Vacuum Forming Services

Pre-Production Wood Patterns

Pre-production tooling in the form of wood patterns are created to achieve mouldings for approval as well as being used for short run production jobs. We can work from CAD drawings or physical parts.

Production Tooling

Production Tooling

Production tooling in the form of cast resin is created by using casting mouldings from the wood pattern tooling. Other production tooling is CNC machined from resin, aluminium or composite block, eliminating the need for wood patterns.

Moulding

Vacuum thermoforming in PETG, HIPS and polypropylene including distortion printed images from our printing department. Vacuum forming projects can range from simple display trays to complex counter or floor merchandising units.

Pin Router

Finishing

Formings are trimmed, routered, de-burred and finished by machine or hand. After final or sub-assembly the formings are packed ready for shipment to the customer or transfer to our POS assembly department.
