Why you should choose
us for Thermoforming
& Plastic Fabrication
Our expert plastic fabrication technician can utilise thermoplastic materials and mould it into the shape you need. We do this with a process called thermoforming which requires a special type of plastic that can withstand heating.
Our team of plastic fabrication experts will help you with any design you have. We build one-time custom products, prototypes and multiple items. We can make your product or item in any colour you choose and we can even engrave it or cut it to any shape you require.
We can take care of the entire process of building your product or help only the thermoforming. Our professional design team can create a design for you or work from your professional CAD file or drawing. We’ll also help you select the right plastic for your project. Every plastic and material we work with has unique properties and benefits.
The process of thermoforming allows multiple colours to be used and for texture to be added to create a truly individualised piece.
The thermoforming process
Thermoforming involves heating up a sheet of thermoplastic material until it is pliable enough to be formed into a 3-dimensional shape from a mould. This is done with vacuum air pressure or by mechanical means. Once cooled, the plastic will retain its new shape and can be cut and trimmed to size.
We can use a variety of materials for thermoforming including; Acrylic, Polyethylene, Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) and Polycarbonate.
