Oval Glove Ports

( Antistatic Static Dissipative )

Material Selection.

The process starts with choosing a suitable material, specifically antistatic polyethylene. The selected type is Prolen 600 EL / PE HMWPE, known for its high molecular weight and excellent antistatic properties, ensuring effective static dissipation and durability in industrial applications.

Material Testing.

The selected material is subjected to regular test procedures at multiple stages to ensure traceability and verify that it meets all specified requirements.

Programming and Tooling.

The third step involves programming the CNC milling machine with precise specifications. This includes setting up the tooling and preparing the machine for production.

The material is then loaded into an XYZ Mini mill, ensuring that all parameters are correctly configured for accurate and precise machining.

Machining Process.

The machining of industrial plastics does not require the use of traditional coolants. Instead, a controlled flow of compressed air is utilised to keep the tooling cool. This method prevents the tooling from overheating.

Post Machining.

Once machining is complete, the glove ports are deburred, cleaned, and inspected.

The glove ports are then incorporated into positive and negative pressure containment isolators and glove boxes.
