Vacuum forming is a flexible process that involves giving three-dimensional shape to an extruded thermoplastic material. Using sophisticated halogen heating systems, we can heat a wide variety of engineering materials, before drawing them onto our state of the art moulding machinery to form even the most complex of shapes, up to a maximum size of 3.2 x 2.8 x 1.0 metre deep.
The versatility of the process, together with the diverse range of formable materials available, mean that a wealth of colours and finishes with varying degrees of fire, chemical and temperature resistance can be moulded.
By combining a vacuum formed external skin with a reinforced rigid PU system, we can also mould structural covers that incorporate B surface detail such as ribs and moulded-in fixings.
