Universal Plastics specializes in precision custom thermoforming, a plastic manufacturing process that converts a sheet of plastic into a highly detailed finished product, with less tooling investment than other plastic molding processes.
Heavy gauge thermoforming is a process
that converts a flat sheet of plastic into
a functional form. Since it is a low
pressure process, our tools are simpler
and less expensive than other molding processes.
Vacuum forming is a simple process with infinite applications. In this process, a hot sheet is stretched over a male mold, and vacuum is applied between the sheet and the mold, pulling the sheet tight to the mold.
Pressure forming is an advanced process
used to form plastic sheet into a highly detailed molded shape at a fraction of the tooling price of other processes such as injection molding.
Universal Plastics has expertise in manufacturing custom thermoformed plastic trays for a variety of end-uses including custom shipping trays, material handling
trays, dunnage and packaging trays, etc.
Vacuum forming and pressure forming are widely used for medical device housings as both processes can create distinctive products built to your specific needs by our talented engineering & manufacturing team.
Universal Plastics has the expertise to manufacture custom plastic radomes in
sizes up to 7' x 9' x 36" deep in materials including UV grade ABS, Korad
capped ABS, TPO and many others.
