Diamond Edge Polishing

Diamond edge polishing is the method of choice for achieving a perfectly smooth edge on straight or sloping surfaces.

Our german engineered and built milling machine has a finely balanced milling tool with a poly-crystalline pre-cutter and natural diamonds to produce a smooth, glossy finished surface.

Diamond Edge Polishing is suitable for acrylic materials up to 2100mm in length. We can handle large orders as well as small volume Diamond Edge Polishing projects.

Product applications include:

  • High-end retail
  • Luxury branding blocks
  • Corporate awards
  • Thick materials
  • Items that will be viewed up close

flame polish edges acrylicFlame Polishing

Flame Polishing involves heating the surface of a material which causes slight melting to create a smooth finish. It’s particularly well-suited for edges that are difficult to access such as curved or tilted surfaces, holes or corners.

For items that are unsuitable for laser cutting, Flame Polishing can provide a similar finish.

Flame Polishing is fast, less expensive than Diamond Edge Polishing and gives a high-quality finish to all acrylic surfaces.  It is frequently used for prototypes and small batches.

Product applications include:

  • Small quantities
  • Prototypes
  • Areas that are difficult to access such as tight curves or corners
  • Items that will be viewed from a distance
  • When budgets are tight

Manual Polishing

Along with mechanical forms of Edge Polishing, we also provide Manual Polishing services that use a rotating polishing disk or a polishing cloth embedded with a special polishing paste.

Due to the intensive use of labour, Manual Polishing is mainly used for prototypes, small batches or high-end, high cost parts. It is ideal for small items with curved edges that will be viewed up close, such as corporate awards.

Manual Polishing can also be used for removing minor scratches and other repairs.

Product applications include:

  • Larger items with easy to access surfaces
  • Sloping surfaces
  • Small volumes
  • High-end items
  • Corporate awards
  • Repairs and removal of minor scratches
