Custom thermoforming has a variety of benefits that allow you to tailor plastic pieces for your specific needs. There are limitless possibilities – Polymershapes can help you to design custom thermoformed trays or a modicum of other things including car parts or other items used in the food and beverage industry. Let us share some of the advantages of thermoforming. Then, you can reach out to us to discuss how we can customize your project!

Low Cost

One of the biggest benefits of custom thermoforming is that the cost is typically nice and low for the buyer; Specifically, the cost of tooling is very low, so you won’t have to spend your entire budget on a single project. Thermoplastics are also lightweight, which means that you can save money based on the weight of your items in other ways; E.G., the molded plastics you order won’t be as expensive or difficult to ship or transport.

Quick Turnaround Time

Speed is another advantage of thermoforming. Whether you need custom thermoformed trays or another custom mold, it’s easy to get the job done fast. Thermoforming involves heating up a thermoplastic, such as a polycarbonate or ABS. That’s a quick job, so you can be confident that it will get done on time. That’s a tremendous benefit in industries where time is of the essence or when you may need plastic replacement parts on the spot to keep inventory at appropriate levels.

High-Quality Products

On the whole, the trays and other products you receive should be built to last, no matter their use. The quality of custom thermoformed products is at the same level as any molded products that have been injected, so you won’t need to worry overly much about replacement parts. If you do wind up needing replacements, don’t worry; they won’t cost an arm and a leg.

Custom Molds

Thermoforming makes it easy to customize the product exactly to your specifications. For example, you can make use of our CAD experts to create what you need, even if the shape is unique. You may require a certain size, shape, color, or depth, and none of that is a problem when you work with us.

In some cases, we may even be able to provide custom plastic pieces with an assortment of finishes or patterns, or plastics that can be painted later. Feel free to talk to us about the possibility of textures and other additions.
