Thermoforming Material Selection Thermoformed parts are made from thermoplastics, which are plastics that can be repeatedly heated and cooled without change to their characteristics. In order to be thermoformed, these materials are produced in sheets. These plastic sheets are loaded into the thermoforming machine where they are heated to their glass transition temperature. At [...]

Thermoforming vs. Injection Molding  Both thermoforming and injection molding are widely used plastic manufacturing methods. While both technologies require molds, they differ in many areas, including process, part design, cost, and volume. In general, thermoforming is best suited for large parts, including packaging and enclosures, while injection molding excels with small, end-use parts.  In [...]

Thermoforming Cost

Thermoforming Cost The cost of thermoforming depends on several factors, including the design, tooling, materials, and labor needed to complete your part. You can expect to spend $2,000-10,000 minimum on a single thermoforming mold. Each plastic sheet will cost $35-45 based on the material choice, but if a part is small, multiple may be [...]
