Plastic Vacuum Forming
Plastic vacuum forming offers several advantages over other forming processes. Unlike other thermoplastic forming processes, where powder or granulate are the starting point, vacuum forming uses extruded plastic sheet.
First established in 1967, we have over 50 Years' expertise and innovation in plastic vacuum forming. Our process utilises sophisticated PLC, pneumatic and heat controls – enabling higher production speeds and more detailed vacuum formed applications.
We can produce plastic vacuum formings up to 2 x 1 metres with a thickness of up to 10mm, in any extruded material, from any Pantone colour swatch. Since the vacuum forming process uses low pressures, moulds can be made of inexpensive materials and fabrication time can be reasonably short. Prototype and low quantity requirements of large parts (as well as medium-sized runs) therefore become economical.
Our in-house control system guarantees that each and every forming is scrutinised to ensure it conforms to ISO 9001 standards before leaving our factory. This provides both parties with added reassurance. We can provide specification data sheets of all raw materials, ensuring that the relevant specialist material is available for any application, including fire resistance, impact strength or conductivity.
