Products Hedge cutter
This hedge cutter shows how many different plastic materials are used in a product to obtain different properties.

The handle and the shielding plate are made from ABS plastic which ensures good impact strength. The motor housing, in PA plastic, has good heat resistance.

The sheath shows that a very long narrow hollow geometry can be produced in HDPE plastic by conventional injection moulding.
