Machining and Technology for Modern Plexiglass Fabrication

Modern software, powerful CNC machines, and the right team can help you take your plexiglass fabrication projects to the next level.

Plexiglass is a versatile, durable, lightweight, and cost-effective plastic that is ideal for many products and surfaces. Commonly sold in sheets, it is available in a wide variety of colors, opacities, and thicknesses. Through plexiglass fabrication processes, it can be formed into many shapes and sizes.

Two additional benefits of using plexiglass are its transparency and the fact that it does not reflect light as much as regular glass, effectively reducing glare. Plexiglass also collects less dirt than regular glass, and it can stand up to the elements well.

The words “plexiglass” and “acrylic” are often used interchangeably, but plexiglass is actually one type of acrylic. “Plexiglass” is a generic word that refers to a few different products, including the brands Plexiglas, Acrylite, Crylux, Lucite, and Perspex.

Often used in place of glass, plexiglass is made of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), a transparent thermosoftening plastic. It becomes moldable when it reaches an extremely high temperature, and it then turns solid when it is cooled. 

Some common uses for plexiglass include:

  • Barriers and sneeze guards
  • Signage and retail displays
  • Window panes
  • Photo frames and plaques
  • Backlights, such as those used at athletic fields

AutoCAD, or computer-aided design, software enables our professionals and your team to create precise 2D and 3D drawings. This smart technology offers automation that can compare and contrast drawings, and it can be customized with add-on apps and application programming.
