Thermoforming

We specialize in thermoforming (also called deep drawing or vacuum forming) of plates and foils. In thermoforming, a plastic plate is heated. Through a vacuum, the plastic is then deep-drawn over a tool. Subsequently, the plastic part is cooled by a blowing device to a certain temperature and thus remains dimensionally stable. Using thermoforming, we make parts made of thermoplastic materials such as ABS, polypropylene or polycarbonate as well as material mixes with PMMA, ASA or TPU. With our process-controlled plate forming machine, we achieve efficient cycle performance and consistent product quality.
  • Cost-effective Part Manufacturing

    Using thermoforming, molded parts can be produced inexpensively. This is principally due to large purchasing volumes of raw materials, lower tooling costs and fast cycle times
  • Creative Decors through Raw Materials

    Es existiert eine breite Auswahl an Kunststoffen. Daher sind auch die Möglichkeiten verschiedene Designs zu erreichen durch bedruckte, genarbte, faserverstärkte und textilkaschierte Thermoplaste möglich. Materialkombinationen einer Grundschicht aus z.B. kostengünstigem ABS und Kaschierungen ermöglichen eine optimale Kosten und Designkombination.

How thermoforming works

Preprogrammed Accuracy

In the thermoforming process, we can precisely calibrate the various process steps such as duration, heating phases and cooling. Once the perfect settings have been found, our machine saves these and they can easily be used again later. This way we achieve a high and consistent quality level.
  • Cutting

    Depending on the geometry, it is possible to punch the molded parts subsequently or cut them through waterjet cutting. Even machining with saws or milling is possible

  • Edge Finish

    Visible edges can be bordered with different colored ribbons if desired. Even sticking / sewing profiles is possible

  • Assembly

    The parts can be assembled in a variety of ways, for example, through zippers, add-on elements and push buttons, or by gluing parts together
