Description of the Application
Munksjö Bridge in southern Sweden was built by a leading European construction company. The ten eye-catching brilliant and transparent segments at the tip of the masts were fabricated by Hecker from ACRYLITE® cast tubes with special dimensions (outer diameter 711 mm, length 2,900 mm, 10mm wall thickness). This material has great bondabilty, making the two thermoformed and subsequently CNC-routed clear half-tubes with two longitudinal joints almost invisible. The tubes were used as the crowning point on pylons that are illuminated with color changing RGBs. This method is especially suitable for a small number of items with diameters between 100 - 900 mm and lengths up to 2,900 mm.
