Cut to Size Plastics has expanded its range of solutions, as well as updating its branding, logo and technical support content to enhance its services for industrial and safety markets.

Engineering plastics, such tough, light, hygienic, easily-handled and low-friction materials, are continuing to provide cost-efficient alternatives to metals and has prompted Cut To Size to introduce new initiatives.

“We want our customers to know that we’re investing in a range of engineering plastics, fabrication technologies and information services to bring them a more advanced product offering, with faster machining times and outstanding technical support,” said Cut To Size managing director Laurie Green.

“After all our recent upgrades, it only made sense to upgrade our logo to match the modern Cut To Size Plastics.”

The company has introduced a new high-speed, vibration-free Morbidelli Author M100F heavy duty CNC router, as well as a Wegapress’ Flex Cover range of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) that has been chemically modified to make the tough, light material suitable for high temperature applications.
