Vacuum Forming Services

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

Vacuum Forming Services

We offer a full service starting with the design and manufacture of specialist engineering jigs and fixtures, plastic tooling & vacuum form tools. 3-D models and prototypes through to full vacuum forming production. Our design engineers can assist customers with their product or part design. We use SolidWorks, which allows us to analyse potential moulding problems. Almost all plastics can be vacuum formed, but if you are unsure, our engineers can help you. Typical plastics are; HIPS, ABS ,Rigid PVC, Polypropylene Copolymer, High Density Polyethylene(HDPE), Conductive Polystyrene, Acrylic, Polycarbonate, PETG, APET, Kydex.

Process & Project Management

Our team will work with you through the following stages of our process to ensure we deliver top-quality service and top-quality products.

Plastic Pellets
The process begins with feeding plastic pellets into the hopper. These pellets are then transported forward by a screw inside the barrel over a one-way valve called the screw tip assembly.
01
Heating
Heater bands surrounding the barrel warm the plastic pellets. As they move forward, they melt, forming a molten plastic mass at the end of the screw in front f the one-way valve screw tip assembly.
02
Injection
Once molten, the plastic is injected into the mould cavity by the screw acting as a plunger.
03
Solidification
Within the mould, the plastic solidifies, usually within a minute. Ejection: The mould opens, and ejector pins push the cooled part out before the mould closes to repeat the cycle.
