High Frequency (HF) or Radio Frequency (RF) welding is the process of fusing materials together by applying radio frequency energy to the joined area. Using this method can result in a welding as strong as the original materials.

Using advanced technologies and innovative processes; we are committed to developing the best product possible to suit our customer’s budget and requirements.

We believe anyone can make a product, but what sets us aside from our competitors is that we truly understand our customers’ needs and treat each one as a valued business partner.

Bespoke engineering solutions

With decades of skills and experience, we are proud to offer a complete design and development service from concept idea through to the finished commercial product.

In the first stage, the Speed Plastics Development Team works closely with our customer to listen to their needs and understand their exact requirements. Our experienced team will then create prototypes, develop any in-house tooling that may be required and work closely with the engineering team who will take the product into the next phase of its journey.

Once a working prototype has been created, the Engineering Team refines the product design to determine the best manufacturing process possible and the right materials for the job. This team will also coordinate the relevant testing and ensure the manufacturing process is cost effective for our customer.

The Speed Plastics team are experienced in a wide range of manufacturing techniques including ultra-sonic welding, CNC machine cutting, tool making, sewing and screen-printing. Familiarity in a range of techniques ensures our flexibility and responsiveness to our customer’s needs to ensure lead times are short and products are made to the highest quality.
