Vacuum Forming

Vacuum forming is when a sheet of plastic is heated to a forming temperature, stretched onto or into a single-surface mold, and held against the mold by applying vacuum between the mold surface and the sheet.

Anza has been providing this service for many years. We have the capability of designing the parts, designing the molds/fixtures and forming the parts. Multiple machines allow us to make very small parts using material thickness as thin as .01” to as big as 4 foot square and forming up to ¼” thick material. We can provide secondary operations also: CNC routing to help trim parts and CNC machining to provide through-holes, slots, scores, etc.

Small prototype quantities to several hundred have been accomplished. We have made blisters, clamshells, J-Packs and point of purchase displays serving industries such as: personal care, food and beverage, signage, display, medical, industrial, commercial and medical. Our clients that have low annual usage take advantage of JIT ordering to minimize inventory on the shelf and keep out of pocket cash at a minimum.
