Thermoforming Plastic -
Thermoforming is a generic term for the manufacturing of plastic components through the vacuum and/or pressure forming processes. A simplistic overview of the single-sheet thermoforming process consists of heating an extruded sheet of plastic and either forming the sheet over a male mold or into a female mold. Depending on what type of mold a customer selects, the thermoforming process allows the customer the ability to receive a part with the same aesthetic properties as an injection-molded part at a fraction of the tooling expense involved in injection molding.
Heavy Gauge Custom Thermoforming
We are a Heavy Gauge Plastic Thermoformer forming plastic with widths (up to 89 "), and thicknesses (up to .450"), with 3 layers, in 2 material structures (ie: A.B.A. capability). We form sheet with ASA (Acrylonitrile \ Styrene \ Acrylate Copolymer), Korad film & Acrylic capstocks.
We also form parts in the following materials:
* Most resins are available in UL or FDA compliant grades.
