Thermoforming is the insertion of a cold thermoplastic sheet into the forming area, heating it to the desired temperature and then raising a mold (single or multiple) from below. For higher volumes and/or precision vacuum and pressure systems are often added.

A great many OEM’s need a good supplier for plastic parts. Perhaps you require one or more of these:

From heavy/thick gauge enclosures, containers, and tanks to very thin wall packaging the process permits a wide variety of possibilities, colors and shapes..

Thermoforming, Pressure thermoforming and vacuum forming offer several processing advantages over other plastic molding techniques as blow molding, rotational molding and injection molding. Low forming pressures and temperatures are features of thermoforming, thus enabling comparatively low cost tooling and relatively large size parts to be economically fabricated.

Also, since the molds are subjected to low pressures and temperatures, they can be made of relatively inexpensive materials and mold fabrication time is reasonably short. This results in comparatively short lead times. It provides the perfect solution for prototype and low quantity requirements of large parts as well as larger size runs with multiple molds.

We feature multiple suppliers for vacuum forming, thermoforming, and pressure thermoforming (as well as most other types of plastic manufacturing).   If your needs include thermoforming, vacuum thermoforming, or pressure thermoforming, please give us a call at (513) 489-5252. We are ready whenever you are.
