Both vacuum forming and thermoforming of transparent plates are suitable for the manufacturing of highly transparent and visually pure components. Thanks to our know-how we are able to maintain these properties even for large parts. We are able to handle plates with a size of up to 2.000 x 3.000 mm. Three-dimensional technical parts intended for small or medium-scale serial production are generally formed by machines.
Thermoforming machines of many different sizes are available to form the components. Depending on the size of the parts, we can choose the most cost-efficient machine for you. The thermoforming machines are equipped with integrated heating units, thus enabling highly precise heating of the plate material. All details of the three-dimensional forming are therefore precisely shaped.
In comparison to injection moulding, the forming method applied to plates is a more cost-efficient alternative for smaller series. The cost for forming tools in particular is significantly reduced. Depending on the design of the product, we use male or female tools and where necessary, a counter tool or counter-die. You can fully rely on our expertise – we will choose the appropriate processing method and tools.
At Plexiweiss, your custom-made parts are in good hands. We guarantee high dimensional accuracy, a variety of materials and retention of material-specific properties. Our service includes support in material selection, construction, tool engineering, prototype construction and serial production.
