Machining Processes

CNC Routing/Milling

IPF have been using CNC machines since 1980 and are experts in CNC machining and CNC routing techniques.


IPF produce internal and external profiles, creating parts that can be more artistic rather than just functional.

Laser Cutting

IPF’s CNC Laser engraving service for profiling / cutting and engraving of acrylic. Produces clean cut edges and fine details.

UV Digital Printing

IPF have the alternative to silk screen printing, for prototypes and small batch prints.

Diamond Tip Machine Polishing

The superior alternative to buff polishing acrylic.

Fabricating Processes

Diffusion Bonding

Diffusion Bonding enables the bonding of Perspex (Acrylic) with clear void free joints without the use of cements, adhesives or solvents.

UV Cementing

Cosmetically perfect joints for Perspex fabrication.


Vacuum forming, drape forming, blowing, pressing and line bending techniques.
