Why Use Thermoforming Instead of Other Types of Molding?

Molded PlasticsThere are a variety of ways to mold plastics into the many objects we use in our everyday lives. Some of these processing techniques include injection molding, blow molding, rotational molding, and thermoforming. At Tru-Form Plastics, we use the thermoforming method for several important reasons.

Lower Cost

One of the biggest reasons we advocate for thermoforming, is because it is one of the least expensive ways to form plastics while still achieving a great outcome. Our clients are always looking for ways to cut costs, and this is an easy way to save without sacrificing quality.

Short Lead Time

Thermoforming is also a relatively fast process, which means we can turn around orders quickly for our clients. This is important for clients who need to stock shelves quickly or who use just-in-time inventory practices.

Easy to Make Changes

With other types of plastics processes, even small changes to your design can mean big upfront costs. These costs are much lower with thermoforming. That means you can feel a lot more confident in making updates and improvements to your product design without a huge price tag attached. Interested in learning more about the thermoforming process?
