Plastic Heating and Bending | Acrylic Bending Machines
Acrylic bending machines use heat to soften acrylic and plastic sheets so they can be easily formed into any desired shape or angle. When the material is allowed to cool down, it becomes rigid again.
These machines can be adapted for a huge variety of uses that include decoration engineering, aquarium wrapping, sign making, creating bent supermarket shelves and display cabinets, creating acrylic and plastic plates, and making artworks.
Acrylic bending machines are available in a variety of models and each of them is unique in its design and purpose.
