Metal to Plastic Conversions

Thinking about converting away from metal, fiberglass or injection molded plastic? Here is a list of advantages thermoforming can provide to make your conversion a success:

 
 

Compared to injection molding, thermoforming:

Has less expensive tooling costs

Faster tool changes

Can satisfy a lower volume niche & higher product runs

Produces a thinner gage than injection, resulting in lighter parts

Yields strong material from the uniform nature of the sheet versus random flow during injection

 

Compared to aluminum, thermoforming:

Has less expensive material costs

Creates lighter weight pieces

Makes parts more flexible and impact resistant

Is non-oxidizing and chemical resistant

Economically offers multiple cosmetic finishes

Has a wide variety of colors available

 

Compared to fiberglass, thermoforming:

Creates lighter weight and more durable parts (less cracking)

Offers better repeatability in each part, with less ambient influence on the process

Makes trimming into desired shapes easier

Offers solvent & ultra sonic welds

Produces less hazardous dust and raw materials

Creates no VOC’s

Is recyclable

Offers varied surface finishes and color throughout the part

Specialized thermoforming

Some of the world’s most recognized OEM’s rely on Fiber Pad for highly specialized thermoforming solutions.

Twin Sheet Process

Two plastic sheets are simultaneously heated and then formed or fused together to resemble a blow-molded or rotational molded product, with several advantages: two-color, two-material thicknesses option, hollow product, increased structural integrity.

Undercut Process

Undercutting allows the plastic to form into an area of negative draft. Typically this means that it is difficult to release the mold from the plastic. However, Fiber Pad has specially designed machines and processes to enable designs with undercuts.

Pressure Forming Process

Vacuum and positive air pressure is applied to achieve injection-molded level of details and textures without the high injection molding tooling cost.
