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 PLEXIGLAS® GS special tubes (dimensions: outer diameter 711 mm, length 2,900 mm, 10mm wall thickness). This involved the optically invisible bonding of two thermoformed and subsequently CNC-routed half-tubes with two longitudinal joints. The PLEXIGLAS® tubes were used as the crowning point on pylons that are illuminated with a changing play of color. This method is especially suitable for small numbers of items with diameters between 100 - 900 mm and lengths up to 2,900 mm.
