Fabrication Processes

Heat Bending is the process of applying heat to a plastic material to change its shape in one direction. Video example.

Flame Polishing is manually applying direct flame heat in order to smooth and polish a rough material edge.

CNC Routing is a computer-controlled cutting machine used for cutting various hard materials, such as wood, composites, steel, plastics, and foams.

Die Cutting is an cost-effective process to cut custom shapes from sheet material.

Screen Printing is a method to achieve custom, four-color process graphics on various substrates.

Thermoforming is a manufacturing process where a plastic sheet is heated to a pliable forming temperature, formed to a specific shape, and trimmed to create a usable product. Video example.

Drape Forming is a technique using a single positive mold, on which a heated sheet of plastic is placed. After the sheet is softened by thermal processing, it sags and conforms to the shape of the mold under its own weight or by slight pressure applied by an operator.

We also perform general WoodworkingMillwork, and Case Work.

Print House

Our printing capabilities range from basic spot color printing to multi-color halftones and state-of-the-art four color process printing. We have multiple mechanical flatbed printing presses currently in operation with image areas of 24″ x 36″ and 36″ x 54″. We primarily use UV inks which produce a higher quality and more durable image compared to conventional inks. We are able to print at a resolution of 87 LPI, which is higher than the industry standard 55 to 65 LPI.

Sewing

Our sewing department produces job ticket holders, work order holders, and menu covers. Our standard cloth binding colors are black, red, and yellow. Our standard neon colors include red, blue, green, yellow, and orange. Additional enhancements include grommetting, magnet application, punching and assembly, PVC folding, and printing.
