An Overview of the Equipment, Materials, and Processes Used to Manufacture Plastic Partitions / Sneeze Guards
Increased Demand -
If youve walked into a gas station, grocery store, or most any retail business in the last month, you probably noticed plastic dividers between you and the employees at these locations. These partitions are designed to help fight against the spread of COVID-19 (and other airborne diseases) by blocking direct exposure to airborne droplets. With many retail stores, restaurants, and other businesses opening back up across the US, these sneeze guards and employee partitions have seen a massive spike in demand. This has been accompanied by a significant interest in the manufacturing community on how these partitions are made and what equipment is used to make them.
Equipment List -
M-Series CNC Router - (IN-STOCK NOW) This compact moving-gantry machine is designed to provide the ultimate value with the perfect balance of performance, quality, and price. If you need quick delivery and a standard build, this is the machine for you.
M-series Twin-head - Increase your throughput by having 2 spindles! All the great benefits of the standard M-Series, but built specifically for higher production applications.
G-Series CNC Router - Take your production to the next level with a heavy-duty, moving-gantry CNC machine. The G-Series is built for those looking to focus on high-volume product manufacturing and want even more capability.
C-Series CNC Router (Dual-Table) - If high-production and superior edge quality are high on your list, the twin moving-table design of the C-Series delivers. Having two tables allows you to load and unload one table while the other table is machining. It reduces spindle idle time, and ultimately allows your shop to make more parts per shift. The all ball screw design will also give you that high-quality finish for applications that demand a flame-polished edge.
Automation - CR Onsrud offers a variety of automated solutions for increased production and reduced labor costs.
O-Flute, High Helix - 3/8in - Specifically designed for Acrylic to provide a nice finish with upward chip removal (at medium feed rates).
O-Flute, High Helix - 3/8in - Specifically designed for soft plastics to provide a smooth finish and upward chip removal (at medium feed rates).
2-Flute, Low Helix - 3/8in - Great for thin or less rigid plastic. Two flutes allow for faster feed rates.
2-Flute, High Helix - 3/8in - Great tool for edge finish on thicker or more rigid plastics. Two flutes allow for faster feed rates.
CRO-280 (2F Router, High Helix) Great tool for Acrylic, also works well in the harder more rigid plastics.
