Box clever with new plastics finishing solution
Hampshire-based AWLTECH, a leading supplier of plastics thermoforming and edge-finishing solutions to the sign manufacturing, materials fabrication and architectural design and build sectors, has now expanded its range of machines to include a smaller and more compact diamond edge-polishing system.
Developed by fabrication specialist company BEMAQ in Spain and available at less than 5K, the BOX is said to be the cheapest machine of its kind currently available, providing a level of performance comparable with more expensive high-end systems and requiring only the smallest of workplace areas in which to operate.
The portable table-top machine is ideal for the edge-polishing of a wide range of acrylic and PMMA substrates, enabling a superior-quality high-gloss or matt finish using either a synthetic or natural diamond polishing tool. Weighing just 15kg and with outer machine dimensions of 420 x 360 x 390mm, the BOX will handle materials up to 20mm thick at a feed rate of up to 1.5 metres/minute and at variable milling motor speeds ranging from 7,000 up to 12,000rpm to accommodate different kinds of material.
Key design features of the BOX include automatic material feed and chips-extraction units and a robust workpiece clamping system. The machine also meets all relevant EC Safety Regulations.
The BOX can be viewed at the AWLTECH showroom/demonstration site in Alton, Hampshire or carried out at a customer’s premises by a member of the AWLTECH technical team.
