Thermoforming in the Construction Industry

Thermoformed building materials have many advantages over components produced by other processes. More durable parts, the ability to produce a larger component, and cost-efficiency are some of the reasons thermoforming is used for items like shower enclosures, window well covers, insulation vents, paint trays and liners, etc.

The thermoforming equipment ranges from cut sheet sizes on all to 2’x2’ up to as large as 12’ x20’. We can make whatever size you request, as we are a custom thermoforming shop. These cut sheets are for various materials such as polypropylene, APET, HDPE, HIPS, TPO, EPS, ABS, polycarbonate and acrylic. Building products are produced on both shuttle and rotary cut sheet thermoforming equipment utilizing vacuum, pressure and twin sheet thermoforming processes.

Smaller, thinner gauge thermoformed products can be produced using Modern Machinery's continuous thermoformers, trim presses, and tooling with configurations including production from roll stock or in-line extrusion and with either rule/forge die or match metal trim.
