Heavy Gauge ThermoformingHeavy gauge thermoforming, sometimes referred to as thick gauge thermoforming, is used to create sturdy rigid enclosures for equipment such as computers, medical devices, radomes, electronic enclosures, outdoor equipment, and exercise equipment.

An advantage of heavy gauge thermoforming, is lower tooling cost and much lower minimum quantity runs. Economical low-volume or to moderate-volume runs are possible with heavy gauge thermoforming as opposed to much more expensive upfront tooling cost of injection molding. The ideal volume for thermoforming is annual quantities of 10 up to 500. All of this is achieved, while controlling the aesthetics and incorporating the colors and branding of our customers. Call us to discuss your need for low volume thermoforming.
