Thermoforming for plastic parts

Thermoforming is a time-tested and proven reliable method for plastic parts manufacturing. At Texchem-Pack, we have a unique mix of thermoforming equipment which is used to manufacture a wide range of products in varying sizes and levels of complexity. These products are produced using a variety of raw materials. While thermoforming isn’t the only option available for producing reliable and accurate plastic parts, it certainly has several important advantages.

Benefits of heavy gauge thermoforming

  • Tooling and overall start-up costs can be significantly less expensive for small to medium production runs
  • Very fast turnaround time from initial design to finished product
  • Allows for both very small parts and very large parts, with sizes ranging from a few square centimetre to well over 10,000 square centimetres
  • Raw material thickness ranging from the lowest at 2 millimetres until maximum 12 millimetres
  • Large individual part sizes allows for more congruous designs
  • Plastics are lighter and more cost-effective than metal or fiberglass
  • Excellent detail and part-to-part consistency
  • Many options available for material type, color, surface pattern, and texture
  • Parts can be made using raw material formulated to withstand sunlight and severe weather exposure
