The Difference is in the Tooling

The Difference is in the Tooling

The best way to successfully produce a part is to start with the right tool. And that holds true with thermforming as well. To ensure the correct tooling for an application, a thermoformer will consider a number of factors, including:

  • Expected volume
  • Stressful environments, including chemicals, impact and temperature
  • The relationship with mating parts

By working closely with a client up front to understand the parameters involved, a thermoformer can determine the best tooling design and material.

Most often, tooling is made from aluminum because of its thermal efficiency and durability. Not only do aluminum tools produce parts efficiently, with dimensional stability and repeatable appearance from run to run, they can yield an unlimited number of parts.
