About Us

Welcome to Industrial Plastic Fabrications Ltd. We offer high quality machined, formed and fabricated plastic components, plus rapid prototyped parts and 3d printing  to the very best standard in the industry. Established in 1969 we have over 40 years worth of experience to draw from and our expertise is renowned within the industry.Whether you require our unique bureau service, or exceptional customer service delivered straight to you the client, we have invested in the latest technology so you don’t have to. Whilst our expert machinists can offer the tiniest of parts right up to 3050 x 2030mm parts in one pass, we’ve also invested in the latest 3D printing technology to provide you with top of the range Rapid Prototyping solutions in a wide range of shore hardnesses and finishes.Confidentiality is of the utmost importance to us and NDA’s are the norm, but did you know that when you shave in the morning, call home on your mobile, or slip on your child’s wellington boots at the weekend, you are likely to be using a product that has been professionally and carefully prototyped by us.Our precision machined, fabricated or formed components provide crucial parts for equipment used within the pharmaceutical, medical, aerospace, automobile, security, audio and broadcasting industries – in short our capabilities are wide and far reaching – we’ve even made a huge Perspex bed for a James Bond film!

MACHINING

We machine plastic components to your specification – for prototypes, small batches or production runs – using a variety of machining techniques, providing high-quality parts, quickly, accurately at a competitive price. These parts are carefully finished to your exact specification using a variety of techniques including polishing, engraving, silkscreen printing and coatings to enhance material performance.

FABRICATION

Fabricating plastic components using tensol and polyurethane cements to high specification, providing a cost-effective method for small batch production for a wide range of fabricated parts.

Plus we form plastic components to your specification using vacuum forming, drape forming, blowing, pressing and line bending techniques, providing a wide variety of parts with a minimum of tooling costs.

3D-PRINTING

We offer a range of 3d printing and rapid prototyping services to a wide range of industries as well as model makers and product designers. IPF were the first in the U.K. to offer the Polyjet system as a bureau service and use the latest Objet Connex 500 and Objet Eden Polyjet 350V 3d printing machines, providing fast and flexible high quality rapid prototyping solutions. Plus we use a Perfactory Envisiontec machine to produce small but incredibly detailed and accurate parts.

“You must have had the old time machine revved up to turn our job around that fast! They look great, thanks for getting them to us so quickly as we’re able to steal a march on the next part of the project now.”
