injection moulded, im looking for good source?

hi all... looking for some help in locating a uk compnay that can do injection moulds from plastic/perspex. etc
they have to be able to form somthing like a fish tank from clear perspex...
about a foot deep and 3 foot long... it cant be built up perspex like a till cover as it needs to be seemless...
any info appreciated

Rob,

What you describe sounds like a vacuum forming process is all you need. Vacuum forming is a world cheaper than injection moulding. You could make your own forming tool out of MDF with holes drilled to create the vacuum. My experience of vacuum forming and injection moulding is mainly in the west Midlands but it's a very common process, a quick search on www.yell.co.uk for VACUUM FORMING in GLASGOW found 2 companies.

There are many vacuum formed signs out there so you probably know all about it but a fish tank shape without seams sounds like a sheet forming job to me.

Regards
Ramjam
