CNC Routing Services - Replicate Accurately
Computerised Numerical Control
Our CNC Routing facilities allow our customers to receive consistently replicated parts which are cut from sheets of Acrylic, Polycarbonate, MDF, PVC, Polypropylene, PTFE, Acetal, ABS, HDPE and Laminates such as Tufnol, Formica, Aluminium Composite Panels. Unlike Laser cutting CNC Routers can be used with a diverse range of engineering and building plastics without any toxic fumes or burnt edges that a laser cutting machine leaves.Our Router table sizes are 3050x2030mm thus allowing the machining of parts and large panels with no joints. We request customers to provide us DXF file format drawings to save costs of programming and speed response to quotes.

The presentation and quality of the Display Suite has become an integral part of the sale process in successful launching of apartments in Australia. Builders, developers, architects and designers are constantly looking for innovative finishes that give their buildings that differentiation from thousands of apartments that are being built in major cities. Allplastics Architectural and building division has been involved recently with a number of developers who have specified innovative finishes to provide their Display Suites with that luxurious touch. One of these niche materials has been the use of European grade acrylic mirrors which are available in silver, gold, bronze, grey and other colours.

Acrylic mirrors are lightweight compared with glass. In addition, they are safer and easier to handle on site. This will allow the room to look bigger and also give ceilings and walls a classy finish. Care must be taken about the way acrylic mirrors are installed to avoid warping as well as securing the mirrors on a flat substrate such as MDF.

Allplastics provided Silver Acrylic Mirrors for a newly opened home display suite at Wentworth point in Sydney. The project managers Thomsen Building services were given a challenging brief by the interior architect.

"Standard glass mirror was not feasible due to safety concerns" commented Jason Thompson managing director of Thomsen Building. "Allplastics offered a practical solution by cutting and gluing the 3m x 2m sheets in a tight frame of time". The result is a stunning look as reflected in the photos recently received. Allplastics provides Acrylic Mirrors in silver as well as colours for a diverse range of applications where glass is not practical or economical to use.

Another innovative application for acrylic mirror has been its use in cladding of “islands” in the kitchen. Care must be taken to avoid the mirrors being subjected to kicks or scuffing. This can be achieved by introducing mesh or similar barriers which will not take away the gloss of the mirror but would minimize the risk of any damage to the mirror surface.

Transparent, Acoustically Effective Ceiling Panels in Harmony with Architecture
The current contemporary architecture is the utilisation of ever larger areas of glass or acrylic. Increasingly, newly constructed or refurbished communications areas fail to meet even minimal acoustic requirements necessary for their use. The pursuit of transparency and good acoustics do not have to be mutually exclusive.

Allplastics offers you AIR-board® Acoustic as its transparent sandwich panels consisting of micro-perforated translucent outer layers and a transparent honeycomb core gives you a high level of sound absorption with unique appearance and functionality. Airboard Acoustic is used to improve the room acoustic and sound absorption for special projects.

Airboard Acoustic is developed in Austria with its unique combination of aesthetically pleasing effects and stunning design it creates numerous opportunities for innovative concepts. These panels have tiny perforations which will absorb the noise and would be ideal partition panels to separate noisy areas. Furthermore, the composite panels are lightweight thus resulting in savings for supporting structures.

AIR-board® is available in a range of different honeycomb core structures which allow for a variety of design options such as ceiling panels, design and display applications, awnings, wall partitions etc.

KEY FEATURES:
Easy to install
Excellent light transmission
Fire class B1 according to DIN 4102
High sound absorption
Lightweight material with minimal
support structures
Unique translucent optic
APPLICATIONS AND FUNCTIONS:

Clubs with noisy areas
Concert halls
Gymnasiums
Workstations
Public venues
SIZE AVAILABILITY:

Size (mm): 2500 x 1220
Thickness (mm): 19

How Precision Machined Acrylics are Used in Prosthetic Eyes
The eye is a very special organ allowing us to witness the marvels of nature, provide awareness of our surroundings, the ability to communicate with loved ones and many other critical functions.

However, eyes are also vulnerable. Sporting accidents, industrial injuries, birth defects, glaucoma, diabetes and cancer are common causes of eye loss.The surgical removal of an eye requires a prosthetic eye which is crafted by an ocularist.

Kerri Wilson is a Sydney ocularist with more than a quarter century of experience in the art and science of crafting artificial eyes using a precision machined acrylic centre piece which she uses as an easel to paint the intricate colours and shades of the iris.

Prior to WW2 artificial eyes were handblown glass prosthetics. The glass used was sourced from Germany. WW2 caused Allied countries to lose access to German glass. Wartime injuries increased the urgent demand for an alternative, which was developed by a team working with the U.S army Dental Corps using acrylic, a material new to dentistry at the time.

The advert of acrylic birthed the modern practice of ocularistry, a blend of science and art in crafting an eye that closely resembles the real eye and with realistic colours and blood veins.

Kerri Wilson is one of a handful of ocularists in Australia. She handcrafts each prosthetic eye to meet the specific requirements of each patient. After carefully hand painting the iris colours for the prosthetic eye in the presence of the recipient, she machines the iris on a small precision lathe and proceeds to build the bespoke prosthetic shape.The prosthesis is then cured in a polymerisation unit, used to cure acrylic at high temperatures & under high pressure, once cured it must be allowed to cool naturally.

Kerri continued by stating “I have been using precision machined acrylic parts from Allplastics Engineering for more than 10 years and their quality has always been an important factor in our business”

Allplastics Engineering has been machining plastic components for a variety of industries since 1979.

Versailles: Treasures of the Palace Protected by Acrylic
The National Gallery of Australia (N.G.A) is showcasing a sumptuous exhibition in Canberra, the “Treasures from the Palace” exhibition is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see and experience here in Australia an incredible period of French history. For the first time ever, more than 130 paintings, intricate tapestries, gilded furniture items, monumental statues and other objects from the royal gardens are on display, as well as personal items from Louis XIV to Marie Antoinette, bringing to life the reigns of three Kings, their Queens and mistresses, in a fascinating journey through a tumultuous period of French history.

Allplastics was approached by the NGA to fabricate clear acrylic showcase covers designed to protect the valuable painting and artifacts from being touched or damaged. Some of the Plexiglas showcases were up to 2m x 1.5 m x 800mm tall in 8mm and 10mm thick. These had to be fabricated with minimum glue marks and joined to withstand handling on site.

“The Allplastics team managed to fabricate extremely high quality displays within a short deadline” commented Daryl West Moore the consultant Exhibition designer “the relatively large displays were expertly packed in to crates and transported from Sydney to Canberra”

The Acrylic displays are a display in the NGA (along the more valuable items they are protecting! ) until the 17th April.

It is definitely an exhibition not to be missed!
