Vacuum forming is used to form simple hollow casings, often employed by the packaging industry but also used in the production of commercial products.
Rotational moulding is used for very large products such as kayaks, bins, play equipment etc. We have some experience of this and also a very good contact for manufacture of large parts.
This uses much more basic manufacture techniques with little or no tooling. It is quite restrictive but can be very useful when looking to keep tooling costs down.
Compression moulding is typically employed to produce larger, relatively flat parts and is commonly used to produce automotive parts such as spoilers and hoods, but can be applicable to all industries.
Blow moulding is the process by which plastic bottles and many other hollow plastic parts are formed.
Composite technology is used where the properties of a material needs to be mechanically enhanced. Examples include carbon fibre, glass fibre composites. We do have experience of working with these in various applications.
