Since the installation of our Homag BMG 512 5 axis CNC, we have been able to take on your 3D projects. Our dedicated CAD team have built up their techniques and knowledge to handle the variety of 5 axis model work we have produced up to date. With some quite challenging projects under our belt, we are continually progressing and developing our skills to ensure that we are capable to take on any 5 axis work in the future.
Along with our new thermoformer and vacuum press we will be able to offer you 5 axis 3D solid surface. If you are not familiar with the process it involves heating up a sheet of solid surface in our thermoforming oven. Once the solid surface reaches the correct temperature it becomes malleable. It is then transferred to a 5 axis machined mould on the vacuum press. Once the vacuum cover is secure and the machine switched on, the pressure inside the press forms the sheet of solid surface to the former. Once cooled the solid surface takes on the former’s shape whilst retaining all of its original properties.
This collection of machines will really allow us to push the boundaries of panel fabrication, for not just us as manufacturers but designers and architects as well. The capabilities of both material, Starbank knowledge and expertise as well as designer’s imaginations allows us to bring their concepts to the life.
