What are the Key Features and Benefits of Heavy Gauge Thermoforming?

When we work with our clients in the development of OEM parts, our design engineering process focuses on the following key features and benefits.

  • Low-cost product and tooling
  • Customized design details to handle customer product and process functional criteria. Considerations for positioning, retention, and protection of product as applicable
  • Distribution requirements
  • Outdoor environmental considerations for design and appropriate material selection
  • Excellent aesthetics
  • Ergonomic considerations for:
    • Clients’ product assembly process –manual or automatic. Ease of assembly for increased efficiency and reduced cost
    • Consumer appeal and ease of use to enhance customer satisfaction, brand preference and repeat purchases of the product
  • Text/engraving or decorating requirements for corporate logos, part numbers, desired text, resin ID codes, etc. for identification and branding

Which Materials are used in Heavy Gauge Thermoforming?
