FORMING

We produce parts with efficient repeatability, ensuring you receive

only the best quality results

Vacuum Forming

Single-stage vacuum forming is a cost-effective alternative to fabricated sheet metal, fiberglass, or plastic injection molding. We design and machine most molds in house, which gives us the ability to get the job done on a tight tooling budget.

 

Using vacuum forming technologies, we produce parts for snow plows, trucks, railway cars, handicap accessibility products, medical components, and enclosures for the electronics industry.

What is the Forming Process?

Our custom plastic vacuum forming services specialize in fabricating moderate volumes of thick gauge (1/16" to 1/4") parts measuring up to 8' x 4'. We design and machine most molds in-house, which gives us the ability to get the job done on a tight tooling budget. Able to work with materials including ABS, polyethylene, PETG, and UVEX, we offer various colors and textured finished options. Our modern facility and 20+ years in the business enable us to produce parts with efficient repeatability, ensuring that you receive only the best quality results from each production run.

Single-stage vacuum forming, the process of heating plastic sheets, laying them against a mold, then applying a vacuum between the mold surface and sheet, is a cost-effective alternative to fabricated sheet metal, fiberglass, or plastic injection molding. We currently use vacuum forming techniques to produce parts for vehicles such as snowplows, trucks, and railway cars, for handicap accessibility products for the medical industry, and enclosures for the electronics industry.

Capable of short lead times and just-in-time deliveries, we also provide rush services for parts using existing molds. As a full-service operation, we also provide in-mold labeling as well as sub-assembly operations and engineering assistance. Contact us today to learn how we can help you with your application.

Stock Car Racing Flow Hat

Automotive Equipment Industry

This vacuum-formed flow hat is used to direct airflow into a Holley two-barrel carburetor. Designed from a supplied mating part, it was critical that the mating pieces nested precisely to achieve proper airflow. Fitment of the two pieces was achieved by working closely with our customers to determine how the vacuum forming process could provide a low volume solution for their needs. 

 

5-axis CNC machining is used to trim this part to meet the exacting dimensional standards required.  We supply our OEM customers with lot sizes of 50, 100 and 250 units per order.
