vacuum formed plastic componentVacuum forming is a very economical method for producing plastic parts. The vacuum forming process can produce parts in various configurations in small and large quantities at a reasonable price. This process involves the controlled heating of plastic materials to a temperature where it is flexible enough to be altered by the shape of a mold with the help of vacuum. In this method, the heated plastic sheet is forced against the mold by the air pressure differential created by pulling a vacuum between the sheet and the mold.

Vacuum forming can be used for projects like:

  • product packaging
  • agricultural applications
  • medical applications
  • Lift truck enclosures
  • Railcar interior trim parts and seating components
  • Engine covers for construction equipment
  • Fascias for outdoor kiosks and ATM applications

Vacuum forming has advantages over other plastic production methods.

Here are some potential advantages that would make vacuum forming a good choice for your plastic part:

  • Large parts or multi-part uses
  • Moderate annual volumes
  • Tight tooling budget
  • Rapid product development

Materials commonly used in Vacuum Forming

  • ABS
  • PC/ABS
  • HDPE
  • TPO
  • HIPS
  • PVC/Acrylic
