Thermoforming is a manufacturing process whereby a plastic sheet is heated to a pliable forming temperature, formed to a specific shape in a mold, and trimmed to create a usable product. Auwell has rich experience in manufacturing and supplying plastic thermoforming parts to our worldwide clients.
There are two main types of forming process for plastic thermoforming parts production: vacuum forming and pressure forming. Vacuum forming uses heat and pressure to draw plastic sheets into its final configuration. Once a sheet is heated and placed over a mold, a vacuum is used to manipulate it into its desired shape. Pressure forming has many similarities to vacuum forming, but has the added benefit of additional pressure. This pressure allows for greater detail and texture, making it a solid choice when aesthetics is an issue. The most common way from Auwell plastic thermoforming parts production is vacuum forming.
Many uses are available for plastic thermoforming parts. One of the more common is packaging, particularly rigid packaging for food and consumer goods, but it has many other applications including automotive, machinery, medical instruments, white goods, furniture, fitness equipment etc.
Plastic thermoforming parts production is a relatively low-cost process compare to plastic injection, especially the tooling cost, in some cases, can be 95% cheaper compare to plastic injection molds. Also, with much faster development circle. The most common material for plastic thermoforming parts production is ABS. The color can be pre-ordered if the order quantity meets the MOQ requirements (normally 1,000kg). Also, paintable plastic is also available, allowing for a wide range of customization to meet customer needs.

-Comprehensive Solution Provider
Auwell provides comprehensive services for Plastic thermoforming parts development starting from designing, through prototyping, tooling/fixture development, sampling, mass production, and to logistic and post-sale support.
-Rigid QC Policies
The most rigorous quality policy starts from material control, and is followed through to final pre-shipment inspection for Plastic thermoforming parts orders. Material certificates include the mill certificate, 3rd party chemical components, and mechanical property reports, as well as RoHS and REACH reports upon request. We structure our processes, creating Flow Charts and Control Plans before production, making sure all QC processes are in accordance with ISO9001-2015 requirements and drawing specifications.
-Flexible Payment Term
For tooling, the general payment term is 50%-50%, meant 50% deposit, 50% after first sample free. For mass production, we offer flexible payment terms, reasonable credit terms will be given, the client only pays when they are happy with the product they received. For long-term projects, we offer call-off inventory services for fast delivery requirements.
