A component required for a medical application needed to be machined from a solid slab of Acrylic 50mm thick. Bray have a heavy duty router with a work area of 2 meters by 3 meters which was suitable for the task.

Using CAD and CAM software it was possible to nest the components within a large sheet and batch cut the material ready for the next operation.

acrylic machining and routing

Although this example is for acrylic, Bray can process a whole range of engineering materials including Nylons, Polyethylene, Polycarbonate, Abs, Carbon fibre, Tufnol, as well as closed and open cell foams  to give a sample of just a few. These the images illustrate CAN routing, but our facilities also encompass CNC turning and milling. Allied to our CNC laser Bray’s ability to process plastics and polymers enhance the  designer’s choice for problem solving.
