Our Vacuum Forming Services

We Vacuum Form products for a wide variety of requirements. From industrial transit packaging, engineering formings, point of sale and custom enclosures and fascias to safety products.

This is thanks to our factory, which houses the finest equipment, operated by a highly skilled workforce.

In addition, our CNC Routers allow for 5 axis machining on vac formed parts for greater consistency.

We’re also an environmentally aware company. Committed to using recycled materials when suitable. This and carefully considered manufacturing allows us to reduce our overheads for a competitive edge.

Understanding Vacuum Forming

The Vacuum process involves heating a plastic sheet until soft. Compressed air is then blown into the chamber forcing the material into a bubble shape. This pre-stretches the plastic for better distribution, and then the mould is raised.

Subsequently,a vacuum is then applied, sucking the sheet onto the mould. Following that the sheet is then cooled using fans and when cool enough, it’s ejected from the mould using compressed air.

In its advanced form, the vacuum forming process utilises pneumatic operating cores to remove undercuts. This improves the level of detail.
