Vacuum forming converts a flat sheet of plastic to a 3D component. This is achieved by heating the plastic sheet and pressing it into a mould while a vacuum is applied from underneath. This is considered an efficient process for medium – to high-volume production,
At Polytech Plastics, we use vacuum forming in many applications including moulds, trays, housings, and product covers.

We can also produce jigs and moulds very economically in-house and then proceed to produce plastic items by vacuum forming or blow moulding. Long runs and short runs are both within our capability.
