Polishing Tools: Use a diamond polishing machine or cloth wheel polishing machine to polish and trim the edge of the acrylic sheet to improve the smoothness of the edge of the acrylic sheet and the appearance of the display stand.
Cleaning Equipment: Prepare a soft cloth and a special acrylic cleaner to clean the surface of the acrylic sheet and keep it clear and bright.
The following is the process of making acrylic display stands to ensure that you can make high-quality custom display stands:
CAD Design and Simulation: Using computer-aided design software to draw the design drawings of display stands.
Making Parts: According to the design drawing, use the cutting tool to cut the acrylic sheet into the required parts and panels. Make sure the cut edges are flat and smooth.
Drilling: Using a drilling tool, drill holes into the acrylic sheet for attaching parts and securing screws. Pay attention to controlling the depth and Angle of the drilling hole to avoid the cracking and damage of the acrylic sheet. (Please note: if the parts are glued using a display stand, then drilling is not necessary)
Assembly: According to the design plan, the parts of the acrylic sheet are assembled. Use screws and nuts to make connections that are tight and structurally stable. Use glue or acrylic adhesive as needed to increase the strength and stability of the connection.
Adjustment and Calibration: After the assembly is completed, adjustment and calibration are carried out to ensure the stability and balance of the display stand. Use auxiliary materials as needed, such as Angle iron, rubber pad, etc., to increase support and stability.
Polishing and Cleaning: Use polishing tools to polish the edges of the acrylic sheet to make it smooth and bright. Clean the display surface with a soft cloth and acrylic cleaner to ensure it is clear and bright.
Key Points to Note
When making a custom acrylic display stand, here are some key points to note:
Cutting Acrylic Sheet: When cutting acrylic sheets with cutting tools, make sure that the acrylic sheet is securely secured to the work surface to prevent movement or shaking. Use appropriate cutting speed and pressure to avoid excessive pressure resulting in the rupture of the acrylic sheet. At the same time, follow the instruction manual of the cutting tool to ensure safe operation.
Drilling the Acrylic Sheet: Before drilling, use tape to mark the drilling location to reduce the fragmentation and cracking of the acrylic sheet. Select the right bit and the right speed to drill slowly and steadily. During the drilling process, pay attention to maintaining a stable pressure and Angle, and avoid excessive pressure and rapid movement, so as to avoid the acrylic plate cracking.
Assemble Connections: When assembling connections, ensure that the dimensions and specifications of screws and nuts match the thickness and aperture of the acrylic sheet. Pay attention to the fastening strength of the screws, both to ensure that the connection is tight and also to avoid excessive fastening resulting in damage to the acrylic plate. Use a wrench or screwdriver to properly tighten the screws and nuts to ensure a secure connection.
Balance and Stability: After the assembly is completed, the balance and stability are checked. Make sure the display is not tilted or unstable. If adjustment is required, auxiliary materials such as Angle iron and rubber pad can be used for support and balance adjustment.
Polishing and Cleaning Precautions: When using polishing tools for edge polishing, pay attention to controlling the speed and pressure of the polishing machine to avoid overheating and damage to the acrylic sheet.
Maintenance and Maintenance Suggestions: When cleaning the surface of the acrylic sheet, use a soft cloth and a special acrylic cleaner, wipe gently, and avoid using corrosive cleaners and rough fabrics, so as to avoid scratching or damaging the surface of the acrylic sheet.
