Vacuum forming

Vacuum forming

Vacuum forming (also known as thermoforming) is a popular method for producing all kinds of shaped plastic components. With over 30 years of experience in plastics processing, vacuum forming is also one of our areas of expertise. Together with our partners, we efficiently implement your ideas and find tailored solutions for our customers’ individual requirements. From development to finished products, all from a single source, all outstanding in quality.

From the vision to the finished product

The vacuum forming process is ideal for creating three-dimensional moulds using simple tools. The thermoforming process works by heating a plastic sheet until it becomes pliable and pulling it by vacuum into a shaped vacuum forming tool. Our modern, high-performance vacuum forming machines offer a bench size of 250 x 250 mm to 2000 x 1200 mm and can be negatively or positively moulded. After cooling, the formed plastic sheet retains its given shape. The components can also be cut and processed using our 5-axis machine in a later process. As an expert in plastics processing, we always deliver dimensionally stable and high-quality results.
