Allied Plastics team of Engineers is dedicated to creating you the highest quality Plastic Thermoforming. They will work side-by-side with you from Plastic Vacuum Forming project conceptual design through first part approval, tool machining, prototyping, and production run start-to-finish.

A Project Engineer will be assigned to your Plastic Thermoform Engineering project to ensure that all dates are met and specifications are obtained.Vacuum Forming Plastic Parts Design Engineering

Allied Plastics creates a highly Engineered solution to fit your Thermoforming need. Whether you need a new design, a current specification match, reverse Engineering, or assembly ingenuity, we will find the Thermoform solution for your project. Our skilled Design professionals use state-of-the-art equipment and ProEngineer 3D product design software to ensure your Custom Vacuum Formed Plastic product will be manufactured to your exact requirements and specifications time after time.

In-house Tool Building for Thermoform Parts

Allied Plastics Tooling Center will cut a prototype pattern from your 3D model CAD file using CNC equipment. Sample parts will be run on the pattern for your approval. Once approved, a cast of the pattern will be made and the precision tool will be detailed with water lines and vacuum holes to achieve maximum Thermoforming performance. This tool becomes the “master key” of the process to provide peak efficiency and consistency of your Vacuum Formed Plastic parts time after time.
