Machined Plastic Signs for Car Manufacturing

Partwell Group Signs

A UK car manufacturing client contacted the Partwell Group CNC engineering office looking to freshen up the signs throughout their site.  The current signage consisted of hand written signs and old rundown wood signs which was not in keeping with the state of the art factory environment. The criteria requested by the client was bright, aesthetically pleasing, low maintenance and long lasting.

Engineered Plastic Solution

Working closely with the client, PlayTec two-colour laminated material was chosen for a bright and aesthetically pleasing signage solution for their factory.

The Play Tec display signs also offer health and safety benefits as it will not splinter or chip like wood. They are dirt and water repellent, UV resistant and offer excellent strength and rigidity for a long service life, which the client felt fulfilled the initial criteria.

How it Works

PlayTec is multiple different coloured extruded plastic sheets layered together, Partwell CNC router the laminated sheets to bespoke customer designs.  A range of bright colour combinations are available – yellow, red, green, black, blue, monochrome etc.

This extruded material is most commonly machined into bespoke plastic parts is the school, nursery and leisure industry due to the bright and colourful appearance and its good weathering and durability properties.
