THERMOFORMING

Thermoforming can revolutionize your product's appearance and quality. The first consideration of a designer is whether the new part should be made out of aluminum, steel, wood or plastic.

In today's environment, many shapes can be readily and economically made using plastic. If plastic is the best choice, the next selection is the specific thermoplastic (materials capable of softening when heated and of hardening again when cooled) or thermoset material, and the process itself. Process choices include: compression molding, injection molding, rotationally molding, fiberglassing, blow molding or vacuum forming. Each process has its own unique advantages and disadvantages. Our certified thermoforming expert engineers use a material-neutral approach, providing you with the optimum solution for your product's requirements.

Typical applications include: Medical trays, aerospace components, covers, shrouds, enclosures, electronic trays, exercise equipment, cosmetic displays, packaging, and POP.

Products range in thickness and flexibility and attain crisp, sharp detailed finishes; we can achieve thicknesses between .0040" and .5".
