Vacuum Forming

Vacuum forming can be used for many thicknesses of plastic sheet and can produce highly durable finished mouldings. It is also possible to create complex mouldings by vacuum forming.

Vacuum Forming is a highly cost effective way of moulding sheet plastic to produce high quality display and engineering products. Coupled with our other manufacturing services we can produce eye catching displays or precision made covers to meet the exacting requirements of a wide range of markets.

Vacuum Forming is an incredibly versatile form of manufacturing. Clear Acrylic can be printed before forming, to create a double sided bus Stop sign, or a simple shelf barker can be produced with a vinyl Graphic added afterwards.

We can work with many types of sheet plastic including acrylic, low density polyethylene (LDPE), high density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP) and crystalline polyester (CPET).
This is an example of our vacuum forming capability. The unit is a high speed packaging machine and has been finished off with 3 Precision machined Vacuum-formed covers manufactured from Coloured ABS.
