Why Thermoforming for Medical Devices and Components?
Pressure thermoforming provides an economical and attractive solution to manufacturing quality, large and aesthetically pleasing enclosures, panels, trays, covers and sidewalls.
Custom thermoforming provides parts similar to injection molding but at a much lower tooling cost. Thermoforming medical devices offers lower cost tooling for large part production and much quicker lead times to market which is often important in the medical device field. Mayfield’s thermoformed plastic part can be combined with sheet metal components in order to unlock the benefits of both materials you’re your product. Mayfield has the expertise, engineering assistance and proven experience to make your custom thermoforming medical device needs a reality.
