We will work closely with you to provide bespoke solutions that best fit your manufacturing needs - Bainbridge delivers a design service that is fast and efficient. 

3. In-house Tensile Testing

All our sailcloth products undergo rigorous testing using our Lloyd Instruments single pillar machine with an annually certified and fully electronic load cell.

Further it can apply compressive force to be able to measure a material’s ability to take load in any direction - an example is testing the hardness of plastics or metals.

Therefore, the same machine can test materials of many sorts in most products, so if you have a need to test something before using it in manufacture, you only have to ask.

4. Cutting & Nesting

Bainbridge can plot or cut from your drawings or designs as a ntv or a dxf file and take those and prepare them as cutting files - these are the fully nested instruction sets suitable for plotting and cutting.

Our nesting software ensures that material wastage is reduced to the mathematical minimum – the iterative algorithms used are the best available and fully automatic.

Bainbridge also offers full batch traceability together with customised labelling to exact customer specifications using the your own specialised packaging materials as required.
