CNC Cutting - thick(ish) perspex / acrylic etc


Recommended Posts

I've been asked to procure some CNC-cut sheets of perspex / acrylic / whatever transparent. Size will be approximately 1m square. They are going to form a support cradle for a racing dinghy, and will be about 20mm thick.

I'd assume that this stuff is best cut with a waterjet?

Does anyone know of a supplier who can supply and cut this sort of material? Ideally in the south east / London / Suffolk, and who can do the job in the next fortnight?

This may sound odd but it is worth trying a local shop sign maker. i.e. the ones with big plastic letters. When I was looking at CNC cutting tools for my company there were plenty of demonstrations of cutting thick clear plastic by manufacturers of CNC router tables marketing them to this industry.
