Quality American vacuum formed plastic manufacturers
Vacuum forming, which is a version of thermoforming and one of the oldest plastic forming methods, occurs when a sheet of plastic is heated and formed onto the surface of a single-surface mold by a vacuum. Only one side of the plastic sheet is shaped using the mold.
This process is typically used for larger products / parts at smaller production runs and is good for rapid prototyping. It allows for lower setup and design costs compared to higher-volume plastics manufacturing processes such as injection molding. Use of the vacuum forming method is common in many automotive components such as bumpers and door interiors, engine covers, parts for ATMs / kiosks, and plastic packaging.

Special properties can be incorporated into the materials such as UV protection, flame retardance, electrical conductivity, solvent resistance, food grade, etc.
