Vacuum-forming allows for endless possibilities and the production of countless items in a large variety of shapes and sizes.
A&ES vacuum-forming saves you time & money while providing unlimited options.
A&ES offers vacuum-forming technology to meet the ever-increasing customer demands for cost-effectiveness and competitive pricing, precise design specifications, consistent, high-quality, quick turnaround, and repeatable custom and sturdy 3-D shapes.
Our talented design team members focus on creating a 3-D tool during the production, instead of each shape, saving you valuable time and money. This process works with sheet dimensions of 60″ x 103,” a 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, allowing fabrication of molds from inexpensive materials, and tooling new molds quickly. When it comes to vacuum-forming, the possibilities are endless, and it enables the production of countless items in a large variety of shapes and sizes. Our goal is to deliver consistent quality at competitive prices.
