Advanced vacuum-forming technology delivers high-quality, repeatable custom 3-D shapes at a fast turn-around

We provide in-house tooling and prototyping and long- and short-term production runs

Advanced vacuum-forming technology delivers fully-customizable, high-quality, repeatable, custom 3-D shapes at an efficient and economical turn-round. We provide in-house tooling and prototyping with long- and short-term production runs. It might sound complicated, but the process of vacuum forming is quite simple.

A&ES offers vacuum-forming technology to meet increasing customer demands for precise design specifications, consistent high-quality, and repeatable custom and sturdy 3D shapes. It is comparatively low-cost tooling. We have fast turnaround using ABS plastic shapes and components. ABS plastic is cost-effective and competitively-priced.

During the production, our talented design team members are focused on creating a 3D tool, instead of each invidual shape, saving your valuable time and money. This process works with sheet dimensions of 60” x103”. Depth of Draw 23” deep and involves:

  • Heating of the plastic sheet until it is pliable using negative pressure to create shapes
  • Draping of the sheet over a mold and a low-pressure vacuum is applied. The vacuum sucks in the plastics sheet forcing it against the mold.
  • The sheet is cooled and trimmed.

Vacuum forming uses low pressure, thereby molds can be fabricated from inexpensive materials and new molds can be tooled quickly. When it comes to vacuum forming, the possibilities are endless and allows for the production of countless items in a large variety of shapes and sizes. Our goal is to deliver consistent quality at competitive prices.
