Clear Polycarbonate Panels For Secure, Clear Security Screening Booths

Plas-Tech was invited to help with an OEM project by providing machined polycarbonate panels for security screening booths.

 

When it comes to selecting see-through plastics for an application such as this, engineers have three go-to materials available in large sheets to choose from: Acrylic, PETG and Polycarbonate.

 

In this particular case, the material had to:

  1. Be thermo-formable without losing its mechanical integrity.
  2. Maintain clarity.
  3. Have virtually unbreakable characteristics.

Polycarbonate was the material of choice.

 

Designers and engineers often work from theoretical and technical data when imagining materials to shape a finished product. To fully understand and appreciate all that plastic has to offer in terms of functioning in our everyday world, Plas-Tech provides design assistance along with machining and installation. There’s tremendous value in working with a partner that has pushed the limits of the material to the edge of its capabilities– sometimes farther than what even the manufacturer thought possible.

 

Plas-Tech is THAT partner. The firm has proven itself over and over again as a valued part of the design and engineering process, offering real-life experiences that assist in picking the right material for the job to minimize the risk of product failure and unforeseen costs later on.
