We have focused our thermoforming production capabilities on the small to medium part size of the market. Our smallest aperture size is 23 inches by 15 inches and our largest size is 68 inches by 38 inches. We can form material up to a thickness of 0.3 inches using any extruded grade of material. This allows us to be cost effective for the majority of the market and provide low volume runs if necessary. Other companies may boast much larger sheet sizes and we accept that this is fine if you require larger parts, but if your component is not that big or you have minimum order quantities, how much are you paying for wasted material, if you don’t fill the sheet? Or do you have long lead times because your supplier is waiting for enough suitable work to come in to fill the rest of the capacity? If this sounds familiar, we have you covered.

Vacuum forming is highly constructive, simple and very cost-effective method of production, it offers close tolerances, tight specifications, and sharp detailed parts. Other advantages that vacuum forming hold  over other types of molding are as follows:

  • Easy Modification
  • Low Initial Project Costs
  • Short Production Times
  • Short Tooling Lead Times

Materials used in Vacuum Forming

  • Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS) offers good impact strength
  • High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) offers very good impact strength and chemical resistance
  • Polypropylene (PP) offers very good impact strength with good heat and chemical resistance
  • High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) offers good impact strength, often the lowest cost solution
  • Polycarbonate (PC) offers extremely good impact and heat resistance
  • ABS Capped
  • PETG Material
