Plastic fabrication is a combination of the most common processes to machine plastics.
Plastics fabrication usually includes milling and turning, sometimes also machining in CNC centres. For smaller volumes conventional machining is common and for larger volumes CNC machining is typically used.
Plastic fabrication is especially common for small volumes, as there is usually no tooling cost. Plastics fabrication is also a common process to improve tolerances after moulding.
It is normally carried out in smaller workshops or plastic moulding facilities.
This manufacturer of special purpose machines, is looking for a fast turnaround on the attached Polycarbonate outfeed and infeed tunnels.
Quotes and best lead time are requested for these part and a quick response is extremely desirable.
This organization is a 3,400 strong volunteer-run nonprofit incubator organization, with engineers, scientists, and doctors around the world dedicated to helping the world address the COVID-19 pandemic.
They are urgently asking for quotes and fastest lead time to build acrylic Intubation boxes that reduce the aerosol transmission of Covid 19 to clinical staff during the intubation process.
Feedback from clinical staff is positive and we now urgently want to produce some samples for further testing before roll out.
We are looking for 4 boxes as a prototype and then if trials are successful then rollout out to wider NHS.
US experience suggests 1-3 units per hospital.
Open source plans are attached (which may lead to modification post trial) and a briefing note to help you understand the context of use and benefit for NHS. This project is looking to crowdfund the work so any discounting or free work would be greatly appreciated.
The buyer who has loaded this project on Qimtek has asked for the following:
"We are responding to the Covid19 crisis for the UK. In particular, supplying face visors/shields. As I'm sure you can appreciate it is an urgent matter and would love to get a quote on the following: a small set of samples so that we can get approvals from medical provisions. That being successful, we would love to be able to get these made to scale. We are all working on this without any profit or payment and we would greatly appreciate any feasible sponsorship/discount/contribution of any other sort to help deal with this crisis! We would love to show what UK manufacturing can do as well as support your business at the same time"
The buyer require quotes and lead time for the manufacture of face shields made from of PET (or equivalent) 150 to 300 microns. .005 -0.01 inches or .005" -0.01" PET (mylar/duralar) film.
The buyer requires quotes on 10 units as a sample run, and then following approval, the potential quantities will be between 500-5000 per week.
This natural sciences research and development centre is in need of a new range of enclosures required for greenhouse gas research. Therefore, they require the assistance of a plastic supplier who can manufacture the attached design. Although there is no immediate order to place, once the plot size - and therefore, the quantity required - has been confirmed, the order will follow shortly after with delivery to be finalised at this point as well. This is currently a one-off requirement with delivery to be staggered on a call-off basis.
**Due to the current health climate, we ask that you only submit a quotation for this project if you are in a position to fulfil the requirement.**
Suppliers with the capabilities to produce plastic wings are asked to provide a quotation for the attached designs. These will be used within an art installation and the buyer is keen to hear from interested suppliers as soon as possible. Quotes are required for various material thicknesses as per the specification provided.
With an outsourcing spend of over £24,000 on bespoke fabricated designs, this company has an order to place for this new design of plastic enclosure, which is to be made from Polycarbonate and will be used within the construction industry. Quotes are sought for 60, 120 and 200 off, with scope for additional work to follow once a good working relationship is established. Pricing and quality/accuracy is paramount for this enquiry.
This company operates within the semiconductor industry and has an annual spend of over £53million on varied fabrication work. They have an order to place for the complete supply and assembly of the attached bulk tank, made from white Polypropylene. The buyer is looking for a supplier with Polypropylene plastic welding capabilities, as well as the capacity available for regular ongoing orders of 4 off bulk tanks to be manufactured and assembled every 1-2 months. This is a fantastic opportunity to work with a high-profile company for the supply of plastic fabrication work. Pricing, excellent quality and reliable delivery are all important factors within this enquiry.
Please note that due to the confidentiality surrounding this project, signed NDAs will be forwarded onto the buyer for approval before drawings can be released. Therefore, there may be a short time delay before drawings are released for this reason.
Important note: Any Qimtek member who has signed an NDA within the last 12 months for this company will have immediate access to the drawings without an NDA being required.
This company specialises in architecture and construction work and has an order to place for a joining bracket which consists of a plate and tube, to be fabricated from a hard plastic. The buyer is seeking advice surrounding the best type of plastic to use and is also considering metal options for this component. The finished product will need to withstand heat (up to "hand hot" temperatures) and vibration, with the brackets in question to be used as part of an air handling unit within the construction sector. Any material suggestions from suppliers will be welcomed. Quotes are sought for 100, 200 and 500 off, with ongoing work available in addition to this initial enquiry.
Suppliers who can lend accuracy and a high level of precision to the attached acrylic housings & sheets are sought, on behalf of a company that works within the offshore industry. These are new designs and the client would like to allocate manufacture for both the initial order and the ongoing production runs that follow. The parts in question are to be fabricated from clear acrylic and as the buyer spends an impressive £300,000 a year on subcontract fabrication services, there could be scope for additional projects to run alongside this enquiry. The buyer has also confirmed that should other processes be deemed more suitable to make these parts, they will be happy to discuss alternative suggestions.
