Reduced Production Costs for World Leading Product


When designers and manufacturers have invested their time and expertise heavily into producing a world leading product, they want to ensure it looks as good as it performs.

Specialised Imaging Ltd are industry leaders in the design and manufacture of High-Speed cameras with frame rates between 1 Million and 1 Billion frames per second. The camera housing was initially produced using 3D printing and standard finishing techniques. Although this method met the quality required for the application, it was costly and time consuming.

Bray Plastics were approached to find an alternative method that could maintain function and quality at the same time reducing cost. Working closely with our customer, Bray made suggestions and recommendations that our customer tested and accepted.

As illustrated, the result was a formed and fabricated shell in Polycarbonate, significantly reducing production cost.

Polycarbonates are plolymers containing carbonate groups. Polycarbonates are strong, tough materials with high temperature and impact resistance.  They can be both molded and thermoformed making them very useful in a multitude of engineering applications.

With a history of machining and fabricating with acrylic materials, Bray’s engineering expertise is used by research institutes and scientific laboratories for specialist applications, such as:-

  • X-ray Acrylic panels for isolation cabinets
  • Custom PVC filter housings for chemical and biological filtration
  • Custom x-ray panels in laminated glass and Acrylic combinations
  • Polycarbonate guarding panels for equipment and biological/chemical protection/isolation
  • Vacuum formed containers for bespoke applications in conveying and storage of hazardous materials.
