Quality is the foundation of all services, we use our professional experience to understand customer needs, to manufacture cost-effective products for customers
“One stop service”
We provide one-stop service, which means that we not only provide cost-effective vacuum forming products, but also pay attention to other needs of customers and provide all-round service to customers.
Lead time for sample: 15 days;
Lead time for mass production: 25 days
The typical steps to a project are as follows:
Design Stage: The customer supplies their own design and we generates 3D presentations for their approval. Once a concept is approved, mold engineering drawings are generated.
Prototyping Stage: If required by customer, a prototype mold is generated and samples of the parts are made to judge fit, form, and function and to determine applicable plastic material and color. R&D is done at this stage.
Final Tooling Stage and material ordering: Precision aluminum tooling and all forming and trim fixtures are made and material is ordered based on the size of the tooling.
Production: Upon arrival of custom extruded material, production commences. First time production runs usually take a longer time then re-runs since it takes time to register and document the machine and the set up procedure.
Shipping: Products are shipped either in one lot or warehoused for lot releases as established by customers.
You already have your product designed. You probably have it as a drawing or CAD and know the dimensions and material that you want to use. We are happy to provide you with a free quote!
A vacuum fixture is required when a part must be CNC trimmed. Vacuum fixtures are constructed by taking a reverse impression of the part and mounting this impression into a vacuum box. The trim fixture then holds, under vacuum pressure, each part being CNC trimmed to ensure consistent results. Other tooling specifically required in the forming, trimming, fabrication, and assembly of each part is designed by Fiber Pad, Inc. engineers and constructed by the tooling department.
Of course. With 20 years thermoforming experience we can help with all aspects of the project. Tell us what you want to achieve and we’ll help determine the right tooling, testing and material for the project.
We have a dedicated and experienced design and CAD team who are experts at product development. They can turn a basic concept or drawing into a workable cost-effective design, with all the CAD drawings and data required to guide our leading-edge material.
Large panels, housings, enclosures, and similar parts are especially well-suited to the thermoforming process. Tooling costs for these parts is considerably less than injection molding, which may have cost-prohibitive tooling costs. Parts with features mostly confined to one side of the part are best suited to thermoforming, but features on the uncontrolled side of the part may be addressed by trimming or fabrication and assembly.
