BENDING

HOT OR COLD PLASTIC BENDING DEPENDING ON THE MATERIAL AND APPLICATIONT 

All thermoplastics can be hot bended. Cold bending can be used for all plastics with a minimum bending radius.

Hot bending

Thermoplastic bending is done using heated tools for bending and angle forming. When heat is applied, the solid material warms up and becomes malleable, allowing to make a bend. The desired bend angle is obtained using a template.

Cold bending


Some plastics, such as polycarbonate and PETG can, under certain conditions, be cold bended on a press brake. This technique provides a very straight bend and help to avoid irregular curvature (banana).

THE MACHINE WHICH ALLOWS HOT BENDING OF PLASTIC IS A HEAT BENDING MACHINE.

Heat bending machine includes a wire or a heating element and a cooler that could be positioned on a specific heating zone to obtain a straight bend.


Groupe PolyAlto has several equipment for plastic bending use, such as the automatic bending machine and hot wire bender.
