As part of our services, Emco Industrial Plastics provides high-quality custom plastic fabrications in low to high volumes. With our all-encompassing range of fabrication capabilities, we handle a wide range of product specifications. We manage the entire process from More... start to finish, and as plastics experts, we offer guidance on design and material selection to improve quality and lower production costs.Along with thermoforming, drape forming, die cutting, and laser cutting, our main plastic fabrication capabilities include edge finishing, solvent bonding, extrusion welding, and CNC routing. For our fabrication programs, we combine these techniques in a well-planned and strategic manner to streamline production and optimize yields. One of the benefits of working with us as a plastics fabricator is that we are also a plastics distributor, and we have an extensive inventory of sheets, round rod, and tube always in stock. We primarily work with high-performance engineering plastics, and we have exceptional capabilities fabricating acetal, acrylic, ABS, G-10, polycarbonate, polyurethane, etc.With our fabrication capabilities, we can create components in an extensive range of sizes and shapes measuring as large as 126" long x 126" wide to tolerances as close as ±0.005". We thermoform large parts such as engine covers, railcar interior trim parts, packaging, and enclosures, and we die cut and laser cut shapes for control panels, sign making, and more. Edge treatments range from saw cut edges to bevels, hand or machined polished. For assembly, we use various welding and bonding techniques, depending on application requirements.Our wide range of fabrication capabilities combined with our 30+ years of experience makes our fabrication services reliable and worry free. For more detailed information about our plastics fabrication services or to request a quote, contact us directly. Less
With our custom thermoforming services, Emco Industrial Plastics economically manufactures small to large-sized parts in various configurations. Thermoforming involves the controlled heating of a plastic sheet until it becomes pliable. Using vacuum pressure, the heated More... sheet of plastic is drawn down against a mold to take on its shape. Thermoforming is compatible with a wide range of thermoplastics, and we can build the tooling quickly and relatively inexpensively. Parts exhibit excellent aesthetics, and we can create various patterns, textures, and finishes.Fast and efficient, thermoforming allows for rapid product development, and we can hold dimensional tolerances on parts measuring as large as 10' x 10'. Along with ABS, acrylic, and polycarbonate, we thermoform parts from plastics like PVC, PVDF, etc., in sheets measuring from 0.005" to 0.250" in thickness. During each cycle, we can create a single large part or multiples of smaller pieces. Examples of products we thermoform range from packaging and medical components to lift truck enclosures, construction equipment engine covers, railcar interior trim parts, and more.Along with vacuum forming, we also offer a variation called drape forming. With drape forming, we heat sheets of various thicknesses to a temperature that allows them to be pressed over a mandrel to create the shape without vacuum. Since the sheet is not stretched, the plastic retains a consistent dimensional thickness, and it keeps its surface features post-processing. The tooling is inexpensive, but the process is slow, making it suitable for prototype and start-up projects.We offer thermoforming services for moderate annual volumes. Since we are also a plastics distributor, we keep many different sheet materials in stock to accelerate turnaround times. To learn more about our custom thermoforming operations or to submit an RFQ, contact us directly. Less
At Emco Industrial Plastics, we offer various edge finishing, forming, and polishing options for acrylic sheets, tubes, rods, and machined and fabricated products. Our facility houses a variety of high speed machines for producing the various finishes for low to high More... volume projects. We offer edge finishing, forming, and polishing for acrylic products measuring up to 120" long x 120" wide and from 0.030" to 3.0" in thickness.To treat edges, the standard and most economical choice is a saw cut edge. Edges are chip-free, and no further treatment is needed if the edges are being engaged. We also offer milled edge finishing, where we run the sheets through a high speed joiner to produce a frosted edge for a contemporary look. For items like tabletops, displays, or frameless acrylic panels with visible edges, we can flame polishing the edges to produce a high luster. Another polishing option is machine and diamond polishing, while for the most elevated quality edges, we sand and polish them to obtain a lustrous museum-quality finish.We also form various edge geometries. We offer full bevel and half bevel edges to soften the edges and make them safer to handle, facilitate mating, or improve wear resistance and aesthetics. Other options include smooth round over edges that curve halfway down and a bullnose that curves from top to bottom.With our range of edge finishing, forming, and polishing options, we provide solutions for any application. To learn more about the various treatments available, or to request a quote, contact us directly. Less
As a custom thermoplastic fabricator, at Emco Plastics, our capabilities include extrusion welding. We use several methods to weld thermoplastics like polypropylene, polyethylene, PVC, CPVC, and PVDF. As a company specializing in high-performance engineering plastics, More... we also have the expertise to extrusion weld ultra-high purity materials like Halar® and materials like Corzan® that stand up to the most aggressive chemicals. We also weld FM4910 approved materials specified for cleanrooms and semiconductor processing. With our in-depth knowledge of thermoplastics, their temperature window for welding, and the various welding techniques and filler materials, we can accommodate the most challenging applications.We use freehand extrusion welding to bond plastic pieces together to create large welds in thick materials in a single pass. With five hot-air welding stations for fast, continuous welding, we fabricate items like chemical tanks, water tanks, and plumbing fittings where the pieces are made from the same or similar materials. Another method we use is speed tip welding, a fast technique that melts the weld joint and filler to create a bond in parts with complicated geometries.With our extrusion welding services, we fabricate thermoplastic tanks for the metal finishing, wastewater treatment, and chemical processing industries. We also use it for one-piece construction of cabinets, wet benches, wafer stackers, and other equipment used in cleanrooms and semiconductor processing. These techniques are also useful for ducts and fittings for exhaust and ventilation.Our extrusion welding services manage any project from low to high volume.
