylate).
Acrylic is used in a huge range of products across a wide range of industries from low-tech to high and from low-cost to high budget.
It can be moulded, machined, fabricated and is widely available off the shelf as sheet, rod, bar, tube etc. Bray Plastics have extensive experience working with and producing acrylic products for their customers.
One recent example was a vacuum door produced for Leskers UK Ltd that was fitted to a high end vacuum chamber, as illustrated in the image below. The door was machined from 80 mm acrylic and finished by hand.
