Thin Gauge Tooling – Tray and Clamshell Packaging Tooling – Production ToolsQuality thin gauge trays and clamshells begin with quality tooling. At Universal Plastics we make our production tools from machined aluminum and add temperature controlling to ensure an accurate replication of the mold surface and part to part consistency.

Typical tolerances are +/- .025 on the formed dimensions, and +/- .060 on the perimeter die cut.

Our maximum mold size is up to 30” wide, and 4” depth of draw.

Our team of qualified designers can help you create anything from complex material handling trays that protect sensitive components, a retail package that adds pizazz and security to your product, or even a simple drip tray to protect your equipment from caustic fluid damage.
