Vacuum forming is a very economical method for producing plastic parts. The vacuum forming process can produce parts in various configurations in small and large quantities at a reasonable price. This process involves the controlled heating of plastic materials to a temperature where it is flexible enough to be altered by the shape of a mold with the help of vacuum. In this method, the heated plastic sheet is forced against the mold by the air pressure differential created by pulling a vacuum between the sheet and the mold.
Our thermoforming facility is located in an ultra-clean, allowing us to effectively serve our clients and support our thermoforming business.
These specialists aid customers with sizing, design and more, to find the best solutions for their specific application.
