What is Plastic Thermoforming?

CBM Plastics helps you choose the best production process for your parts needs. Thermoforming is the perfect solution for large-scale designs or shorter production runs. The plastic thermoforming process consists of:

  • A sheet of plastic is heated to a forming temperature.
  • The heated plastic is stretched onto a single-surface mold.
  • It is then drawn against the mold by a vacuum to create a three-dimensional shape.
  • After the shape is formed, the part is trimmed and finished to meet the customer’s needs.

Products Made with Thermoforming Plastic

The process of thermoforming plastic is extremely versatile and cost effective. Industries that can benefit from thermoformed components include:
  • Construction
  • Agriculture
  • Outdoor Power Equipment
  • Lawn & Garden
  • Janitorial

Benefits to You for Working With CBM Plastics

CBM Plastics maintains a high standard of excellence in all we do. Advantages to you of our plastic thermoforming process include:

  • Lower Initial Costs

    In thermoforming, mold designs are less complex and perfectly suited to smaller production runs.

  • Cost-Effective for Larger Size Components

    Because bigger parts require larger molds, thermoforming is more cost-effective for large-scale components.

  • Faster to Production

    Since thermoforming is less time-consuming to set up and less complex, lead times are generally faster. This gets your prototype or final product into production in a more timely fashion.

  • Versatility

    Thermoforming allows a great deal of flexibility in product design.
