THERMOFORMING, WORKING BEST UNDER PRESSURE

Our clients take advantage of our thermoforming capabilities in instances where they are seeking lower tooling costs and lead times when compared to injection molding, or wanting to benefit from shorter cycle times and increased throughput on larger parts when compared to rotational molded parts.  For more information on how METHOD can assist you with your upcoming project, please call 604-888-2008 or email us at info@methodinnovates.com.

Vacuum Forming 

Vacuum forming is a basic process in which vacuum evacuates air trapped between a heated sheet and a mold. Atmospheric pressure forces the sheet against the mold, conforming to its contour.

Pressure Forming

By using additional pressure the formed part to take on the intricate detail incorporated into the mold. Pressure formed parts maintain the detail and appearance of an injection molded part with considerably less tooling costs.

Twin-Sheet Forming

Twin-sheet forming is the synchronized vacuum forming of two separate thermoplastic sheets in separate matching molds mounted opposite each other. The twin sheet parts take on the characteristics of rotationally molded or blow molded parts but have distinct advantages in design flexibility and tooling costs.
