Vacuum Formed Plastic, Fabrication and Engineering Specialists.
WHAT WE OFFER
At Tillobie our success comes from our customers’ success, and we begin each project by identifying which plastic thermoforming process will meet a customer’s budget & quality criteria.
Vacuum Forming is the leading Plastic Thermoforming process in which sheet plastic is heated and formed over a mold by removing air from the area between the mold surface and the sheet. Molds can be created from aluminum, wood, or epoxy. The plastic mold type is only dependent on the finished vacuum forming product design requirements.
The advantage of plastic vacuum forming is its flexibility, as are cost effectiveness and speed of production. Prototypes can be produced quickly and accurately to prove parts before full production tooling is required. Tooling costs are also substantially less expensive in comparison to most other plastic process manufacturing, namely injection moulding, especially on large parts or short production runs.
