We stock a variety of PE planks in different sizes and densities. If you require a different size than what we stock, don't worry! We can custom cut the plank or bun to whatever thickness you desire. The minimum orders for custom cut sheets is one full plank. The normal lead time for PE sheets is one week. Sheets are normally wrapped and taped in poly film for local deliveries. If you are going to be shipping these sheets LTL please let us know so we can package and price the sheet to match yor specifications to prevent the sheets from getting damaged in transit.
We do not stock any PE pads. Everyone needs a different size so everything is custom cut. Smaller pads are normally packaged loosely in a large box. Larger pads are usually stacked in a large box or wrapped and taped in a poly film bundle. Sometimes larger pads are placed on skids and wrapped with stretch film. Pads normally have a one week lead time. If you are ordering larger volumes, the leadtime may be longer. Either way, the leadtime will be stated on your quote.
Flash cuts are cut with a CNC machine which eliminates expensive tooling. This makes it very practical for producing small volume foam parts. Tool kits and sample cases are great applications for flashcuts. Kits and cases normally have several layers to store and protect multiple products. Tooling of each layer can make the cost for a dozen cases very expensive and impractical. Also, kits and cases can change from year to year making it even more expensive. With our flashcutter we can make the necessary Autocad adjustments and change the foam insert without costly revisions. However, our favorite thing about the flash-cutter is its accuracy and precision.
Die cut shapes are very efficient method of producing PE shapes. A die can be made in almost any shape.
We can nest shapes together to minimize the material necessary to make it. Die cuts can also be made to group multiple pieces together to be cut in one stroke. It can cut many shapes within a rectangle shape to create voids that seperate and protect the products that are shipping.If you have a less than average volume order, a die cut shape will pay off quickly. Ask us how!
PE profiles are always considered a custom cut. Profiles are a specific shape other than a square or rectangle. A rectangle with any slot, notch, or curve is a profile. Circles, hexagons, and triangles are all profiles. In order to get a quote for profile you must have a drawing that stipulates all of the dimensions necessary to shape the part. We can also cut shapes inside another shape. In order to do this there will be an entry cut and it is also the exit path back through the outer shape. The most common packagaing shapes are L-shapes, U- shapes, and multiple slotted shapes. We normally package most profiles in large boxes. The normal lead time for a profile is two weeks.
