Welcome to The Vacform Group
Vacuum Forming
   

Vacuum forming offers several processing advantages over other forming processes. Unlike other thermoplastic forming processes, where powder or granulate are the starting point, vacuum forming uses extruded plastic sheet.

Our vacuum forming process utilizes sophisticated pneumatic, hydraulic and heat controls thus enabling higher production speeds and more detailed vacuum formed applications.

We can produce formings up to 2 x 1 metres, in any thickness up to 10mm, in any extruded material, from any pantone colour swatch. Since the process uses low pressures, the moulds can be made of inexpensive materials and mould fabrication time can be reasonably short. Prototype and low quantity requirements of large parts, as well as medium size runs therefore become economical.

Our in house control system guarantees that before leaving our factory, each and every forming is scrutinised to ensure that it conforms to ISO 9001 standards. This provides both parties with added reassurance. We can provide specification data sheets of all raw materials, ensuring that the relevant specialist material is available for any specialised application, including fire resistance, impact strength, or conductivity.
