Vacuum Formed Plastic, Fabrication and Engineering Specialists.
Tillobie offer from prototype one offs, short runs to production quantities, through to many 1000 off batches.
We work with every vacuum formable material from HIPS, to fire retardant Polycarbonate. Many of our customers in Medical, Amusement and automotive industries require specialist materials, as dictated by the application of the end product.
Depending on the nature of the project we can produce very low cost tooling in MDF (ideal for prototype proving), Resin Tooling for short batch runs up to 100 off, aluminium tooling for forming PC & HDPE in low to medium batches, through to fully water cooled aluminium tools for up to 1000 off batches.
Vacuum Formed Plastic For Medical, Amusement, Automotive Industries & More.......
Vacuum forming or thermoforming are general terms used to define the manufacturing process in which a plastic sheet is heated to a defined temperature and moulded to a 3 dimensional shape using vacuum and compressed air. Vacuum forming offers significant benefits:
- Lower tooling costs – in comparison to injection moulding, vacuum forming offers a very cost effective route to manufacture for low to medium volume projects.
- Low cost prototyping .
- Short product introduction lead-times.
- Flexibility on trim and hole details.
- Wide choice and flexibility on colour, finish & material selection
