The process of making acrylic products

1. Cutting:

       Laser cutting is a non-contact cutting method. The laser can cut various patterns and characters. Laser cutting technology uses a laser beam to illuminate the surface of the acrylic plate, and then the laser releases energy to melt the acrylic. Laser cutting can be used to cut and process various very complex patterns, texts or logos, so that we can process complex shapes that meet our processing requirements. As long as the cut materials are polished, the high transparency of the acrylic material itself can be restored .


2. Punch:

       Acrylic drilling machine can be directly used for drilling, compared with glass, acrylic has very good machining characteristics. According to the requirements of the processing drawings, fix directly on the drilling machine and drill directly.


Acrylic can also use CNC drilling, so that the processed acrylic parts have high assembly accuracy, we only need to enter various parameters on the computer, and then use the computer to control the CNC machine tool to position the drilling.


3. Polishing:

       Acrylic itself has high transparency, comparable to natural crystals. So we need to restore the crystal-like high transparency of acrylic polishing after polishing. Acrylic polishing can use traditional cloth wheel polishing or diamond polishing or fire polishing. The order is usually after polishing the diamond, using fire polishing to remove the burrs in the corners to make the acrylic product smooth, and finally polishing with a cloth wheel. After the cloth wheel is waxed, acrylic products with a transparency of up to 92% can be polished off.


4. Hot bending:

       Since the softening degree of the acrylic material is between 70 and 100 degrees, the thermal bending technology can be used to process the acrylic into various shapes and irregular accessories that we need. Acrylic bending can be achieved in different ways. It can also be said that many acrylic plates are placed on a set of hot bending machines and hot bending molds. Most hot bending can only be done with single wires or parallel wires. The hot bending angle can be controlled by setting the mold as required.


5. Bonding:

       Bonding is a very important process, which is processed by hand, so the experience of employees is very important at this time, and the bonding process of acrylic products must be strictly controlled, not only to the position where the drawing is designed. Then, it must not be sticky, blistered, or loosely bonded, so that the products that are strictly controlled will be allowed to ship.


6. Assembly:

      It goes without saying that the final assembly is to combine the finished acrylic parts to complete a complete product. At this time, the final quality inspection should be conducted on the entire product, and it can be packaged and shipped only after confirmation.
