Cms is the first Approved Partner who manufactures thermoforming equipment. Brett Martin’s 5mm Marpet-g FS plastic sheet, which does not need to be pre-dried before thermoforming, unlike other plastics, was tested on Cms’s Eidos 1512 using a vacuum forming machine with halogen heaters and an aluminum mold. This sheet is ideal for various POS and 3D displays, as well as signage and industrial applications.
Daniel Long, area sales manager, Cms UK, says, “Our recent experience forming Brett Martin’s PETg material on our Eidos vacuum forming machine within the Cms Technology Centre was a great success. The high quality of the material, combined with the Cms Eidos, produced vacuum formed parts of an excellent quality. The PETg material reacted well with our latest technology, granting high productivity.”
Brett Martin’s Approved Partner Program sees the Northern Ireland-based plastics manufacturer work closely with a number of renowned printing, cutting, and now thermoforming machine manufacturers to test and showcase the capabilities of its semi-finished product portfolio.
Simona Firth, semi-finished product manager at Brett Martin, says, “We’re delighted to see our Marpet-g FS plastic sheet perform so well on Cms’s equipment. Our Approved Partner Program is crucial to our product development. It validates our products’ quality and ensures their reliability and versatility for printers. Companies such as Cms allow us to understand how our products are performing and make sure they are compatible with with the latest processing technologies to ensure suitability for a wide range of applications.”
