_O5 : Pneumatic Frame Forming

 

 

Why : Using a custom designed pneumatic press, we form our handmade eyewear for facial comfort and to accept lenses.

What : Heated in a small oven, the frame’s bridge is ‘bumped’ to form space for the wearer’s nose. This avoids the frame resting or rubbing on the skin. On either side of the bridge, the frame is curved which allows lenses to be fitted by our glazing technician.

Where : Our mission to be part of recogniseable eyewear brands is to take responsibility in our manufacture. We recently worked alongside a local pneumatics company to develop our own machine for forming our frames. In doing so we avoided having to outsource this process for our bespoke spectacle frames whilst generating work for a local company. As seen across the Banton Frameworks social media feeds we showcase our manufacturing capabilities, the forefront of our endeavour to produce high quality eyewear.
