Vacuum Forming

Plastic Vacuum Forming

Ideally suited to low to medium-volume batch production, or very large-format assemblies, plastic vacuum forming offers a cost-effective alternative to injection moulding, which often involves a significant investment in tooling.

Our considerable expertise in vacuum forming plastic, particularly when it comes to material selection and manufacturing, means that we are able incorporate a diverse range of processes and products.

What are the advantages of Vacuum Forming?

Plastic vacuum forming has many benefits over other types of forming. When vacuum forming plastic, low forming pressures are used which enables the use of lower cost tooling and cheaper materials for the mould. This also leads to a reduced lead time for tooling manufacture, more cost effective vacuum forming products and more economical prototyping.

Whatever your product or industry, our plastic vacuum forming production specialists can advise on the best manufacturing process to give you the best solution for your budget.
