Blue Tree Project
The Blue Tree is made of H.D.P.E. It is a very rigid material for use in general plant engineering, tank construction and waste water industries. Where all round chemical resistance and weather ability is required.
The Blue Tree Project was made of the following process:
1. CNC Machining and Trimming
The Machines Opticut oscillating knife system enables us to process materials such as X Board, Graphic Foam Board, EPS, Plastics, Corrugated Cardboard, Gasket Materials, Rubber, Cork, Felt, Aluminium, Wood and Leather.
Our CNC routers are computer controlled cutting machines with the ability to work on a large range of hard materials including wood, composites, Aluminium and plastics. These routers reduce waste, error, and time required to produce a precise finished part.
Used in conjunction with thermoforming, these machines provide fast turn around & high quality plastic parts.
With speed welding, the plastic welder, similar to a soldering iron in appearance and wattage, is fitted with a feed tube for the plastic weld rod. The speed tip heats the rod and the substrate, while at the same time it presses the molten weld rod into position. A bead of softened plastic is laid into the joint, and the parts and weld rod fuse. With some types of plastic such as polypropylene, the melted welding rod must be “mixed” with the semi-melted base material being fabricated or repaired.
These welding techniques have been perfected over time and have been utilised for over 50 years by professional plastic fabricators and repairers internationally.
Speed tip welding method is a much faster welding technique and with practice can be used in tight corners. A version of the speed tip “gun” is essentially a soldering iron with a broad, flat tip that can be used to melt the weld joint and filler materiel to create a bond.
