Specialist Foam Processes
For more than four decades, at Polyformes Ltd, we have been working with Polyethylene foam materials. We utilise a number of different foam processes designed to mould and form foam for number of different applications.
Whether you're looking to have foam material cut to a specific size, engraved to create a numbered effect or printed to promote your brand, we have the solution for you and your clients. Some of our most frequently used processes include CNC routing & machining, moulding & forming, waterjet cutting and more.
CNC Routing & Machining
Using our specialist foam machining process, we are able to achieve high quality, high volume output of both two and three dimensional PE foam parts. CNC routing & machining is fully operated digitally by computer software. Each head has a seven-tool auto-changer allowing for greater machine speeds and also allowing for a number of specialist cutters to be employed on individual parts.
Moulding & Forming
At Polyformes, we work closely with our clients in order to provide a foam solution to their brief and final product criteria. Intricate and well-defined moulded foam parts can be utilised across a number of different industries particularly aerospace and defence industries where accuracy is vital.
Waterjet Cutting Foam
Unlike with other foam cutting processes, waterjet cutting is specially programmed to cut the exact shape required of the finished component meaning that right-angled corners, sharp hair-pin bends and curves prove no problem. Over the years we have used waterjet cutting for a number of industries including industrial, aeronautical and promotional.
At Polyformes, we utilised our very own unique patented 4 colour printing for foam. We have developed and patented our technique the brings alive and enhances any product or packaging with colour. The quality of print is exceptional and extremely hard wearing.
In the past our clients have used foam printing for exercise mats, mouse mats, tool and product identification as well as much more. For more information on any of our foam process, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us today and we will be more than happy to help.
