Rapid Thermoforming

Thermoform styrene tray gif

Combining 3D and plastic forming technologies helps customers prototype and manufacture real production parts with increased complexity and flexibility. Design, tooling and parts are fast and inexpensive compared to most other processes.

Available Materials

thermoforming vacuum forming materials abs petg styrene

Stocking a wide range of materials like PETG, ABS, Styrene and much more in thicknesses ranging from 0.020" to 0.250" (0.5 mm to .6.5 mm.) Real thermoplastics are strong, durable and inexpensive compared to 3D printed materials.

 

Using a variety of fast and inexpensive techniques, like 3D printing, milling and casting RapidMade can produce tooling in under 48 hours. Find out more!

3D Plastic Imaging

Printing high resolution 2D images onto sheet plastic and intex to 3D tooling to which takes consumer products, packaging, retail displays, and signage to the next level.

 

Guidelines


Large Forming Area With Deep Draw

Bed size of 20" x 18" with a deep draw of 11.5"

Thin to Thick Plastic Gauges

Form sheets from 0.020" to 0.250" thick

Wide Plastic Variety

Use PETG, HIPS, ABS, PC, Acrylic, TPO and many more

Pre-Stretch

Blow air through pressurized container for higher quality deep draw parts

Auto-Level

Pressurized container avoids plastic sag and improves part quality

High Wattage Heater and Cooling Fan

Reduce cycle time and control dimensional stability

Custom Forming Windows

12" x12" and 6" x 6" forming windows reduce material consumption for smaller parts
