About Thermoforming:

In general, a vacuum forming mold is much less expensive than an equivalent injection mold, especially for larger parts. Turnaround can be 1-2 weeks for prototype parts off of temporary tooling.

The pressure forming process produces highly cosmetic parts with crisp detail. A female mold can be custom textured for consistent part appearance, and pneumatic actuations can be utilized to achieve complex geometry like undercuts. This process is excellent for user-facing covers and housings.

Material Selection:

We commonly form both custom and standard colors of the following materials:

-  GP and FR ABS
-  Acrylic/ABS
-  Polycarbonate
-  Acrylic
