We use vacuum forming to make products for use in many sectors such as automotive, industrial, retail display and signmaking. Vacuum forming projects require additional processes throughout the manufacturing process and we are able to complete the vast majority inhouse – that ensures we can maintain high production standards, control costs and reduce timescales.
Additional processes include tooling and finishing such as cnc routing, profiling or polishing. We have invested in the latest kit to deliver these additional processes at maximum efficiency, reducing the impact of these processes on the environment by minimising energy use and material waste.
Recent vacuum forming projects
A number of vacuum forming projects have developed from the expansion of our sign making services. Letters and external parts such as logos etc can be vacuum formed. We developed these skills when manufacturing vacuum formed fascias for a number of car showrooms and we have since expanded into other signage services including illuminated signs for use internally and externally.
We also vacuum form parts for the automotive sector, and play an important role in the supply chain for this sector. Delivering high quality large volume parts ‘just in time’ is essential in this sector and we work with a number of manufacturers including Jaguar Land Rover and Morgan Cars.
Related to this sector, our recent project for Woodway Engineering has seen us vac form high quality casings for in car sensors.
For the retail sector vac forming is used to manufacture durable but inexpensive POS retail display products as well as bespoke POS developed for some of the UK’s leading retailers.
Finally we have increasingly seen the use of vacuum forming in plastic prototyping projects.
