Thermoforming provides a lower cost alternative compared to the high upfront costs for injection molding tooling. Thermoforming is ideal for designs that could change with trial-and-error, which is often the case in the Electric Vehicle (EV) industry.

The reduction in cost leaves more room in your budget to allow for changes to tooling. Tru-Form Plastics manufactures .010” Poly Carbonate – up to 70” long and 20” wide.

Top 3 Benefits of Custom Thermoforming
to the Automotive Industry

1.    Low Upfront Cost

The thermoforming process has a minimal upfront investment because it costs much less to develop the mold than with traditional injection molding, which involves pushing molten material into an expensive, intricate mold capable of receiving it.

2.    More Flexibility

Thermoforming offers more flexibility than tradition injection molding. Products can often be produced and delivered in a few weeks. Thermoforming molds can also be revised quickly and affordably, giving you the freedom to experiment with new designs or materials.

You can produce a small batch of insulators or other parts, check for form, fit and function, and make quick, inexpensive changes for the next iteration. Thermoforming is ideal for designs that could change with trial and error.

3. Increased Durability

Injection molded components are all produced at a consistent level of thickness, regardless of durability needs. Custom thermoforming is more flexible. It allows you to design and produce an insulator that best meets your durability needs:

  • Vary thickness by part based on temperature changes
  • Design custom vent holes and openings for cables
  • Wider choice of materials for durability and containment
