• What is your sample policy?
A: As a custom OEM service factory, We can only provide samples
with extra charge, but if you consider that business can be
materialized after receipt of our sample, We will deduct the costs
of the sample from your quotation subsequently.
• How do you pack the goods?
A: We have more than 10 years experience on export, finished
products will be carefully handled by three steps:
1: Wrapped with packing paper,
2: Packaged with PE foam,
3: Put in an appropriate carton box or wooden boxes and be fixed firmly.
• What is the Surface finishing of your products?
A: Smooth, Matte, Glossy, Textured, Painting, Customized.
• How can I know the status of my order?
A: We will keep you closely informed about the progress of the
production, to ensure all issues are resolved prior to the delivery
of goods. QC certificate and image of the products will reach you
by E-mail if required.
If everything goes smooth,We shall sent off the goods immediately,

Thermoforming is one of the oldest methods of processing plastic
materials. Vacuum formed products are all around us and play a
major part in our daily lives. The process involves heating a
plastic sheet until soft and then draping it over a mould. A vacuum
is applied sucking the sheet into the mould. The sheet is then
ejected from the mould.
Is Vacuum Forming still an important process / technology?
Vacuum forming originates from the 1930’s and yet it remains
increasingly relevant today.
No alternative process can match the low cost, ease of tooling,
efficiency and speed of replication for prototyping and small
series of certain shapes. One of the main benefits of vacuum
forming is the speed at which tooling can be produced and the cost
compared to injection moulding is substantially cheaper.
Combining vacuum forming with new technologies such as 3D printing
for tool design, thermo-formable ink technology and In-Mould
Decoration bring new possibilities and advantages as employed by
the world’s largest brands and institutions. Formech collaborates
with Dupont, BASF, Cambridge University and many more international
technology centres to conduct research into new advanced composite
materials which will bring new possibilities for vacuum forming for
high tech industries. The world’s leading material science
companies continue to invest in development of thermo-formable
plastics which are more efficient to process and kinder to the
environment. Engineering grade and composite plastics are typically
much more demanding to form successfully or require industrial
specification machinery. Formech now offers a range of high
performance and compact machines bringing industrial processing
capability to lab environments for efficient testing and research
with new materials.
Vacuum Forming, 3D Printing & Injection Moulding
Every process is there for a good reason and usually each process
occupies its own space within the complete manufacturing spectrum.
Vacuum forming is a valid alternative to 3D printing and injection
moulding when looking at the overall picture, taking into
consideration tooling time and cost, complexity of the part
required, finish, quantity and delivery time. When you consider all
of these important aspects, it will become clear that vacuum
forming, 3D printing and injection moulding all have a part to
For one-off prototypes of complex shapes 3D printing brings certain
advantages over vacuum forming and most other processes by the
ability to create a complete, finished component without design
constraints and requirement for trimming.
At Formech we embrace 3D printing as a complementary process to
vacuum forming for most design challenges. 3D printing brings new
possibilities for creativity and versatility in tool design with
cost effective and easy replication when used in conjunction with
vacuum forming. Most of the world’s leading design labs utilise
both techniques back to back.
